We are currently recruiting for the following positions for our Vavasour Winery:

Vavasour is a medium-sized winery, crushing approximately 3,000 tonnes and located in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley.

We are producers of premium, cool climate style wines including, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir.

Previous winery and/or lab experience, and/or wine qualifications would be an advantage, as would a current Forklift licence, but is not essential.

These positions will typically commence in early-March, with peak Harvest shifts typically being 12 hours, 6 days per week. A hot meal is provided with each shift during the vintage intake period.

We have a small, extremely capable permanent cellar crew, vintage positions would therefore ideally suit candidates with a passionate interest in wine, who work well under pressure, are able to multi-task, and can carry out their duties in a timely and efficient manner.

We can give some support with Visa Applications and help with sourcing accommodation.

This position provides a unique opportunity to work with one of New Zealand’s leading wine companies.
