This year, the Summer Solstice (more commonly known as the First Day of Summer) is June 21. It’s the day with the most hours of sunlight for the year, so let’s lighten up and make the most of all of the daylight hours!

Wake up early and enjoy some cool morning air as you listen to the sounds of the birds singing. Relish the quiet time, as you recall the days of your youthful summers.

Do you remember your favorite outdoor game growing up? Was the badminton or volleyball net always set up in the backyard? Was there a daily to-be-continued-tomorrow game of softball or stick ball at the playground? Did you play tag with the neighborhood kids as dusk approached? Was there competition between the generations when the croquet set came out? Did the corn hole set reflect the conflicting college loyalties within your family? Was the garden hose or sprinkler the place to cool off after getting over-heated with other activities?

Why not make new memories and plan some old-fashioned fun for your modern-day family and neighbors? Dust off any of the old outdoor games hiding in the garage, or simply set up an obstacle course in the yard, using anything you can find to jump or run through. The finish line could even be that garden sprinkler! Who says that these good times have to stop at the end of childhood? Let’s get outside and have some summer fun!

All of the activity will surely stir up everyone’s appetite. For some delicious summertime snacks, try these offerings from Duplin’s recipe collection:

Scuppernong Fruit Cocktail
Mozzarella Panini

Getting thirsty? Make up a pitcher of Summertime Spritzer using Duplin’s Magnolia wine. (Hint: use our Alcohol-Free Scuppernong to make great spritzers for the kids!) Or keep it simple and chill down our most popular trio: Duplin’s Cool, Sweet and Easy wines!

Behind The Scenes with Duplin: Sweet Fudge

A behind-the-scenes look at how Duplin Winery’s fudge-making process.

Behind The Scenes:

Duplin’s Sweet Fudge

Happy National Fudge Day!

Here at Duplin Winery, we specialize in a few things other than crafting America’s favorite muscadine wines. One of those specialties is making our very own fudge. At both of our retail locations in Rose Hill, NC and North Myrtle Beach, SC we offer a sweet and savory variety of fudge.

We know our customers love of our muscadine wine so we started making our own fudge as another way to satisfy that sweet tooth! Our flavors of fudge are always changing because we love to experiment and try new recipes incorporating new and fun flavors. We even have several special recipes that fuse the sweet blend of muscadine wine and candy that we know you will love!

Make sure to visit us in either location and sample our different fudge flavors to find your favorite and let us know in the comments section which one it is and what wine you paired it with.

Have any suggestions for flavors? Let us know that, too!

Enjoy!

Father’s Day Celebration Ideas

Dave and Jonathan Fussell

Father’s Day Celebration Ideas

Not sure what to do for Dad? Here are some sweet suggestions!

Daddy, Pop, Father, Dad … whatever name he goes by, it’s his time to shine! Father’s Day is a grand time to say, “Thank you!” for all of the hard work and sacrifices dads make and for all of the fun and valuable lessons they share with us.

What will you do to celebrate the special man in your life? Will you break out the catcher’s mitt, fire up the grill or head to the lake or golf course with Dad to celebrate? Will you surprise your grandfather with a phone call to thank him for steering you in the right direction as you were growing up? Will you remember someone who stepped in to help you at a time when you really needed a father in your life? Will you let your husband know how much he means to you and your children?

If you’re lucky enough to still have your dad in your life, why not take some time on Father’s Day to learn something new from him or to learn something you never knew about him? Who was his best friend in school? What was his least favorite subject? What sport does he wish he had played? Who was his favorite musical group? Share your own answers to these questions, too. You might have a good laugh and find that you have more in common than you ever knew! (You can do this in person or with a phone call, a Skype session or any other way … there are so many ways to communicate today.)

It wouldn’t be a holiday without food. Here are two ideas for Father’s Day meals, using our recipes, paired with Duplin wines, of course!

Father’s Day Brunch:

Roasted Red Pepper Omelet (using Duplin’s Roasted Red Pepper & Onion Relish)
• Dad’s favorite bread (If you live in the South, you’d better have biscuits!)
• Duplin’s new Sweet Rosé wine (perfect for a sparkling toast to Dad)

Above: Roasted Red Pepper Omelet is a Duplin favorite recipe using Roasted Red Pepper & Onion Dip.

