Since all we do is talk about the weather these days...
Ah, Friday night leftovers! The night when you finish off the bottles of wine you started all week, but stuck a cork in it after thinking an entire bottle of wine wouldn't make for a very productive morning.
Um hum, doesn't happen often in our house.
Wine stopper? What for?
But for those of you with self control, when your Friday leftovers are gone, we fully expect to see you over the weekend to stock up for the week. Try something new while you are here! We have our weekend wine tastings from noon-5pm on Saturday and Sunday!
Countdown To Spring
It Feels Like Spring... But It's Not
Boy, have we had a run of luck with the weather the last few weeks! While it's not exactly blue skies and sunny every day, I don't think anyone is complaining about wearing a light jacket instead of a parka! This little tease of mild weather will most likely come to an end before the 60 and 70 degree temperatures are here to stay, but it sure makes us look forward to spring that much more.
It's the time of year in our lakefront community where the holiday's, Winterfest and most recently, Valentine's Day are over. Let's face it... this is typically when the "Winter Blues" like to take hold and have us looking for something to do over the weekend that involves more than a Netflix binge! It's been so unseasonably warm, our typical winter free-time favorites aren't even an option without any snow!
New World Wine Shop invites you to countdown to spring by stopping out at the shop for a wine tasting. We have a lot of great wine in the store and will start previewing wines to stock for the spring and summer over the next few weeks. We always love your feedback and look forward to stocking the shelves with all of your input in mind.
Another great suggestion is to sign a group of friends up for one of our Private Wine Table Tasting events. We have really created a great, relaxed atmosphere for friends, family and neighbors to come together and spend some time not just tasting wine, but sitting around a table and enjoying each others company in a different environment than "the norm". We'd really love to have you and guarantee it's a great time had by all.
So kick those winter blues and come taste some wine. We're here... and you know where to find us!
Sorry for the flub, it's just that we have so many amazing events going on in Lake Geneva and in our store over the next few weeks, we have filled the shop with so many new goodies to share with you! Stop in and see us at New World Wine Shop while you are in town for Winefest. There it is again! We mean, W I N T E R F E S T!
New World Wine Shop is filled with everything from unique whiskeys, bourbons, craft beers, our Valentine's Day promotion with Colby Red Wine, next weeks Bourbon tasting, and so much more! Come out and see us this weekend and next weekend over Winterfest, in downtown Lake Geneva!
In Addition To...
In addition to our tasting with Central Standard Tasting today from 1pm to 5pm, we haven't forgotten our wine lovers! Join us for a WINES OF SPAIN tasting today from 1pm-5pm. Come see us at New World Wine Shop today and catch the holiday BUZZ!
A Wine Story: The Benzinger Family
New World Wine Shop hosted a Benzinger wine tasting the weekend before Thanksgiving, which of course prompted further reading about what it was that we were sampling in the store. Typically there is a backstory about how a winery got started and a little more information about how the wine is produced. Really, it's why we love our Wine Table Tastings so much... we get to tell Wine Stories!
There are many things we love about the Benziger Family Winery; the first being that it includes "FAMILY". Not just some family... the entire family! With some help from his parents, the Benzinger Family Winery was founded in the late seventies by one of the seven Benzinger siblings. It wasn't long before more siblings joined in on the running of the vineyards and eventually all seven children were involved in one way or another.
The second thing we love is the biodynamic way of farming the Benzinger Family Winery practices. Biodynamic is a pretty complex word; but it's also the reason Benzinger wine produces such complex and vibrant flavor. BIodynamic is a holistic, ecological and ethical approach to farming that mirrors the natural systems found in nature. Everything plays a role, there is no waste, and the end goal is the make the farm completely self-sufficient system that requires no outside assistance to produce the crops. All nutrients in the soil come from the farm itself.
SUPER sustainable. SUPER organic. SUPER flavor.
After nearly 40 years of business, the Benzinger Family sold their winery to a much larger company a few years ago. They may have sold the business, but the farming practices remain the same, as does the quality of the wine. Something else you don't hear very often is every single employee of the winery kept their position with the company, and was given a raise. While the Benzinger family may not be in the wine business anymore, they have recentered their drive for success in the philanthropic sense, giving back to the community where both their family and business flourished over the years.
Through the holiday season we invite you to stop by our wine shop in downtown Lake Geneva to pick up a bottle or two of wine from the Benzinger Family Winery collection to share and enjoy with your own family.
The true gift will be the retelling of this Wine Story. ::Crickets::
Good luck with that! You may just want to stick to the wine!

It all started with a crisp breeze across the lake; and within days, Lake Geneva turned into natures canvas. Splashes of warm, nostalgic colors from the ground to the sky inspire sweaters, firepits, and soul warming wine with the flavor of the season.
