LIBERTY LAKE, Wash.– The supply chain issues pestering the nation are triggering a shortage of just about anything and whatever.
That includes bottle as well as barrels.
Liberty Lakes White wine Cellars owner Mark Lathrop stated it’s made it hard for them to intend in advance. The wines they’re squaring away currently will certainly be offered in 2024.
“You try to prepare ahead of time as long as feasible. We understand what we need,” Lathrop claimed.
He’s awaiting bottles as well as barrels that are stuck on delivery containers in the sea. Not only are points coming late, yet they cost more, too.
The bright side is Lathrop said they’ve found a domestic vendor as an alternate option. Nevertheless, they’re still paying even more and attempting to determine where to keep a year’s worth of bottle, 7 months early.
With all points taken into consideration, the struggle isn’t as hard as what they dealt with in 2014. That was when smoke from the wildfires and COVID-19 maintained consumers away.
“We’re in the growth, I just don’t know how it ends. You can build a port yet if you do not have trucks to obtain it out or the port, it doesn’t matter,” Lathrop said.
There’s something that is still an assurance and that’s the excellent taste of the glass of wines.
“I have barrels today embeded the Atlantic Ocean that ought to be filled out now. They’re never going to come.” -Mark Lathrop, owner of, @LibLakeWine.
