Yesterday we come back from our holiday in Sandanski.
We visit Melnik and the Museum of wine (Litova house). They decorated the wine cellar very nice but what we did not like was, that at the entrance there was no information that there is entrance fee.
We bought 2 bottles of wine, and when we wanted to pay for the vine, the woman that work there, told us:”Oh sorry, I forgot to charge the entrance fee”, and on the 2 small paper s on which was written Museum etc.… she with the pen wrote the number 3, and she told us:” Here, each entrance fee is 3 leva, so you have to pay 6 leva for the entrance”.
It is not about the 6 leva, but we felt tricked!!.
It should be information at the entrance..that the fee is 3 leva!!
Then we bought the 2 bottles of wine, and she closed them and sailed with the vax… but when we come home and I put them in the horizontal position where we are keeping all our vines, we noticed that the vine start to leak from the bottle..
Either the cork is bad quality or they put not enough vax..but now I am afraid that the vine will be spoiled..
My intentions with this post are very good… because with small tricks..they spoiled one experience and something that should be a good memory turned into disappointment..
