Don’t let your Melbourne Cup runneth dry!

Don’t let your Melbourne Cup runneth dry! - Boutique Wine and Champagne

It is  difficult to avoid hearing about supply chain disruptions  wherever you might be in the world.

As industrial production starts to crank up again in anticipation, perhaps prematurely, but let’s hope not, of a reduction in the viciousness of Covid, supply is not keeping pace with  demand. 

Have you noticed a shortage of cars, semiconductors, building materials, electrical components, printer inks? The list goes on and on.

The situation is exacerbated by shortages of shipping and shipping containers, as well as Truck driver shortages.

But on top of  this and much more, there have been terrible weather conditions around the world resulting in shortages of coffee from South  America, wheat and pea shortages in North America.  Labour shortages in Australia are holding  back meat  and  stone fruit production. has since April this year  (COLD BLAST RUINS THE MAGNOLIA BLOOMS IN MY GARDEN!) been concerned about a grape shortage. Furthermore the situation was confirmed on our drive through France last month and documented in our blog. ( A CAR OF CHAMPAGNE, COVID, COLD WEATHER AND THE COTE D’AZUR).

However, this week I was interested to hear that Australia may be facing a booze shortage. It would seem Australian sourced drinks will be in good supply. However, imported liquors, spirits not to mention Champagne could be difficult to get your hands on if you are looking for something out of the ordinary.

When I started this blog, I was very much focussed on the upcoming Melbourne Cup. There is no real substitute for celebrating a win with Champagne. Mind you there is no better way to drown the sorrows of a loss than with a glass of Champagne. 

My focus on the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival caused me to overlook the fact that readers may be planning a Halloween Party. Then of course, if you are planning with a longer time-frame in mind, Christmas is only 9 weeks away.
