When you choose to join Villa Maria you’re joining a family
We’re a team of passionate and loyal people, committed to delivering NZ’s most adored wine brand to the world.
We pride ourselves on our exceptional quality and innovation and this has seen us become New Zealand’s leading award-winning winery.
Sir George Fistonich founded our company in Mangere, Auckland in 1961, and our Auckland Winery, Vineyard Café, Cellar Door and head office remain at our Mangere site.
Today, our family of wineries are located across three sites, Auckland, Hawkes Bay and Marlborough, with each site offering a unique career experience.
We are as passionate about our people as we are about producing quality wine and we offer a broad range of career options for people wanting to join us.
All 2021 vintage recruitment has now ended. Please keep a look out later this year for 2022 vintage positions.
Join our Villa Maria Cadet Programme to kick start your career in the wine industry. As a Cadet, you will be given dedicated development, training, and mentoring by some of New Zealand’s most experienced wine industry experts. Our Cadetships are offered on a fixed term for a period of two years where you will gain exposure to both winery operations (Cellar) and viticulture. This programme will likely appeal to a school leaver, a graduate or someone looking for a career change.
