  • Description

    Description

    Our vineyard in the heart of the Texas Hill Country is looking for help from anyone interested in Wines & Vines! Applicants must be physically fit and be able to lift a minimum of 50 lbs. Vineyard work is farming, so you must be comfortable working on a farm and in extreme conditions, both hot and cold. We have a lot of interesting issues to solve, including Bot Canker, Pierce's Disease, etc.. so it's a perfect place for a person wanting real world experience. As part of your stay will also have the opportunity to help on several of the largest production vineyards in the Texas Hill Country. Large Scale frost protection is also something you will be exposed to, which is something you may not get exposure to at most other vineyards.
