We are living and working on a 60 acre vineyard with a large wine making facility, cellar door and restaurant that seats up to 90 people, on the property. We require help mostly around our own home rather than the restaurant or the vineyard but opportunities will exist for those with the skills to assist on the vineyard if need arises.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We are both well travelled Australian businessmen who are now semi retired with our focus being building our winery business. We usually find we can have interesting conversations with travellers sharing knowledge and experience of each country and the culture. We have many kangaroos on the property and our business partners also live on the property, so there are plenty of people to talk to and learn from all the time. We travel to Sydney regularly.
The primary purpose of our help is to assist with household chores such as cooking, cleaning, gardening and taking our teenage dog Bertram for walks, or dog sitting him is we are away for the day. We will adapt the jobs to your skills and interests as there is always plenty to do. There maybe also be opportunities to assist in the vineyard depending on the time of year and your skills.
We have a bedroom at the rear of our garage which has its own bathroom, laundry and a single bed. It is next door to the house. While we are open to two people coming it is not ideal in terms of the accommodation available. The room has many books including many about Australia. Food will be shared in the house and cooking shared. We can cater to dietary requirements such as vegan or vegetarian.
We are fifteen minutes from the Canberra Airport, fifteen minutes from Bungendore and Queanbeyan, and 30 minutes from the centre of Canberra and all it has to offer. We are happy to drop helpers off in Canberra for the day and pick you up.
