If you would like to help a natural winemaker during the harvest season, now is your chance. Below, we have put together some information about some of the different winemakers that need help. Happy harvesting!
Chateau del Ranq :
Château del Ranq, 34270 Claret, France
Bring your secateurs and good vibes, here we go again for another harvest at Mas del Ranq! We plan to start around the end of August (the start date is still very unclear because of the drought) for a period of about 3 weeks.
We start the day at 7am, at sunrise, and until 3:30pm max. We stop for a break and snack around 10am: homemade terrine, cheese, bread, jam, coffee, wine… a little water too! In the evening, we all eat together. Meals are provided by our chef: Hugues!
Required qualities: punctuality, motivation and a good mood. For the best organisation, we would really appreciate people that can stay until the end of the harvest!
We look forward to seeing you! If you wish to participate, please send us an email: [email protected]
See you soon! Laure and Seb
JP et Peggy Buronfosse:

Winegrowers in the Jura
We are looking for grape-pickers beginning the week of August 22nd, and for the following 3 weeks.
Payment: SMIC ( French minimum wage) + lunch. Possibility of accommodation in a dormitory or tent, and a kitchen available for the evenings.
by mail [email protected] Peggy 06 66 27 38 00 + SMS or voice message
Jean- Pascal 06 77 16 95 25 + SMS or Whats App
We will study all offers to help us for a few days, or weeks…
P’tit Max, Guy Breton:
252 Rue Pasteur, 69910 Villié-Morgon, France
A small estate (Guy Breton / p’ti Max) in Villié Morgon is looking for staff for the 2022 harvest, which will start on 25 August (give or take a couple of days), for a fortnight’s harvest (give or take a few glasses).
We still have 8 to 10 places available.
A snack is offered in the morning, and lunch will be prepared by our international chef Rico, a great chef if you rub him the right way, and autonomy in the evening.
Shower, toilet, washing machine and swimming pool (if you are well behaved) is available at the domain. Plus unlimited beer and wine taps (not cut with water!!!) if everyone works hard!
All amenities available in the village (200m from the domain): bank, tobacco shop, post office, grocery shop, bakery, butcher’s shop, bar, bar, bar.
A plot of land is available 1km from the domain, for trucks, Igloos, tents, yurts, teepees, caravans, I don’t mind, there is no accommodation possible on the domain. A shuttle will be available in the morning, and for the laziest in the evening, otherwise it’s a 10 minute walk, or a 20min drunken walk (getting some fresh air will do you good). This isn’t our home, another domain is lending us the land, so it goes without saying that you have to respect the place and take care of your dogs! Three dogs per person will probably be unmanageable.
The hours will depend on the weather, we only work in the morning if it’s too hot, otherwise all day.
Beginners accepted, if they come with a good spirit! Required qualities: good vibes, good mood, hardworking, music is a plus, team spirit is imperative. So: if you are motivated, if you are ready to give it all you’ve got and more! If you are NOT a bad drinker, if you want to cut and carry nice grapes, drink really good wine and make good friends…
And if you’re a girl it’s even better because we lack oestrogen! Contact me by email for more info [email protected]
