Villa Maria Estate Ltd - Marlborough - Nelson/Marlborough
Villa Maria is 100% family-owned and is New Zealand’s Most Awarded winery. For the last four consecutive years Villa Maria has been named in the top ten most admired wine brands and number one in New Zealand by Drinks International. At Villa Maria, we are as passionate about our people as we are about producing quality wine.
Our Marlborough Winery in Blenheim is Villa Maria NZ’s largest facility, concentrating on Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Fruit is sourced from local vineyards and others as further afield as Waipara and Nelson.
We are now seeking candidates to join us in Marlborough for the 2020 Harvest season. For the Harvest season, duties vary, but may include fruit receival, running presses, filtration, tank rackings, barrel work, plunging and pumping over red ferments, juice and wine additions, loading/receiving tankers, cleaning and stock control.
We are looking for energetic, self-motivated people with a hands-on approach and strong attention to detail. Experience in the wine industry and an interest in wine would be an advantage, as would holding a valid forklift licence.
The Harvest employment period in Marlborough is February to May. Shift work will be required during the peak of vintage, working up to 12 hour shifts across 6 days.
