Matua began as a small family business in the 1970's and quickly became known for innovative wines and the producer of the first New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Today at Matua we continue to produce award-winning innovative wines for people to enjoy world-wide. 

At Matua we pride ourselves on being the place where a diverse mix of talented people come together to make great wine, do their best work and make lifelong friends.

We would like to hear from passionate and experienced Laboratory Technicians interested in joining our Vintage 2020 team in Marlborough. 

Our vintage roles are full-time, fixed-term positions usually running from mid-Feb to May, depending on winery requirements. During the peak of harvest our vintage staff can work a 6 day week, with up to 12-hour shifts. 

Key responsibilities include:

  • Sampling and running lab analysis

  • Carrying out quality control checks

  • Trouble-shooting and problem solving

  • Supporting other team members of a close-knit team

To be successful in this role applicants should have a passion for wine and preferably be experienced in the use of laboratory equipment. Ideally, but not essential, candidates will hold a tertiary qualification in a scientific field. Applicants must have good written and verbal English language skills and have legal entitlement to work in NZ.

As a part of the Matua vintage team you will have the opportunity to work with a great team, earn competitive pay, and receive valuable training.

  • 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.
