Zalto Stock Availability 2021

Why the most desirable stemware is now most sought after

Updated 31 August 2021

for new orders

Zalto has temporarily closed its factory order book for further orders until it fulfils current orders, so we have closed pre-ordering today for the time being.

From today:

  • Some items are now available for immediate dispatch, these are marked ‘in stock’
  • We cannot part-ship Zalto orders, so please consider placing multiple orders if your total order includes Zalto models that will be fulfilled across multiple inbound shipments.

for existing orders and pre-orders

We have been receiving shipments from Zalto and have been working through dispatching existing customer pre-orders, by order date.

Existing pre-orders are being dispatched to customers when the respective inbound shipments arrive in September, October & November.

There have been additional production delays affecting Universal stemware. The first shipment containing Universals will now arrive in September 2021.

These are subject to change so we update this page frequently.

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. The glassblowers have been working with 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 situation has been the new importation processes following the end of the Brexit transition period.

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 2021.
