About us and the role

Pyramid Valley occupies a privileged position amongst New Zealand fine wine producers, having gained a stellar reputation for exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines over the last two decades.

With new plantings at our Waikari Estate in North Canterbury coming into production, we are looking for additional assistance with our vineyard operations. This is a full-time, fixed term role for the 2022/23 season with a focus on operational aspects of plant and machinery of these narrow row, intensively planted, biodynamically farmed vineyards. This role will also have involvement with our leased vineyard in Waipara.

You will need to love working with small, technically-smart gear on the vineyard and across the estate, and have some good experience at an operational level in agriculture, horticulture or viticulture. Tasks will include, but not limited to, management of all plant and machinery operations and maintenance, operating the Niko tractors for all tasks such as spraying, weeding, trimming, mowing, mulching etc, trellis and vineyard infrastructure maintenance.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about growing naturally-farmed, exceptionally high-quality grapes and being involved in making some of New Zealand’s greatest wines. This is an opportunity for the right person to become part of a wonderful New Zealand fine wine story. This person will take great pride in their work, be organised, clean and tidy, have an eye for detail and be willing to contribute to team decision making

If you think you have got what it takes, or even if you are not sure and want to give it a shot, get in touch. We embrace people from all walks of life in our team.
