Booster, through its Booster Tahi investment arm, is making significant investments in New Zealand’s agricultural business including avocados, kiwi fruit, and through investments in the wine industry. It is here at Awatere River Wine Company where a dynamic, reliable team player is required to join our Marlborough-based winery as a Cellar Hand.
