Note: we are currently accepting volunteers for harvesting during This summer , please contact us.
Hi, my name is Pierre, a southern France organic and biodynamic wine maker. I live in a quiet village not far from the sea with my mum, sister and nephew.
We have 5 hectares of vineyard and 40 olives trees on our property. We also have a cow and chickens.
I am a funny guy and I am really athletic. Most afternoons I go rock climbing or surfing or mountain biking.
The work depends on the time of year - harvesting the grapes and pressing them in August or September; washing wine tanks; pruning the vines over the winter; digging up invasive blackberries throughout the year; bottling and labeling the wine in the summer; preparing orders and shipments, etc. We do many different types of projects and work based on what needs to be done or what comes up - on the property, in the garden, and in the vineyard. Please note that depending on the time of year and work, the tasks we do can be physically demanding.
We have hosted many friends and volunteers over the years. We welcome people who:
-are ready to work outdoors and help out with daily activities;
-are easy going and flexible;
-are interested in learning about our lifestyle here and in sharing their own experiences;
-like sports or outdoor activities.
Helpers may stay in a bedroom in my house, or camp, or stay in their van/camping car. We eat together.
Feel free to ask any questions.
