Pamela Cresci: With a degree in business management, Pamela oversees all the administrative and logistical duties.
Gabriella Gianini and Katrin Pfeifer: Both are long-time residents of Castagneto, even if Gabriella hailed from Switzerland and Katrin from Germany. Polyglot lovers of wine, they preside over visitor services, assisting our guests to get to know Guado al Melo, in Italian, English, and German.
