  • Description live with my father and my mother in a modern big house in Gavi in the middle of the wineyard .

    I have 2 dogs very sweet perfect for afraid people and 1 cat they live with us in the house, we are family.

    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 too 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. 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. Learning about the production of wine.
    We endeavor to ensure our helpers are treated like family (duties and pleasure) and enjoy the stay here as much as possible.

    In my house helpersa can stay in a room share with other helpers with bathroom.

    Usually i take 3 or 4 helpers. So we are a lot and and you can meet people from another country.

    If I don't have sure days, is very difficult to reserve a place.
