Will Work in Winery for Free in Europe in 2020

SHW member David Ichikawa writes:

…”In 2020, I’m travelling for an indefinite number of months in Europe. If anyone has contacts with a winery that might be interested in free labor (say 15 hours/week for several weeks), that might be a fun way to see an area and their winemaking methods. Spain is my preference because I will be semi-conversational once I resuscitate my Spanish, but other countries would work too.”

If you have any possibilities, please contact David at
