Q&A with Team Vinoteca
How did Vinoteca handle lockdown, physically, mentally, and spiritually?
It was tough. One of the hardest things was going from thinking the worst that could happen would be we’d lose about half of our customers for a few weeks to realising that we, along with all other bars, restaurants and cafés would have to close for a few months. Once in lockdown we put people first and it really helped. No one could doubt the severity of the situation, but by keeping in close contact with our staff and customers we found that it was much easier to go through the unique experience together. Stronger together I think the saying goes, and it is so true.
What did you learn about your customers?
That they are resourceful, hardy and optimistic, even in extreme circumstances. And that they are loyal, which is humbling.
What is on the horizon for Vinoteca?
We will emerge even better and stronger, making sure that we continue to offer the most exciting wines and seasonal food in the most friendly, welcoming and safe environment.
