..We are an owner operated "sustainably accredited" busy working vineyard offering great accommodation in exchange for work experience on a vineyard.If you prefer to be independent in your campervan work hours are negotiable!..
.

..The rows of grapes are 600metres long so lots of walking and bending involved.The job is quite physical and repetitive and you do need to be fit,sporty,quick,have a country background and not mind working while it is hot ..
EMAIL US WITH your references,previous work history,dietary habits,interests,sports and fitness level and we will reply quickly!!Might suit a single fit male or two who like working outdoors.

.
An interest or experience in horticulture,gardening,wines, farming, nature and a love of the outdoors is needed as is a "fun,can do" work attitude.

We ask for 2-3 hours real work per night accommodated(flexible) in exchange for good accommodation in a large comfortable and well furnished room.The room has shower/laundry attached and own outside entrance.

You need to cook(we have a great kitchen) and provide your own food !Sometimes we will cook a "kiwi" bbq.

It is best to be independent and have a vehicle as we are 15 minutes from town .Usually stays are for one week but negotiable on compatibility etc.

We are a friendly hardworking couple with adult family(6) all independent and left home.We will share our knowledge of grapegrowing, horticulture, wines. local travel tips etc and enjoy a good conversation over an evening meal.

Our interests include hearing about your country, all sports,gardening, reading, TV, family, travel, hosting, music and current affairs.

We live on a no exit road of mainly vineyards and you would need to enjoy the very QUIET country life.

Things to do include country walks,swim in our pool cycling(bikes available),visit beaches,city,East coast attractions....

Nearby is Manutuke village, Millton organic winery, Matawhero winery,Wrights winery,Rere rockslide, Eastwood Hill and a 9hole golf course.
