We are a family owned winery and vineyard in the yea valley and would need helpers to help with general vineyard and farm related work in exchange for accommodation.This is a Guest House only and no meals are provided, however the township of Yea is nearby and has every thing including supermarket, bakeries etc. The fully self contained house on the property is available on a 1 week or fortnight basis depending on the needs of the persons wishing to help out. It is a beautiful rural setting and we have had people from France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Holland staying with us in the past and the cultural exchange has been wonderful. The busy times for us start mid January & include a variety of vineyard jobs right through to harvest (in March & April). this is our "Vintage" & is the when the years wine is made.We hold two major events during the year, the "Longest Tasting" is in November and our "Harvest Picnic" in May . We expect Vintage 2018 to be another great year this year so it will be an early start to the season and a busy time for us all, so we are happy to be involved in this help exchange to meet helpers from different nationalities and for them to experience Australian farm life & wine life. Duties are varied and may include helping out with functions and events and also winery work. During February there is plenty to do around the vineyard as the grapes ripen towards picking in March and April, vintage will then be in full swing until May when all the wines are completed and put away in preparation for winter.
