Zalto Stock Availability 2023-24

Why the most desirable stemware is now most sought after

for new orders

New in stock orders are dispatched immediately. Pre-orders are allocated against the forthcoming Zalto shipments. The current stock status is displayed for each product when ordering.

Please note that we are unable to part-ship Zalto pre-orders. Please consider placing multiple orders if your order would mix in-stock and/or pre-ordered stems across multiple inbound shipments.

Based on the latest production information from Zalto, we anticipate pre-ordering to be necessary for key models into 2024.

for existing pre-orders

The glass blowers have increase production over recent months and Zalto has shipped what they can, when they can. There is still a significant backlog of production orders. We are currently received purchase orders placed with Zalto around 9 – 12 months ago. The typical customer pre-order lead-time is now three months.

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. As each Zalto stem is individual mouth blown, the glassblowers had been working as a smaller team due to covid restrictions. This has made it challenging for Zalto to simultaneously catch up on existing factory orders, meet current demand and re-build their stockholding.

At present all Zalto production is fully allocated to Zalto retailers and hospitality venues around the world, so our various orders are placed into a queue awaiting production, packing and export as and when Zalto is able to fulfil them. We have been ordering well ahead since 2020 as this situation is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Compounding the already challenging situation is Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, which impacts gas supplies for the glass furnaces.

In short, demand is massively outstripping supply. The most desirable stemware is now most sought after.

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 Zalto stock available, so please check the respective products’ page for details. However because of the current demand, most shipments are pre-sold and we advise customers to pre-order to reserve stock if they want to receive Zalto stemware in 2023.
