  • Description

    Description

    We are currently looking for honest, down to earth, positive, genuine, energetic, salt of the earth kind of people that are willing to get their hands dirty and become part of our journey. We have 20 acres of vines planted in the heart of the Texas Hill Country on 50 acres of land, and 5 years worth of wine aging in barrels in our cellar. We have 4 dogs, 1 cat, geese, chickens and sometimes sheep.

    Dan still has to work for his IT company. He spends his days bouncing back and forth from the vineyard, from conference calls to computer issues. Jeanie handles all the office and "behind the scenes" tasks for the vineyard and winery. Our daughter lives in Japan and teaches English. Our son is in college and currently helping us in the vineyard and winery.

    We have two 30 foot travel trailers on the vineyard (including a queen size bed with a TV), full kitchen, bathroom w/ shower & tub. We could have up to 8 helpers at a time and you would need to be comfortable sharing the trailer.

    Activities include but are not limited to...Pruning, tucking vines, applying bird netting, checking & repairing drip-lines, walking the vineyard looking for any disease issues, trellis repair, weed control, removing bird netting, harvesting grapes, processing grapes, caring for and working with the wine, etc...

    On your time off you would be able to tour the town, swim/kayak the river, hike, visit neighboring tourist town, relax at the wine bar, sing karaoke at the club and more.

    The closest airport is San Antonio or Austin. Most people will take the bus to Mason and we will pick you up at the bus stop.

    We live in a small Texas town with some of the nicest people you will ever meet. This sweet town has a wealth of history and historical sites, river and areas to hike, as well as art and music culture. Our vineyard is 10 miles outside of town in the beautiful hill country passing farms along the way. With the most beautiful sunsets!

    You would be able to learn anything and everything it takes to grow quality grapes in the Texas Hill Country that is taking
    place during the season at the time you are here.

    We have 1-2 full-time employees that live on the property and we hire others for time sensitive activities like final pruning and harvest. There is a lot of opportunity to live and work with people from Texas and all other areas of the world.

    We have had ONLY 5 star “glowing” reviews. Helpers have said it is the “best help/stay experience they have ever encountered.” Describing us as “honest, generous, hard working, patient, great teachers, good role models, and an inspiration.” We have even had multiple helpers love Mason so much the STAYED!

    NOTE: Due to US labor laws we can only accept people with Green Cards, or have US Citizenship. Unfortunately these new US labor laws have forced us to be less like an exchange and more like a business, even though we have not made any money yet! You will be required to fill out Form I-9 () upon arrival, if you cannot provide proper documentation as documented on page 4 of the I-9 form, please do not apply, we can not accept you. We pay minimum wage to workawayers, and will expect at least eight hrs of help per day with two days off per week. No overtime is allowed. We also provide free accommodations. (See details under Accommodations) We will go shopping for you when we shop for food each week, but the food is not something we can afford to pay for.

    We will do a background check.
