Last Updated: March 19, 2019

Working family owned vineyard of 16 acres in the beautiful Yarra Valley. Vegetable garden and orchards for personal use. Horses and sheep. Extensive garden.
Wine made on site in the winery.
We spray biodynamic preps and use no inorganic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and only permitted fungicides.
Tasks include vineyard work, as well as work in the winery. Previous experience in the wine industry would be an advantage but not essential
We speak english and some French.
We particularly need assistance in the growing season from September until April.
Hours per day and number of days per week are variable and there may be longer days around vintage with extra days off in lieu. We prefer that you would stay for at least a month.
Accomodation in the main house with separate bathroom that may have to be shared with other guests.
We are ten minutes by car from the nearest town.
Now that we are in vintage there is a lot of work. We will pick the cabernet and shiraz grapes tomorrow and then make the wine. The chardonnay and pinot is already finished fermentation. Our helpX helpers have been amazing!!!
