Dear sir,
I am interested in working in vineyards, I learn really fast, and grew up around farms, I am currently in Europe, and would love to work at the vineyards for a serious length of time, 3 years at the least, I love France and it,s history especially that of Champange and Lorraine. I am 22 years old, and in great phisical shape, I used to work construction, and weather doesn't bother me. Please contact me at [email protected], so I could recieve more information about possible long term employment. I am hard working, and dedicated to doing the best work I can. I await your response. I do not speak French, but am eager to learn. Sincerely, a wine lover, Kevin

Dear Mr. Roy,

My great grandfather left Alsace Lorraine in late 1893. He arrived at Ellis Island, U.S.A. in February 1894. He returned to France in 1897 when his father died and after the funeral returned to the U.S.A. with his sister. His name was Michael L de Julien. I have been told that in France his name was Michael Laurence Julien. His sister's name was Marie Julien. I do not know their father's name but he lived in the Alsace area and either owned or worked a vineyard. So you know any of the historical legends of the peoples of that area that you could share with me. When I look up the vineyards, I see my maiden name (Julien) but I am not sure why. The only de Juliens I can find in United States currently ar my own family and I am trying to figure out if I have relatives in France or if Julien was just a very common name from way back then. I hope you can help me to piece things together.

Hi there, I was just wondering if you take people on for work all year round? I would love to come and live in France for a time to improve my french and learn all about wine-making and it's culture.
I'm from a farm in Scotland so am very used to all sorts of weather and love being outside.
Thanks for your time, Ailidh

Hi Belinda
What you need to know is that many vignerons would be happy to hire you when they need someone in the vineyard for various tasks including the harvest.
_You need a valid work visa or the vignerons would risk big fines if they hired someone without one.
_If you can lawfully work in France, then don't hesitate to call the estates in advance : use Skypeout, which is a very affordable way to call overseas if you call from the other side of the world.
_In many cases you'll have to find your own accomodation for the night. When the vigneron will know you better, he/she may find a room or some place for you to stay. The estates used to let the harvesters sleep in their facilities, but some stupid law edicted a few years ago set quasi-hotel-norms for the harvesters quarters and most vignerons stopped right away to house them (typically french counterproductive laws...).

I see that you have many postings from people looking to work on your farm. I am equally as enthusiastic and would love to help. Do you offer any positions or know of any contacts?
Thank You,
