We are a family owned vineyard based in the famous Bordeaux area in south western France, who make award winning wine every year!

This year we will open a bed and breakfast with 5 rooms at the vineyard. It means that we will have paying guest staying, but not in the same house as our helper. We expect you to be friendly and polite with our guests and staff.

We are looking for a trustful, responsible and positive person to help on a lot of different jobs on the vineyard, such as helping the winemaker, gardening, painting, cleaning, labeling the bottles and packing wine for customers.

We can offer an annex where you will have your own bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. Furthermore you will have access to WI-FI. We live in a seperate house and we will only eat together at special occassions.

We want you to be a part of the everyday on the vineyard and you will learn a lot about how everything works here. We speak fluent English, but some of the workers and a lot of the people that comes here during the week only speaks French. It is ok if you don't speak French, the most important thing is that you have a good personality.

Your duties will be very different and you should expect to work approximately 6 hours per day starting at 8.00 from Monday to Friday and with a 1 hour lunch break. Some days there will be more or less work, so it is important that you are flexible.

We have no car available on the vineyard, and the bus to Bordeaux is only 2/3 times a day. The closest supermarket is 6 km away. But the area is breathtaking with all the vineyards, big castles and small beautiful towns. Bordeaux is only 35 km away - so besides relaxing at the pool (if we have no guests) or enjoying the landscape, there is things to do in the evening and the weekends. But be prepared to go back to basics and bring a good book or other things to entertain yourself.

The minimum length of your stay is 1 month, and we have a 2 weeks trial period, where we can get to know each other.

If you are interested we would like you to send us some information about yourself, your interests and attitude. What you have been doing so far, and why you would like to come here. Once this has been validated, we can set up a skype conversation

We are looking forward to hearing from you!! :-)
