Filarole is member of the international association Wwoof proposing experiences in organic agriculture and rural world. You can experience in our farm and meet old vines and a beautiful valley in Emilia Romagna.
In these first years of working with old vineyards we have started to experience and now we feel the time has come to start sharing our discoveries with those who want to take a piece of road with us. After observing the activities of the Wwoof association from the outside, we decided to join as a host and open up to those who think it may be interesting to experience this way of doing agriculture.
The old vineyards require a lot of observation and a lot of manual work, each plant is different from the other and requires a lot of attention. They have taught us a lot in this time.
The territory of Val Tidone, although not far from Milan, is little known but very beautiful. Living an experience here will also allow you to get to know the villages, the paths in the woods and natural beauties as well as historic monuments.
