Job Description
The Glover Family Vineyards whānau is seeking an Assistant Winemaker to join the team.

Established in 1985, Glover Family Vineyards is a small but spirited family-owned wine business with a passion for organic, single-vineyard winegrowing. We make a wide range of hand-crafted wines from vineyards across the Marlborough region, which express the ethereal, aromatic and structural flair of the land.

Our vision is to create an environment embracing the values of whanaungatanga (whanau/community, kinship), kaitiakitanga (guardianship, custodianship) and tūrangawaewae (a sense of place) within the ethos of our business, our vineyards and our winemaking.

The ideal applicant will be instrumental in supporting Ben, Susie and the team as we continue to see and develop premium organic growth within our business.

You will need to be driven, independent, empathetic, articulate, not afraid to get stuck in, and ultimately enjoy all facets of what is ‘Wine’.

He aha te mea nui o tea o? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.

What is the most important thing in the world? It is the people, the people, the people.

The Glover family were one of the first to plant grapes on their farm in Marlborough’s Dillon’s Point sub-region in 1988. Nineteen years later, led by eldest son Ben, the family launched Zephyr, a range of single vineyard wines from the farm. The name Zephyr means ‘a gentle breeze’. Inspired by the prevailing wind that moderates their vineyards, it is the perfect fit for the Glover family. Never still, always on the go, always innovating and planning their next move on the farm, in the wines and with the family.
