Picking since 1994'

The story of Apcon

My Story

Allow me to introduce myself!
My name is Lune, 22 years old and I coordinate Apcon. For as long as I can remember, my father has gone every year to pick grapes and come back happy and with great stories. When I was 18 I was allowed to come along for the first time, and since then I can be found in the vineyards every year.

I fell in love with the beautiful surroundings, the people and the picking. That is why I took over my father's Apcon last year and now lovingly help as many people as possible have a unique experience as a picker.

How it all started.

La France 1994′

Almost 30 years ago, as a 20-year old student, my father went grape picking for the first time. From the first moment he loved it! And to this day he still goes grape picking every year, "Relax, work and clear my head".

Many people asked him for contact details of farmers after his stories. The farmers were then, and still are, hardly visible online, so you had to know them to pick. That is why he started Apcon in 1994 and started putting pickers and farmers in touch!

Now we are doing it for you.

Instead of spending days searching online for farmers who are not very active, we now ensure that you are matched with a farmer we have visited and selected who meets all the requirements. 

We provide you with the necessary information to embark on your unique adventure as a picker in the romantic vineyards of France, Spain or Greece without any worries.

However, we would like to warn you.

Disclaimer

After two weeks in a vineyard or a southern orchard, you are exhausted, satisfied and so restless that you probably do not want to go home again; in love with the region or with someone.

Will I see you in France, Spain or Greece this summer?

Love,
Lune
