The Experience

We are a little Winery in the romantic Middelrhine and are looking for help in the Windrads al over they year for different works and especially during the harvest. By the way we are restoring our Winery witch is very big and we need always a hand there for different works. If you are interested to learn about wine and help us to get our Place back to it like it was contact us. Sometimes you can help out also in the Cellar but not always.

Truly a beautiful place! I felt very welcomed here, great community of people. There is an apartment just for the workers which was nice. The work can be long and hard but the view was incredible! Melanie and her family were lovely :)

My experience was better than I expected :) I extended my stay from two weeks to a month. The vineyard is mystical, incredible landscapes in a cozy village. The people who work in it are the best. A beautiful family was formed with whom I shared incredible stories in the evenings of roasts and nights of bonfires, drinking good wine in the terrace of the house.
The work is sometimes hard, but the effort is worth it. Totally recommended.

I spend 5 weeks here in Ardesia weingut, the whole experiencie has been a lot of learning, I must say the the work is hard but you really get to learn and get involve in the wine world, the accomodation is fantastic and the town is beatiful I spend much of my days running by the side of the Rhein river.

Working at Weingut Ardesia was a fantastic experience! It was hard work but very rewarding at the end of the day getting to know and spend time with the other workers and Melanie and Lorenzo’s lovely family. Expect to work closer to 6-8 hours a day, but the scenery and comaraderie makes it well worth it. Bacharach is a beautiful town, and we even got to have a wine tasting at the end of our stay to try the various wines they have been working on. Would definitely recommend.

About the host

We are in the most romantic area on the Middelrhine with a lot of Castels and a lot to see. Your winery is still very small but we like to houst people and we like to show you in the different times of the year what you need to do to get a perfect wine. Only to now the picking is not always at the same days we starting around 25 of September until the End of October but we do not pick the complete period... this depends on the weather.
