    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    You'll get to try our wines from previous years, as well as Bulgarian (or Serbian wines). You will learn about the whole wine-making cycle, the fermentation process, local grape variaties and various wine terms.
    You’ll meet our fellow villagers (both Bulgarian and foreing) and experience the local folklore.
    We like long dinners, good conversations, comparing cultural experiences, discussing world and national politics and recent history.

    The wine-making phase in October involves tapping the new/young wine after the initial fermentation, and moving in into new barrels. Last year’s wine will need to bottled or stored into different containers.

    There is some gardening work like clearing the old wine sticks and some general vegetation control/clearance in the plots, getting ready for the winter.

    If the weather is warm, we’ll be doing some other work outside, like sorting different building materials that can be re-used, fixing fences, cutting tree branches, grinding branches (with a machine) and making woodchips, landscaping and flower gardens, etc.
    If the weather is bad, we can so some painting inside.
    Let us know if you are extra handy with power tools or have carpenting,etc experience, and we’ll easily find you a project.

    Comfortable metal-frames beds. Inside toilet and shower, fridge and a oven/stove inside the house. Please let us know if you have special accommodation preferences (e.g. prefer not to share a room with others).

    Internet access in the house/s can be limited (we have a mobile internet solution, which we could lend you, but the mobile cover in the village varies a lot, so connection is not stable). You can always use the internet in/around our house during the day hours/early evening.

    Joint dining (lunch/dinner) at our house, as a rule. Breakfast could be at our house, or separately (we’ll provide the food supply). Some of the dinners could be with some of the other villagers. We are meat-lovers ourselves, but if you have special preferences, we’ll make sure to provide other choices.

    The village is on the Danube, so visiting the beach of walking along the river bank is a nice past-time.
    There are two shops in the village. It is possible to buy from the villagers eggs from free-range chickens and goat/sheep cheese, as well as some seasonal vegetables.

    On your days off, you could plan excursions in the area.
    The distance to the Serbian boarder is only 12 km, and 25 km to Negotin, which the closest provincial town on the Serbian side.

    Vidin, which the district town on the Bulgarian side (30km from the village), offers several sightseeing options, including the Baba Vida Fortress and the Konaka town museum. There is a nice town garden/alleys along the river, with restaurants (including fish restaurants on the water).
    We go often to Vidin for shopping or eating out, so we could definitely give you a lift for free, if you are flexible with working around our schedule. Otherwise there is a bus line (not too often) or taxis.
    A bit longer distance but definitely worth visiting in the Vidin distrikt are Belogradchik (small town surrounded by stone formations and a breathtaking 360˚ view from the medieval castle) and the Magura Cave.
