Cellarhand (Wine Jobs: Wine Retail & Sommelier)

Full Time

  Pernod Ricard

  Marlborough, Marlborough

Winery Work

Position available carrying out the physical aspects of making wine excluding bottling

Pernod Ricard Winemakers New Zealand has a position available for a Cellarhand, due to an internal promotion.  We are seeking a positive, capable and self-motivated individual to join our full-time permanent team.  This is an outstanding opportunity to join one of Marlborough’s largest wineries. 

  • Marlborough location
  • An opportunity to work for a global company
  • Career development opportunities

You will not only have access to a great team environment, but you will also receive a product allowance and following 12 months of service, access to medical insurance for you and your family.

To be successful in this role you will need a can-do attitude, plenty of enthusiasm, to be hard working and have the ability to thrive in a continuous improvement environment with a safety focus.  Due to the technical nature of some of the processing operations, you will need to be comfortable working with semi-automated equipment and have problem-solving skills. As this role is physically active a good level of strength (e.g. ability to lift heavy loads) and fitness are important.  Ideally you will also have a clean, full NZ Driver’s Licence.


Our Cellarhands play an integral part in the wine production process from grape receival to finished wine dispatch.  They assist with all aspects of juice and wine processing ensuring work is carried out on time and using quality cellar practices.

Previous winery experience would be advantageous although training will be provided.  You should have a practical aptitude and good communication skills.  An interest in wine would be a bonus.

If this sounds like an opportunity and the new challenge that you have been waiting for we’d love to hear from you!

Please note, our Marlborough Winery will be Smokefree from 1 July 2019.

We will only accept applications from those with the ability to legally work within New Zealand.

Applications close 19th July 2019.  We will review applications as they arrive.
