自然派ワイン、古民家、エネルギー自給…… これらのキーワードにビビッと来た方、ぜひ私たちのところにいらっしゃいませんか?

まずはこちらの動画を!

私たちはシェアリングエコノミーの実践者で、おもに2つの事業を行っています。
ひとつはシェアハウスの運営。築150年の古民家の個室を、農業や田舎暮らしに興味がある人のためのトライアルの場として住んでもらっています。

もうひとつは「シェアヴィンヤード」の運営です。ヴィンヤードとはワイン用ブドウ畑のこと。ひとつの畑を首都圏や地元のワイン好きな人たちと一緒にシェアし、ブドウの苗木を植えるところから始め、ワインにするプロジェクトです。
シェアヴィンヤードのクラブハウス用にもう1軒、近所に古民家を借り、ただいま整備中です。

太陽の力でお風呂を沸かしたり電気を作ったり、空き家や耕作放棄地をみんなで楽しく再利用したり、今ある資源を上手に活かしながら暮らしています。

WWOOFerさんにはシェアヴィンヤードのクラブハウス(古民家)に滞在していただきます。そして、ブドウのお世話や山林整備をお手伝いいただきたいと思っています。

私たちは海外生活が長く、海外の方と異文化交流をするのが好きです。
みなさんの国のこともいろいろ教えてください!

Natural wine (vin nature), Japanese antique house (like “Totoro’s house” called “kominka”), country life in a hilly area, farming, DIY, low carbon emission ...

If these words piqued your interest, why don't you come and visit us in Nagano, Japan?

We have two main projects; a sharehouse and sharing vineyard.

Our 150-year-old antique house at the mountain foot is surrounded by nature and offers a cozy shelter for those who have moved from cities and enjoy the country life and farming.

Our sharing vineyard is the first of its kind in Japan, where a number of wine enthusiasts from different places get together regularly and cultivates grapes for natural wine production.

We manage an additional antique house near the vineyard as a “clubhouse” for the members.

We are committed to the sharing economy and reuse the abandoned old houses and farmlands as key resources for community development and having fun!

We use the solar power for hot water and electricity.

WWOOFer will stay in the extra spaces of antique houses and may share the space with others.

You would participate in the grape cultivation and renovation of antique houses.

We (the host) lived overseas for years and love to interact with foreign visitors in English, Spanish or Tagalog.

We want to know you and your country!
WE ARE ACCEPTING WWOOFers