Father’s Day Cook Out:

Dave’s Famous Rib Recipe (using Duplin’s Muscadine Smokehouse Grilling Sauce)
• Dad’s favorite summer sides (baked beans, potato salad and cole slaw come to mind)
• A selection of Duplin red wine: Burgundy (for the dry wine drinkers), Hatteras Red and Black River Red

Above: Dave Fussell Jr.’s Famous Rib Recipe is one that will surprise your dad with its aroma and smokey flavor.

If you can’t be with your grill master this Father’s Day, why not surprise him with a great gift of a Duplin Sauce Trio to use the next time he lights up the grill? Or create a specialized gift basket by adding his favorite Duplin Gourmet products to a carrier that reflects his interests—a tackle box, tool box, cooler or beach bag are just a few ideas to get you started!


History of Father’s Day:

• Celebrations honoring fathers have taken place in various areas of the world for centuries, and fathers have been honored in parts of the United States since the early 20th century.
• Some people say the first Father’s Day in the U.S. was June 19, 1910, in Washington state, created by a woman to honor her father, who had raised six children on his own after his wife died. Others say it started in West Virginia a few years earlier.
• It wasn’t until 1966 that President Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers on the third Sunday in June. (It was 1914 when President Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.)
• In 1972, President Nixon made Father’s Day a national holiday.

Rosé All Day with Duplin Wine

Sweet Rosé Lemonade

Rosé All Day with Duplin Wine

Sweeten your day with these Sweet Rosé wine how-to’s and recipes!

This May, we released Sweet Rosé – our newest addition to our products list. Duplin Winery specializes in Muscadine wines, so naturally, this wine is made with a secret blend of delicious Muscadine grapes, just with an added fizz. Since our last product release in 2016, we have worked to create the perfect blend of red and white muscadines for the Sweet Rosé AND it finally arrived.

If we were to describe Sweet Rosé, we would say that Sweet Rosé is incredibly refreshing with a delightfully fresh and crisp flavor. This blush will enliven your senses with its vibrant and fruity aroma. Each sip is one to be relished and shared with good company. Best served chilled.

How to ‘Rosé All Day’:

1. Stock up on Duplin’s Sweet Rosé
2. Clear a day on your calendar
3. Invite experienced ‘Rosé All Day’ers’ (AKA anyone who needs an excuse to spend the day sipping Rosé with you)
4. Open Sweet Rosé
5. Pour Sweet Rosé
6. Remember, you can’t ‘Rosé All Day’ if you don’t start in the morning!
7. A recommended step is adding a delicious brunch to your day!

Our Favorite Sweet Rosé Recipes:

1. Sweet Rosé Bellini

• Add 1-part Peach Purée and 3-parts Sweet Rosé.
• OR, add 1-part Peach Schnapps and 3-parts Sweet Rosé.

2. Moscow Mule Mimosa

• Add 1-part vodka, 1-part fresh lime juice, 2-parts ginger beer, and 2-parts Sweet Rosé. Then garnish with lime wedges and mint leaves!

3. Sweet Rosé Lemonades

• Pour half a glass of store-bought lemonade (or homemade if that’s how you roll) in your glass, then finish with Sweet Rosé and garnish with a lemon wedge! You can use regular lemonade or pink lemonade – we recommend regular since Sweet Rosé is already pink!
• Rim champagne flutes with a lemon wedge and dip in sugar for an extra garnish!

4. Raspberry Rosé Coolers

• Fill champagne flute with ¾ Sweet Rosé and add 1 small scoop of Raspberry Sorbet. Garnish with frozen raspberries!

5. Sweet Rosé Jell-O Shots

• Mix Jell-O mix and plain gelatin in a bowl and stir. Pour in 1 cup of boiling water and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Slowly pour in 3 cups of chilled Sweet Rosé and stir gently and let the bubbles to pop. Pour the Jell-O mix into individual containers or in an 8x8 dish. Cover and chill until firm.
• For an extra garnish, add sprinkles or edible glitter on top before chilling.

Above: Sweet Rosé can be purchased at either Duplin Winery location or online. When purchased by the case, Heritage Club Members receive a 25% off case discount on 12 Duplin wines and the general public can receive 20% discount.

Tips:

2. Add mint leaves for a hint of mint and pretty garnish!
3. Add cinnamon whiskey for a kick!
4. Add fresh fruit or frozen fruit for a pretty garnish!
5. Add pomegranate juice and seeds!
