    Description

    We have space from 11 September .
    sorry guys but i received a lot of request and take long chose someone and organize the calendar, sorry for the late answer.🙏

    For COVID restrictions is not possible host people that doesn't have Eu passport, (except Liechtenstein
    swiss,Norway, Irland, Iceland, USA, Canada,Mexico, Israel, Australian, new Zealand and South Africa),



    I'm Lorenzo i'm 31
    I live with my father and my mother in a modern big house in the middle of the wineyard .

    I have 2 dogs very sweet perfect for afraid people and 1 cat they live with us in the house, we are family.

    We are Italian countryside family, we try to live straight contact with the nature in ecosustainable life. We produce our electricity with electric solar panels and hot water from solar panels in the summer and stove by woods fire in winter and heaters so every energy comes from our property.
    We produce wine too from the ground to the bottle, you can see all the passages to produce a great bottle of wine. We barter the wine with other families in the same area to provide others stuff that we need,
    We produce wine for our family and local community.

    The most of the help are in the fields because we try to give less humans impact to nature use our naturals human energy and less machinery. In the winery the process is natural and happens in barrels during the winter in old method with few new technologies.

    As far as our workaway is concerned, we run a self sustainable community in the countryside where helpers are offered the opportunity to experience living in the Italian countryside and learning about the culture that exists here. We teach how to speak Italian, cook Italian food and about the local history. Learning about the production of wine is just one part of the experience we offer, it isn't the sole purpose of stay here. We endeavor to ensure our workeraway are treated like family (duties and pleasure) and enjoy the stay here as much as possible. please write in the message if you are interested about this or are you looking for a just a job.

    we can NOT host people for the process of RECONOGNITION OF ITALIAN CITIZENSHIP, we try once and was a nightmare this is not a right place for that sorry.

    In my house, workeraway can stay in a room share with other workersaway with bathroom.

    Usually i take 3 or 4 workersaway. So we are a lot and and you can meet people from another country.

    For wage 8 euro hours, we need to organise about that face to face depend about the hours, experience, skill, time; the food, accommodation, lunch and dinner breakfast are included.
    about Visa and permission usually is sure for EU citizens for others country depend which country is and if there is a agreement with that country. The minimum age is over 18 old.


    Usually I answer by workway email After my answer, It s very important that you confirm your period with an other workaway email. A lot of people after my first answer by workaway disappear.... If I don't have sure days, is very difficult to reserve a place.

    Sorry sorry but I can't host vegan or vegetarian because we are a lot of people and my mother cook all the dishes in the same time. in the italian dishes there are a part of meat, it is our tradition.

    The food is included and we have a lunch, dinner,breakfast, together usually my mother cooking but she need someone to wash the dishes, pams and fire .

    If you have allergies (almost grass and pollen ) is better that you take with you yours pills.

    You need to bring with you : clothes to brake and dirty, hat, confortable shoes and gloves with robber hand easy plastic boots(better in autumn and winter) . if is possible bed sheets.
