CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — We're 11 days from New Year's Eve and could be facing one of the most important elements of the holiday.

Alcohol industry experts are grappling with the early stages of a champagne shortage.

This calamity comes as Nielsen reports that champagne demand is up 20 percent from last year.

Experts also say that even if the current supply chain issues improve, the champagne shortage may last until 2023.
