Cellar Door Host (Wine Jobs: Wine Retail & Sommelier)

Full Time

We have recently changed our name from Akarua Wines & Kitchen by Artisan to Mora Wines & Artisan Kitchen. This was a result of the sale in October of the Akarua brand to Edmond de Rothschild Heritage Wines. The Skeggs family has subsequently launched a new brand called Mora (Latin) for to pause or to linger. This brand encompasses a wide range of premium Central Otago varietals which will be sold through our restaurant and cellar door just outside of Arrowtown.

Mora Wines & Artisan Kitchen is still jointly owned and operated by Debbie and John Pickens (Artisan Catering), with the same incredible team.
