My family took a 2 week trip to Italy in June. After several hectic days in Rome, we were thrilled with the accomodations at San Gimignano Vistas (Croce Di bibbiano). They upgraded our room so we had a 3 bedroom apartment at no extra charge. The first night there was the highlight of our trip with a wine tasting and dinner with the other guests set against the sunset and fabulous views. Magical! Valeria took wonderful care of our every need. We left 3 days later relaxed and ready for the rest of our journey.
We so enjoyed the wine that we decided to order some to enjoy once our trip was over. We were told the wine would arrive shortly after we returned. That was mid June. It is now mid August and still no wine. Of course, the charge was on our credit card by the time we got home, to the tune of $420. We have called, e-mailed and worked through the organization that booked our stay. I did finally receive an e-mail from Fed Ex with an attachment that was supposed to have our tracking #, however the attachment has a virus in it so I can't open it. I just called Fed Ex and they can't help me without a tracking #.
My advice is to stay there and enjoy the charm, hospitality and wine while you're there. But rather than ordering wine to enjoy once you're home, take lots of pictures instead.
