    These area has many different cultural variety and they are very good at people relations. They are going to help us about harvesting as well, It 's a very good knowledge to setup wine process from any fruit. We aim to teach these final product prepare.

  • Help


    We need help about collecting cherries and converting them to wine and dried products. Max 5 hours work a day and 5 days working schedule we are planning. In the other remaining time, they can walk on the forest and go to the lake and river for swimming. The harvesting period spends 10 days, we are going to schedule 5 days period for each guest. But after that we need just a little help to prepare wine ferments. It 's the exciting part I guess :)

    We will give some gifts at the end of the harvesting, like wine, olive oil and lots of cherries of course :)
