Grape harvest in France – Every year at the end of august and beginning of September, French farmers look for seasonal workers. The occasion is the grape harvest period in France, a country famous for its wine production. Seasonal jobs are ideal for outdoor work experience in contact with nature; you can earn some money and meet international people from all over Europe (there are 300,000 seasonal work contracts each year from August to October).
