Rock Ferry Wines is looking for experienced and enthusiastic winery workers to fill the role of Assistant Winemaker and Cellar Hands.

We make a wide range of hand-crafted wines from our organically-certified vineyards in Marlborough and Central Otago. 

We are expecting to harvest 450 tonnes of grapes and as we are a small producer you will be able to be involved in all areas of wine making.

We expect to start vintage in early-March with Sparkling wine and finish with Central Otago Pinot Noir and Tempranillo mid-May.

Only people eligible to work in this country should apply for this position. Please provide evidence of your work visa or citizenship.

  • 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.
