Closes: 31 October 2019

Allan Scott Family Winemakers is a family-owned winery and vineyard in the heart of the Marlborough wine growing region: the main varieties are Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. We also bring small parcels of grapes up from Central Otago to process at our winery. Our dedicated team endeavour to offer unique wines that enhance typical Marlborough characteristics with complexity and finesse.

We are looking for intelligent, energetic, self-motivated Cellar Hands and Laboratory Technicians with a hands-on approach and strong attention to detail, to join our committed and highly-motivated team. Experience in the wine industry and being passionate about wine is essential and holding a valid forklift licence would be an advantage.

You will be part of a small, dedicated team in a winery environment. A positive attitude and good sense of humour are essential.

These positions will typically commence in early/mid-March and end at the end of April/early May, with peak harvest shifts typically being 12 hours, 6 days per week.

Successful applicants will have access to accommodation, along with assistance with visa applications, if required.

Applications close 31st October 2019.

  • Jobseekers should be aware that the start and finish dates of harvest work employment may change from those suggested by wineries at the time of your job offer. Vintage dates can not accurately be predicted.

    It is therefore important that you understand that depending on your employment arrangements with the employer there may be a period of time where you have no work or less work than you were expecting, and should have sufficient financial arrangements in place should this occur. Your actual start and finish dates may vary - if you have queries around this, check with your winery employer before booking airline tickets etc.
