Response from Alessandro:

Dear Collin, thank you for your feedback. The kitchen cupboard was fixed as soon as you brought it to our attention and all kitchen vintage plates and cutlery replaced. Prior guests requested them to be more varied and authentic! You could not see the immediate improvements as when you got back we had already had to move you as with cleaners waiting. I am personally always in charge of guests, and I can be reached at the winery office or on my mobile at all times. Harvesting takes place five days a year and my fiancée kindly stepped in for me then. I am very sorry if you tried to reach us without success. We did not receive any voice message or email. This said, we are not a hotel with a full time concierge as we strive to keep an increasingly rarer authentic, beautiful, familiar style.
