Treasury Wine Estates, who own Matua Marlborough winery, are speaking to those affected by plans to axe about 175 jobs across their global organisation.
The Australian-based company released a statement last month announcing they would cut costs by $35 million over the next year and jobs would be cut across all regions and functions in New Zealand and Australia, so they could invest more in consumer marketing.
A company spokesman could not comment on how many jobs losses Matua Marlborough winery would suffer, but the Express understands there would be little, if any. A Matua spokeswoman would not talk to the Express about the job loses.
Is the region better served by having multiple events over one weekend or spread out throughout the year?Related story: (See story)
