When I signed up for a Worldpackers experience at a winery, I expected most of the work to revolve around making wine and the restoration of facilities related to the wine. If this is what you want, then this is not the experience for you. The days consisted of grueling physical labor in uncomfortable environments. Virtually no safety equipment was provided despite the fact we were working in the presence of all kinds of dust, sharp and heavy objects, and toxic chemicals. If you were expecting good food, think again. We wete given cheap food we did not want after being asked to write a list.
I am sorry Dylan for your bad feeling but we only made wine when grapes are mature.
I explain you the task before you arrive and you were agree, about the safety equipment, well, you were working with me at the garden and removing the old plating from the kitchen, we did´t use any toxic chemical, and I gave you a safety glasses and a dust mask.
About the food, If 1 of the team is vegan I tried to respect him and cook with vegetables, for your information, here vegatables are usually more expensive than some meat.
Great experience! Beautiful scenery, winery, and very friendly people! Eduardo is always working and will always refill your glass of wine! I recommend this as a stop if you are on your way to Valencia or Madrid (depending on the direction). If you like wine and don't mind working hard, this is the place for you!
Good experience overall! You live in a house with your own room and shared bathroom, living area, and kitchen. No AC so it can get a little warm in the summer but cools off at night. Work differs daily, I did things from painting, cleaning, and assembling boxes. Expect to be put to work though! Eduardo buys groceries and you all make dinner and lunches together. He also will take you to see caves in Requeña. There is a pool at the house too. Not too much to do in the surrounding area. If you're looking for a cultural Spanish experience this isn't what you want but good to see the winery!
We arrived in utiel and Eduardo was already waiting for us on the train stop. We ve started the work the same day and we had an amazing dinner. The place is incredible, Eduardo is so nice and the working is hard but you will wait excited for lunch and dinner :D it was one of best experiences ever. Would totally recommend!
