We stopped into this store because of it's cute name, and because I love semi-sweet white wines like Riesling and am always looking for a new variety to try. The owner of this shop encouraged us to ask questions, so I asked one question about whether a wine was similar to one with a very similar name that I am familiar with. He proceeded to berate me in front of a group of people who were participating in the wine tasting, telling me I was surely mistaken, didn't know what I was talking about (because I dared ask about an AMERICAN wine he hadn't heard of - gasp!) I was so uncomfortable and embarrassed by this horrible person, it was all I could do to get out of there. When I tried to escape with my dignity hanging on by a small thread, the man actually dared to throw a few final jabs at me, including "Well, you're really committed, aren't you?!" By the time I got to the car, I felt deflated.

If you like horrible pretentious people who think that because they know something about European grapes and carry wine that they think you would have never heard of otherwise (we have several of his varieties in our local grocery store, so that pompous statement was also false), then by all means visit this store. If you want to be treated with respect and not be verbally abused when you are in a place of business wanting to spend actual money, skip right by this store and spend your money in one of the several great gift shops Lake Geneva has to offer instead. If I could have given this awful store zero stars, I would have done so.

I visited Pop More Corks with a bunch of friends when visting Lake Geneva. We had such a nice time tasting wine. The owner was extremely knowledgeable and good at educating our group on the wonderful varieties of wine we tried. We all went home with bottles of our favorite tastings and memories of a fun day!
