The subject basically says it all. No matter what I do, our bottle count at the tasting room never matches what we are supposed to have in WineDirect. I don’t believe theft is occurring so I am puzzled by the numbers always being wrong (not talking just a few bottles, this is multiple cases). Some background…
Our tasting room & winery are at different locations and have separate inventory pools. Every time stock is brought to the tasting room we do an inventory transfer.
Wholesale customers (restaurants, distributors) frequently pick up wine from the tasting room and are invoiced from our bookkeeper so we keep a log of that wine and I do inventory adjustments weekly to account for these.
Wine club shipments that are paid for get packed at processing time and are set aside.
If anyone has insight or new ideas on how they handle wholesale, inventory, etc please let me know! How often do you all do bottle counts? We used to NEVER do them, but now that we have Vin6…WineDirect… I’ve started doing them weekly and am thinking that is not often enough! Halp!
