Do nothing until you have solid proof. There's no need to go around accusing anyone. Even the mere fact of discussing it with cleaning lady will ruin the relationship. Install hidden cameras. 4k cameras are not expensive.

With a cellar of ~7,500 bottles of German wine the short answer is NO. One of the greatest things about German Riesling is opening it for others. Germany is one of the deepest wine regions in the world. I feel so lucky I love the wines more than any other region.

Re: Favorite Wines You No Longer Buy Due to Pricing

Allemand, Clape and Jamet 2013 was my last vintage, once 2015 pricing went over $150. Admittedly, being 53 and not wanting to plonk down that kind of money for wines that really do need 15 years+ was also a factor. Figeac got too pricey for me, but I did grab 2014 - a vintage that I love - for $80....

2017 Paetra Dry after over 1 month in the refrigerator

I drank the 2017 Paetra dry Riesling in April and forgot it. Placed the cork back in and left it in the refrig. It has been sitting in my refrigerator for over 1 month now. I took a sip and it actually got much better! I don't think I have ever had a wine that lasted this long after being opened.
