Forest Fires and a Global Pandemic
WVVI has recently been fighting on two fronts and has come out stronger than ever. Despite the onset of the pandemic and resulting government sanctions, sales suffered as retail stores were closed indefinitely across the nation. Despite this, and despite the forest firesthat presented challenges to production, the company managed to adapt. They circumvented greater losses by capitalizing on distribution channels still at their disposal, and sold wine directly to customers at home, as well as to the retail spaces that were still allowed to stay open during the pandemic.
Future Outlook for WVVI
The company has adapted exceptionally well to the troubling circumstances it found itself in over the past few quarters. With promising financial numbers and a serendipitous skyrocketing in WVVI stock price, the company is poised to leverage its resources to convince current and prospective investors that the company is worth investing in for the long-term. It remains to be seen if WVVI can capitalize on the staggering increase in stock price to maintain significant and sustained increases in shareholder value.
