Wither Hills – Vintage 2021 Positions

 

Established in 1994, Wither Hills (owned under the Lion portfolio) is dedicated to the philosophy that exceptional wines are ‘created in the vineyard’. Named after the landmark Wither Hills range that borders our vineyards, our expert team grow and craft exceptional wines that reflect our unique sense of place. 

We have a number of positions available within our friendly winery team at Wither Hills in Marlborough for the upcoming vintage.

  • AREA SUPERVISORS

Working closely with the Shift Supervisors, this position requires those who can lead, train and supervise a small team of people, have strong communication skills and be familiar with cellar operations. You will make health and safety a priority and ensure all tasks are completed to a high-standard and efficiency is maintained.

  • CELLAR HANDS

Previous winery experience and/or industry qualification would be an advantage, but not essential.

Cellar hands will perform tasks such as cleaning, grape receival processing, racking, red and white ferment management, additions, barrel work and more.

  • LAB TECHNICIANS

The position will involve conducting routine analysis on juice & wine samples as well as data entry.  A qualification in science would be desirable and industry experience is preferred.

  • FORKLIFT DRIVERS

This role involves working across all areas and teams. It requires strong logistical, communication and organizational skills. Previous forklift experience is essential, a current NZ approved forklift license is an advantage, although training will be given to the right candidate.

Depending on the season, work will commence in February 2021 and finish around the end of April 2021.  During the peak of harvest, team members will be required to work 12-hour shifts, six days a week.  We’ll provide everyone with a delicious meal during 12-hour shifts and get together for the odd social event.

All successful applicants will be offered an in-house induction and training for their roles, consider health and safety first and be open to learning our processes and procedures. So, if you want to be part of a fun and motivated harvest team and make some great wine, we would love to hear from you.
