Vineyard Manager (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )

Full Time

  Mt Beautiful Wines

  Canterbury, Christchurch/Canterbury

Teece Family Vineyards is a distinctive 81-hectare vineyard property in Spotswood, nine kilometres north of the pastoral farming town of Cheviot in North Canterbury, New Zealand.

We grow ultra-premium grapes for our internationally distributed Mt. Beautiful wine brand, in addition to fruit contracts for other nearby wineries. The vineyard is also home to a recently constructed 600 tonne state-of-the-art winery facility that specializes in small lot fermentations for Pinot Noir and gentle, hands-on production for our white wine program, which includes Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling varieties.

Teece Family Vineyards is surrounded by Teece Family Farms, an 1000 hectare sheep and beef grazing property that is also used for tourism activities. Nearby in the town of Cheviot, we have a modern Café and Tasting Room, along with a newly renovated six suite luxury guest lodge at Manuka Bay; bringing wine tourism intrigue to the North Canterbury region, and making us an attractive destination for visitors and locals alike.

Other initiatives under the Teece umbrella include EskHead Station, a 15,300 hectare high mountain station located 1.5 hours from the vineyard, as well as Caverhill Farm, an 809 hectare beef and sheep grazing property located just south of the vineyard, featuring four kilometres of scenic North Canterbury coastline.          

Job Purpose

In conjunction with the New Zealand General Manger and New Zealand-based Company Viticulturist, the Vineyard Manager will manage daily operations, as well as fully participate in the future strategic growth and direction of the vineyard.

We are looking for a hands-on manager who is passionate and committed to viticulture and wine, preferably with a minimum of 3-4 years vineyard experience as a manager or assistant manager (ready to step up) with formal qualifications in either viticulture or horticulture.

You will need to be self-driven, results-orientated and display excellent teamwork and collaboration skills.

This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a dynamic company and team that is forging new ground in the wine world and a new wine area in NZ.

A salary package will be negotiated relative to experience and skills.
