Whitehaven is a friendly, family-owned Marlborough winery, producing quality regional wine. An opportunity currently exists for a Vineyard Manager, responsible for The Tussocks and Te One vineyards, located along the north bank of the Awatere River. This role would be ideal for an experienced Vineyard Operator who is looking for an opportunity to step up to a management position.
Supported by the Senior Vineyard Manager, this role is hands-on and varied. The successful person will be responsible for managing the 32 planted hectares (over two sites) of Sauvignon Blanc and improving general surrounds. A harvest role overseeing mechanical harvests and occasionally assisting with grape sampling, is also required. Previous practical vineyard experience is required.
The successful applicant will be a self-starter, mature in outlook, take pride in growing quality wine and possess a range of practical skills. An ability to prioritise, problem solve, manage staff and contractors is important in this role. Familiarity with industry software (eg Grapelink, SWNZ) and appropriate qualifications (Growsafe, Heavy Trade Licences) is also useful, though training is provided and supported by Whitehaven.
