    We are looking for (2 / couple, one male as some strength is needed) to help with the estate management and working on the vines, our vegetable and fruit garden. Some help in the house with cleaning and housekeeping duties. You will normally eat with us and our guests in the evenings.

    Chain saw /strimmer/ weedwacking knowledge would be useful, plenty of tree /logging work to do. An understanding on how to prune fruit and Olive trees would be a great asset in the spring

    The work is ongoing throughout the year.

    We have a small traditional working vineyard. We have 3 vineyards with a total of just over 6000 vines with 4 varieties of red grapes. (1.4 ha) In the vineyards you will learn how we tend the vines and also be involved in Wine tasting, blending the varieties and then bottling.
    Diverse things like Tractor driving (cutting the grass in the fields) to learning how we smoke foods in our traditional whole oak smoke house.

    You will have opportunities to cook (this is optional but in the past we have had Workawayers enjoying the fun making new menus from ideas brought with them) and learn the making of many local dishes as well as jams and chutneys.

    You will often go off with one of us when we go to shop for provisions.

    Non smokers only please
