Award Winning Organic Vineyard

"we are passionate about producing the best wine possible"

This is the Deal

Would you like to work on a family run, organically farmed vineyard in the famous Bordeaux wine region in France?

We are an English family who organically farm a vineyard of 8ha (20 acres) producing around 15,000 bottles of award winning red, white, rose and sweet wines. We do everything ourselves here from farming the vines to making and bottling the wine so it's a great opportunity to see everything that's involved in wine making.

The work is mostly all outside in the vineyard and is all physical, you need to be physically fit and strong and not mind working in all weathers, the winters are cold and wet and the summers hot.

Welcome Skills: farming, hardwork

Accomodation

We have an independent apartment with two bedrooms, bathroom, living room, kitchen and dining room which is available for volunteers, however in the summer we run a B&B from the apartment so accommodation will be in our main house, where there is a large bedroom with bathroom just across the hall.

What Else

Our family is my husband, Paul (44) and I, Kirstie (39) and our two boys who are 8 & 6. My parents have their own apartment here and visit us and help out every six weeks. We also have 3 rather large dogs, Beau a Wiemaraner came with us from the UK, the other two Cassie & Lune are a bit of a mixture from the local rescue centre. They are all very friendly.
All meals are taken with our family.
Normal working hours are Monday to Friday, from 9am until my website and then from 2pm until 4.30pm.
