If you’ve got great people skills, enjoy providing high levels of customer service, love wine and having fun, and have a positive and upbeat attitude, then read on!

Located in the beautiful Awatere Valley, (just south of Blenheim), our tight-knit team is dedicated to delivering outstanding service.  We produce a selection of sustainably produced delicious wines that are showcased in our Cellar Door. 

Reporting to the Cellar Door & Events Manager your primary role will be hosting visitors on site by conducting wine tastings, leading sustainable vineyard tours, hosting VIP’s, community and education groups and assisting with functions. 

The position is part time, with a minimum of 18 hours per week (in the off season) and increasing to up to 30 hours per week during the peak summer period – which is right now! 

It’s going to be all go when you join, so to enable you to hit the ground running, you’ll ideally have prior experience working in either the hospitality or retail industry, but if not don’t worry as we’ll train you.  It would be great news if you have a Duty Managers Certificate, but if not, we can help you with this too!

What’s in it for you?  

· A professional (fun!) team with strong ethics 

· Great salary, health insurance and wine allowance, and 

· A day off on your birthday!
