Whitehaven Wine Company is a leading New Zealand family-owned wine company producing an award-winning collection of 100% Marlborough wines, with an uncompromising focus on quality. While a medium - large winery, Whitehaven prides itself on operating as a small facility with a traditional approach to our winemaking, centred around respect and attention to detail for every parcel of fruit that arrives, right through to the bottled product. Our broad portfolio of wines is sustainably grown and produced and we are committed to improving all aspects of our social and environmental integrity under the company values of Respect, Integrity and Teamwork.

Located in the scenic heart of Marlborough’s golden mile of winemaking and with a brand new winery receival and press area ready for next year, we are now accepting applications from dynamic and driven individuals wanting to join our small and passionate winemaking team for vintage 2022. At Whitehaven we believe our wines can only be as good as the people making them and pride ourselves on providing a fantastic working and learning environment for all involved!

While our standard contract lengths are 7 weeks, we have a limited number of contracts available up to 13 weeks duration and alternatively, can also cater for those interested in contracts shorter than 7 weeks.

All positions advertised are full-time, fixed term.
