Zalto Stock Availability 2021


Updated 4 May 2021

for new orders

So customers can understand which shipment their orders are allocated against, we have made the forthcoming shipments available, so from 4 May 2021:

  • new ‘in stock’ orders are allocated against the June/July Zalto shipment and will be dispatched when it arrives
  • new pre-orders from are allocated against August’s shipments

for existing orders and pre-orders

We are preparing for the arrival of our latest Zalto shipment and expect to be dispatching existing orders allocated against this shipment later this week or start of next.

This shipment covers most orders and pre-orders until the middle of April 2021, unless a later pre-order was advised on the product page at the time of ordering.

Why is there limited Zalto stock availability?

Zalto stemware and wine ware are individually mouth blown by a small team of artisans.

During the covid-19 pandemic there has been an increase in Zalto sales as wine drinkers wanting to enjoy the superior flavours using Zalto stemware offers have purchase stemware for use at home.

There are also significant Zalto production constraints. At present the glassblowers are working with a smaller team due to social distancing restrictions.

In normal times, Zalto is able to hold warehouse stock of most models much of the year around. When we want more stemware we simply place and order and receive it several weeks later. At present all Zalto production is fully allocated to Zalto retailers and hospitality venues around the world, so our orders are placed intp a queue awaiting manufacturer, packing and export as and when Zalto is able to fulfil them. We have been ordered well ahead since 2020 as this situation is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Compounding the situation has been the new importation processes following the end of the Brexit transition period.

To make things as clear and transparent as possible, we are making Zalto stock available shipment by shipment. Your order is allocated against a specific shipment and fulfilled when that shipment arrives.

For fairness for all our customers, all orders are shipped on a first ordered, first dispatched basis.

We do have some limited stock available from time to time, so please check the respective products’ page. However because of the current demand, most shipments are pre-sold and we advice customers to pre-order to reserve stock if they want to receive Zalto stemware in 2021.
