Hi, in our country house we take care of the small vineyard and olive trees, produce wine and extra virgin olive oil. We live in a place full of history of art and we’d love to show it to you in exchange for your help. Join us!
Volunteer in Chianti, Italy – requirements and tasks
The tasks depend on when you come to visit us. We try to achieve an eco-compatible balance of sustenance, we want to be respectful of the rules of nature.
The seasonal cycle of activities begins in spring when we sow and take care of the gardens, vineyards and olive groves. During summer we collect fruits and vegetables and prepade food preserves for winter. We also prepare wood. Autumn is dominated by the grape harvest first and then the olive harvest.All the wine and oil production processes take place in winter, with the arrival of cold weather.
We will ask you to help us with the above activities for around 25 hours / week.
Volunteer in Chianti, Italy – what we offer
We are a family that lives in a country house in the heart of Chianti, a twenty minutes drive from Siena and just 50 km from Florence. You can explore this beautiful area in your free time. Camilla (the host) is a licensed tour guide, Alberto is a sculptor. Both have an excellent knowledge of the culture and tradition of the area – you’ll be free to chat with us 🙂
We produce Chianti wine and extra virgin olive oil for family use. We love good food which we will share with you. You will get a room for yourself.
