Are you an experienced winery Cellar Hand looking for a change of scenery? Have you just dipped your toes into your first harvest and thinking this might just be the industry for you? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, then we might just have the role for you!

Who are we?

VinLink is a contract winery working primarily with Marlborough’s signature grape, Sauvignon Blanc. We have industry-leading technology and a wide array of cool machines. If you want to join a company that’s going through some exciting growth, who puts worker safety and wellbeing first, and provides a fun and supportive team environment, then keep reading.

We are currently looking for passionate and motivated team players to join our small permanent crew in the following production roles:

Experienced Cellar Hand(s)

What are we looking for?

  • Technical knowledge of typical winery equipment
  • At least 2-3 vintages working with white wine, preferably at least one in a large winery
  • Cellar experience outside of harvest with blending, filtration, dispatch etc.
  • Supervisory experience is a plus, as this role can grow to involve training and supervision of less experienced workers during vintage

Cellar Hand(s)

What are we looking for?

  • At least one vintage working in a hands-on winery cellar role

Other winning attributes we are looking for in both roles are:
