Full Time

About the business

Ant Moore Wines was created by winemaker Ant Moore over 10 years ago. The wine and its several brands has achieved a good presence internationally, particularly in the US. It has a growing reputation for quality, illustrated by the accolades and market development its achieved. With this strong growth over the last 2 years, taking the business to over 50,000 cases in sales, an investment in a new Commercial Sales Manager is necessary to take this success to the next level.   

Part of the strength of Ant Moore Wines is the wider group, owning and operating over 170 hectares of vineyards and a 15,000 tonne winery (Marlborough Vintners), building recognition and substance to the story. Add to this a brewery and cellar door project under construction in the heart of the Marlborough wine region, making it the first venue of this kind in New Zealand.     

With a team of winemakers, the winery also produces wine on contract for over 20 different NZ wine companies, so access to resource and connections are strong. The person chosen for the new position will be working alongside some outstanding leaders in the industry.

They will also be key member of a close-knit senior management team and lead a small team consisting of an international Sales Director and a local Logistics Manager.

As a dynamic and open-minded employer, Ant Moore Brands will offer flexible working hours to the right candidate.
