  • Description

    Description

    We are a small independently owned vineyard in the Cotes de Bourg appellation 50 min NW of Bordeaux.

    2019 was our first harvest, 100% hand picked and a very promising vintage. We prioritise quality over quantity, seek to foster environmentally sustainable practices, innovation, and positive cultural exchanges with volunteers from different parts of the world.

    As a volunteer-only host, we do not offer paid work, and cannot propose tasks related to our commercial operations on the workaway platform.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Helping at the Chateau will provide a first-hand insight into the process of wine-making in Bordeaux. We aim to provide the setting for a convivial experience for people from diverse backgrounds to work, share meals, and make the most of their visit to the region

    We hope to host volunteers for various roles in 2023. While staying at a working vineyard, volunteers will have ample opportunities to learn about vineyard practices and the winemaking process on the estate, and the opportunity to explore the region and visit other local wineries

    Examples of the volunteer-led projects we plan to undertake in 2022 are listed below:

    --Vegetable Garden Setup-- [March - April] Plan and prepare grounds for vegetable garden, install trellising and fences as necessary. Expansion of the existing composting facilities to process organic waste from the café and winery

    --Chicken coop construction/installation

    -- House renovation, including light painting and plastering

    --Beehive Installation-- Assess the premises for beehive installation, strategy for honey extraction and modifications to vineyard practices to nurture the bee population. Lay out protocol for eventual “Bee Friendly” certification

    --Art Projects-- Many possibilities, including painting murals in the winery (see the big white concrete walls pictured). All volunteers are encouraged to be creative, leave their mark with a painting, illustration or even the design of a future wine label

    We also welcome your ideas for other projects along these lines. Prospective volunteers should understand the property is still a work in progress. We expect volunteers to be proactive and motivated to leave the property in better shape than they find it

    Hébergement

    The main house at the property is under renovation, and at the moment on-site accommodation consists of a mobile home which has two private twin/double rooms, shower, toilet, kitchen and dining area

    Due to limited accommodations we normally accept no more than 2 or 3 volunteers at any given time, when help is required. During the warmer months (May-October) additional space for camping/campervan parking is available.

    Please note that wi-fi is not available onsite. We recommend visitors arrange their own mobile data plans according to their needs
