Harvest Crew 2022 - Marlborough and Waipara

We are currently recruiting our 2022 Harvest Crew at both sites. Processing premium grapes from multiple regions and multiple varieties on behalf of our Clients, you will join a small winery team in a hands-on role.

We have positions available as follows:

Assistant Winemakers

Cellar Hands

Lab Technicians

Your key attributes will include:

  • Excellent time management skills
  • Strong work etchic
  • Attention to detail
  • The right attitude, enthusiasm and energy
  • Ability to work in a team environment

The positions will commence late February/early March and run for 6-10 weeks. During the harvest peak, staff will be expected to work a 12-hour shift, 6 days a week. For a Cellar Hand role you do not need any experience. Full training will be provided on the job and these are skills you will be able to use elsewhere.

We offer the best payrates, a great team environment, fabulous vintage meals and a big Vintage party once all the grapes are harvested.

If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!

  • 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.
