About Blue Mountain Trail Vineyard:
Sustainably farmed wine grape vineyard in the Davis Mountains of west Texas, about 25 miles north of Marfa and 30 miles from the Amtrak station in Alpine. We have beds for five or six people in a communal sleeping space in the upstairs area of an insulated metal building, with kitchen, bathroom and living space downstairs. At 5400ft (1650M) elevation, our winters are cold but the summers are mostly mild, with warm days and cool nights. The temperatures here rarely exceed 92F (33C).
While I am looking for help most of the year, spring and fall are the busiest times, and sometimes we have a pretty good crowd here for pruning, planting and harvesting. If you're interested in learning about viticulture and wine making, this is your place. I'm still learning about those things too.

I'm also looking for help with some alternative building projects, especially putting up a straw bale barrel room
