Hello! We are Valentina and Davide, a young family based in Roero, a wonderful countryside area in the South of Piedmont.
Davide works in his family winery, and me, I’m a designer focused on the revaluation of local materials.
As a family-life project, one year ago we started to fix with our hands an old family house by the vineyard, with a particular attention to the local environment and the original building. We are happy to welcome everyone who want to get his hands dirty and share with us time, experiences, stories, books, and of course a glass of Roero wines!
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
All the activities in the house aim to improve our knowledges and experiences in different fields. In some cases we call experts to teach us crafts or techniques. If you desire you will be introduced to our winery world and we will share with you our experience on Roero wines. You will have the possibility to experience a familiar and authentic atmosphere immerse in the nature.
We will provide you lunch at the winery (1 km from the house), accommodation.
Me and Davide we need we are organizing our house as a community hub for our friends. We are planning talks and craft courses (e.g making a oven in the garden). But before we need help for some works in the garden.
Firstly we need to tidy up the garden and the , from removing necessary vegetations to build a proper henhouse for our animals (chickens, gooses and dog). And also inside the house we still need help to clean and renovate the old cellar!
Following the philosophy of our hub everything will be done sharing and implementing knowledge and experience. Of course you should be happy to stay outside also for most of the day and make your hand dirty! A familiar and authentic atmosphere will welcome you!
