First Guests

We had our first guests at Reale Leone last weekend. Our fellow winery employees were on vacation. My husband and I manned the winery alone, even with guests coming into the “Crush Pad” and Reale Leone. We wanted everything to be perfect for them. They were our first guests to stay there since we got it finished.

It had been a long week. In between fixing tech problems we also were trying to make sure we had everything in place at Reale Leone. Everything was clean, enough toilet paper, towels, etc. We triple checked everything. Finally we put the welcome letter and the wine and wine glasses in the room, it was ready to go.

We met the two couples that were going to stay, but not before we met several other couples that wanted to see Reale Leone for themselves. Maybe with a couple more rounds, I would remember anything else that needed to be in the rooms.

Here are some final photos of how the place looked to our first guests…
