Vintage Cellar Staff

Company: Jackson Estate

Category: Harvest / Vintage

One of Marlborough’s original family winemakers, Jackson Estate has always focused on producing the absolute best wines possible from our Estate vineyards.

As such we have built a brand new winery specifically for the top 15% of our wine program, focussing primarily on our premium cool climate Pinot Noir’s from the Marlborough region.

We are currently seeking motivated and experienced candidates to fill the following positions for the 2018 harvest season.

  • Vintage Senior Cellar Hand/Supervisor
  • Vintage Cellar Hand 
  • Vintage Laboratory/Cellar Hand 

We are a small team so you must have a winemaking qualification, worked a minimum of three vintages in a red cellar and be thoroughly versed in all areas of cellar or lab operations.

You must be adaptable and also be able to work independently for extended periods, and will have a current forklift licence and be experienced driving one.

Having a genuine passion for wine and an interest in learning how we produce world class wines from the Marlborough region will be a significant advantage. 

Employment would commence mid/late March 2018 and would run for 4-6 weeks. The ability to work 7 days a week and long hours each day over a sustained period of time is essential.

This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to experience a New Zealand vintage.  

All applications will be treated in strict confidence.
