We would like to all of you who visited us since we opened the doors at New World Wine Shop. It's hard to believe it was only six months ago, over Memorial Day weekend! Although opening a wine a new wine shop is a lot of work we have had a blast! Of course its all about you, our guests. Your input, requests, and knowledge of fine wine keeps us on our feet, always evolving our offerings and plans to make our business even better.
We are currently busy preparing for an exciting new year ahead. Look for our posts of exciting new wine selections and our calendar of fun filled wine events.
So many wonderful things have happened since New World Wine Shop opened for business in 2015! We invite you to take a look back at some of our most fun highlights! We sincerely hope if we didn't see you in the store last year, that we do this year!
Before we even opened our doors we were excited for spring and all of the delicious flavors the sunshine inspires! This Crazy Crosstini recipe is so easy and healthy; pairs wonderfully with a California Rose.
Our first wine tasting was on May 30th, over Memorial Day Weekend in lovely downtown Lake Geneva. We were thrilled with the amount of visitors who came in to check out the store and sample Sangria. As a matter of fact, our Sangria is SO GOOD, that we sell it in the store year round and not just seasonally as most other boutique shops do. So stop in and get a bottle or two to warm you up on one of these cold Wisconsin winter nights!
One of the most fascinating event to come to Lake Geneva is The Inland Lake Yachting Association Regatta! It was an exciting time for Lake Geneva and for our shop, who had visitors from around the world in town for the festivities. Read more about how Fontana will be hosting for the next few years!
September was such a fun month with the kick off of the fall season in Lake Geneva! We featured football party recipes, sweet Rieslings, a very cool art exhibit by Thomas Arvid in our very own Fancy Fair Mall, and so much more!
What a month October was for New World Wine Shop! Oktoberfest was a SMASH HIT! Our shop was filled with visitors all anxious for a taste of our featured Rieslings, and mimosas. We also put our heart into fundraising for Wisconsin Breast Cancer and Environment Research Program (BCERP) by donating 10% of all proceeds of our Pink Moscato during the month of October.
November was a beautiful month filled with family and friends! We introduced our fun and informative Wine Table Tastings, taking place every Saturday afternoon. We also provided some great Thanksgiving wine and cheese pairing, and the DELICIOUS New World Mulled Wine Warmer!
Full of hustle and bustle, the holiday's came and went, but not without a gorgeous spread of french wines for one of our most special wine tastings yet! We also featured some recipes perfect for entertaining!
