Wine Farm Italy

Hi worldPackers from the world.

👋We have a free spot last minute from sunday 30 June to 28 July...👋

We are micro natural winery that produce wine from the beginning until the end. We have solar panels for our own electricity and solar panel for hot water( when is cloudy is not hot), and some vegetable gardens.
We are an Italian family that loves to be in contact with nature have share the meals break fast (Italian One coffe bread and jam) and work hard ad enjoy the life. We need people on behavior to work hard and good vibes to stay together 😉

We are Italian countryside family, we try to live straight contact with the nature in ecosustainable life. We produce our electricity with electric solar panels and hot water from solar panels in the summer and stove by woods fire in winter and heaters so every energy comes from our property. We produce wine from the ground to the bottle, you can see all the passages to produce a great bottle of wine. We barter the wine with other families in the same area to provide others stuff that we need, We produce wine for our family and local community. The most of the help are in the fields because we try to give less humans impact to nature use our naturals human energy and less machinery so this is really respectfully to the environment but in the same time mean a lot of time under the sun to work hard in the field👨‍🌾. In the winery the process is natural and happens in barrels during the winter in old method with few new technologies.🥂 we run a self sustainable community in the countryside where helpers are offered the opportunity to experience living in the Italian countryside and learning about the culture that exists here. We teach how to speak Italian, cook Italian food and about the local history and of course Learning about the production of wine and take care the plants. our helpers are treated like family (duties and pleasure) and enjoy the stay here as much as possible like a part of the family. please write in the message if you are interested about this. In my house in the same floor of mine, you can stay in a room share with other helpers with bathroom the room, the bathroom is just for us to clean and to provide your toilet paper, so treat it well, remember to keep clean and check if the shower drain well . We use solar panel for hot water in winter there are not problem but In late spring and summer we use only solar hot shower so in cloudy days is not hot... Thinking about when you apply here The food is included and we have a lunch, dinner,breakfast, together usually my mother cooking but she need someone to wash the dishes, pams and fire so after dinner one or two have to wash keep clean the kitchen. My father make bread and pasta fresca so you can help him and learning. If you have allergies (almost grass and pollen ) is better that you take with you yours pills because we live in countryside and it dusty and green You need to bring with you : clothes to brake and dirty, hat, confortable shoes and gloves with robber hand easy plastic boots(better in autumn and winter) . if is possible bed sheets for normal single bed otherwise we give you 😉. If is your first time farming and live in the country side there is no problem, all the people can learn how to do it, you need only hard motivation 😉. I'm a good teacher, very patience and i can explain the natural miracle that produce wine. we have some spare clothes to give you but not always available ,better bring your clothes to work because they run out soon and we have problem about the size. I'm sure all the people can learn how to do it, but you need to be motivated the days are repeating when there is the time, this is the plant need. We try to change job but sometimes is impossible 🤷‍♂️. Is very important that you think about the job and focus on the activity, is not the right place for open eyes dreamer, kind of artists, philosophers, aspiring models, aspiring actors, Instagram blogger, macho men, choosy people, lazy people. is a place for brainy and laborious people, it is physically demanding . This is the best gym ever if you are full of energy and hardworking, so every motivated person is welcome! We work real 5 hours and start when we start to work in the field If you did already some countryside activities, gardening, vegetables gardening and you like to be outdoor. Write It in your requests. Please if you looking for a place to pass the time, and you are not interested at all about farming and wine and you just count the time during the work wait for it to pass ,doesn't send me a request, will be waist of my and your time. we need to take care the wines plants put inside the wires the stemps, cut femminile, cut lower shouts,Replace death plants, plant trees and veggy, build the fence around the field against the deers, dig, Make well, cut the leaves, make and fix around the house. We have 3 rooms for volunteers and we share the meals lunch and dinner together, you can live as a family here and learn about wine. Usually we work in the morning or in the afternoon. I try to give the weekend off so like this work in the morning Friday and Monday afternoon so you can travel around the City Milano Genova Torino, cinque terre , Firenze Pisa, Bologna Padova and Venice If the week is too rain we can work in the weekend and have the day off during the week, I don't like it but sometimes is necessary, anyway after 5 days of work three are always 2 day off.

The experience on the farm was a great learning experience since I hadn't had a rural experience, it helped me connect with nature and learn much more closely about the entire grape process. Lorenzo is a great host who from the beginning explains the tasks you must perform, the stay is very good, in addition to the fact that the food is delicious, you will learn about the Italian culture. Lorenzo, Peter and Laura are a wonderful family that will make you feel at home. If you are a dedicated person, hard worker, this will be a wonderful experience.

My stay with Lorenzo, Laura and Peter was one of the best experiences I’ve had, the fields are beautiful and big, the opportunity to get in touch with the nature is amazing, the work can get a bit difficult sometimes and you need to make a physic effort, but it totally worth it, the lunch and dinner are delicious and with the other volunteers, Lorenzo and his family you can really feel like you’re at home :)) .

My first time volunteering at the vineyard was amazing. Lorenzo, Peter and Laura are very friendly and it feels like home. I met great people and we used to cook some traditional dishes together. Apart from learning more about permaculture practices and Italian culture, my Italian also got better.
Although the work in the vineyard is difficult, there is always delicious food and fun :) If you're willing to learn about wine and like country living, I highly recommend it!

Muy linda experiencia, el trabajo es un poco duro por el hecho de que se trabaja todo el tiempo bajo el sol, pero más allá de eso el trato es muy ameno al igual que las instalaciones.. se trata de trabajar durante la semana para tener el fin de semana libre como para poder recorrer, lo cual está bueno ya que se encuentra muy cercano a Génova y siempre están dispuestos a llevarte y traerte a la estación de tren más cercana.

Fue una gran experiencia en la finca de Lorenzo, Peter y Laura. Me senti muy comodo desde el primero al ultimo día. El ambiente es super agradable, el lugar hermoso y puedes generar buenos vinculos tanto con ellos como con los demas voluntarios. Nada mas hay que tener en cuenta que las tareas pueden ser duras y cansadoras. Es cuestion de poner actitud y ganas de trabajar. Tambien debes estar preparado que no siempre tendrás disponible el agua caliente para bañarte porque el sistema funciona algunas horas del dia. Teniendo en cuenta eso, se disfruta todo.
