Are you stressing trying to figure out how much grapes to contract so that you have enough wine 4-5 years from now?
Are you worrying about how much wine to bottle during the next bottle run so that you don’t have too much wine on hand?
Are you a bookkeeper who (secretly) wants to provide the winemaker or owner with some useful and valuable information that they will actually look at?
This procedure is useful for all wineries, even those with a messy QuickkBooks file, so long as you have taken a physical inventory of your case goods at the end of each year.
The Inventory Crystal Ball mini-course will show you how to evaluate one SKU family (the recent vintages of a SKU).
- How much wine should I bottle?
- How much wine should I plan on making to meet my needs 3 to 4 years from now?
You will also end up with a Sales Forecast, a Production Schedule, and a Release Schedule.
