When Family Visits, Keep It Simple!

Duplin Family Cheers

When Family Visits, Keep It Simple!

Summer is the time of year to pack up the car or board a flight and head off for a family visit. Sibling get-togethers, a week with grandparents, a first-time cousin visit…all across the country, families are getting together to catch up, renew bonds and make new memories.

If you are hosting out-of-town family members this summer, you’re probably trying to think of things to do. Remember: don’t “overdo” it; keep it simple! Welcome your visitors by placing a basket of brochures from your chamber of commerce or tourist bureau in the guest room, so they can see what your town has to offer.

Every community has its own special and unique attractions. Does your town have an art or historical museum? A street of local crafts and antique stores? A nature trail or city park? Many outings are free or quite inexpensive. A family visit is a great time to be a tourist in your own town!

If you live near one of our winery locations in Rose Hill, NC, or North Myrtle Beach, SC, why not bring your visitors in for a fun wine tasting? Check the “Music in the Courtyard” tab for a list of musicians, dates and times, so you can enjoy listening to your favorite local artists after your tasting. Of course, you’ll want to have lunch at The Bistro, if you’re visiting our Rose Hill location!

Keep it simple back at home, too. Casual seating, a few tasty snacks, and a good supply of Duplin wines should be all you need to get the conversation flowing and the laughter started! Keep in mind that everyone needs a little quiet time to unwind, so there’s no need to over plan!

Now’s the time for the generations to learn something from each other. The teens might show the older folks how to use the newest technologies to communicate once the family members go back to their own homes. In return, the aunts and uncles might pass down that family card game or other activity that has stood the test of time. Get out the old family photo albums—always good for a laugh, a few tears and great memories. A fun activity is to choose a few interesting photos and recreate them with a modern twist!

Casual family times call for casual eating, too. Pair simple grilled items with make-ahead salads. Pick up some of our Homemade Gourmet Crackers, and have plenty of veggies cut up and ready to dip at any time of the day.

Check out the recipes for any (or all) of these dips:

If you’re the visitor, bring along a Duplin wine gift for your host and hostess. Why not arrive with a three-pack of our newest wines—Sweet Rosé, Summertime Strut and Coastal Shag? Other ideas include a gift basket with a Sweetzer mix and Duplin wine pair or a Duplin Gourmet gift set. With a sweet gift like this, you’ll be sure to be invited back next summer!

Whatever you plan for your family’s visit, remember – it’s not about how many places you go or how much activity you pack in; it’s about the quality of time you spend together, strengthening bonds and creating lifelong memories.

Sweetzer Party Time!

Layered Duplin Winery Sweetzers

Frozen Cocktails on a Hot Day

Sweetzer Party Time!

It’s hot, hot, hot out there! There’s no better way to cool down on a hot summer day than with one of Duplin’s icy, delicious Sweetzers.

What’s a Sweetzer? It’s a wine slushie! Are you a fan of strawberries or blueberries? How about a nice refreshing lemonade? Perhaps you’d rather have a bar drink, such as a Peach Bellini, Piña Colada, Margarita or Pink Cosmo. And who can say no to chocolate? Guess what? We’ve got something for everyone, each made with one of our wines. Check out our full line of Sweetzer mixes and the wines that go with them, then select your favorites and get ready to get cool.

Want to multiply the summer fun?

Why not have a Sweetzer Party? Here’s how:

Step 1:

Make up several different flavors of Sweetzers, following package directions. (Four to six flavors work well; add more for a bigger party.) Do not add ice yet! Just chill down each Sweetzer in its own jug and keep it cold.

Step 2:

Call your friends and invite them over. Ask some of these friends to bring a blender. (You’ll need enough blenders to match the number of Sweetzer flavors you’ll serve.)

“You want me to bring a blender?”

“Yes, please, I’m in a bit of a bind.”

“Okay then. See you later!”

Step 3:

Fill an ice chest with crushed ice. Set out the prepared Sweetzers, line up the blenders, and have lots of glasses or cups ready to fill. Put out some snacks, and you’re ready to go!

Step 4:

Turn on some cool summertime tunes, welcome your guests, and chill out!

 

Party Extra:

For some extra-special fun and a little competition at your Sweetzer Party, have a contest. A lot of people like to mix Sweetzer flavors. For example, they may layer Blueberry Freeze and Electric Lemonade or swirl Piña Colada in their Peach Bellini. (Do this AFTER freezing each flavor.) So, why not put out a challenge to your guests to see who can come up with most creative, tastiest or prettiest Sweetzer? You may even put out some sliced fruits and other garnishes to kick things up a notch. Clear glasses or cups will work best for this challenge, so everyone can see the works of art!

A great prize would be one of Duplin’s Life is Sweeter Acrylic Glasses to keep the contest winner’s Sweetzer nice and icy. They come in pink, blue and lime, and they’re perfect for helping you chill out on a hot summer day. Make sure to order one (or more) of each color for your own collection, too!

NOTE: For the children and non-drinkers in your crowd, any of our Sweetzer flavors can be made alcohol free. Just add water in an equal amount to replace the wine. (For a special treat, use Duplin’s Alcohol Free Scuppernong to replace Brice’s Creek in our Blueberry Freeze or Raspberry Mango Lemonade and our Alcohol Free Red Muscadine to replace the Hatteras Red in the Chocolatini.)

Whichever Sweetzer you choose, remember, “Life is Sweeter with Duplin!”

Cheers!

Duplin Winery to Host 42nd Annual Grape Stomp

For Immediate Release

Duplin Winery to Host 42nd Annual Grape Stomp

This September, Duplin Winery is hosting its 42nd Annual Grape Stomp in Rose Hill, NC on Saturday, September 8 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The event will include live music, interactive games, vineyard tours, wine tastings, prizes, food, drink, and of course a grape stomping contest.

Duplin Winery’s long-standing tradition began in 1976 when Duplin’s first grape harvest was ready for crushing, which was then done manually. Over 100 people joined together in Rose Hill and were able to stomp close to 1,000 pounds of grapes to make the first Duplin wines.

Duplin Winery’s Annual Grape Stomp has come a long way since then. Today, festival-goers stomp around 6,000 pounds of grapes all in good fun. The event is a great tribute to its loyal customers and to the heart of Duplin Wine’s – Muscadine grapes.

Each of the 1,000 attendees will have a chance to stomp grapes with their bare feet and the most skilled will have an opportunity to participate in a stomp off to compete for a grand prize!

“It’s almost like waking up on Christmas morning. We can’t wait to get out and spend a day of fun with our extended Duplin Family,” said Jonathan Fussell, Co-owner of Duplin Winery. “This is something we look forward to and plan for all year and our hope is that our customers continue to love it as much as we do.”

Event Details:
Saturday, September 8 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Attendees will enjoy live music, interactive games, vineyard tours, wine tastings, prizes, food, drinks, and a grape stomping contest. Advance ticket price is $20 with limited availability and day of tickets are $30 with limited space available.

Event location:
918 West Charity Road
Rose Hill, NC 28458

How-To Guide For Experiencing Duplin Wines

How-To-Guide For Experiencing Duplin Wines

Are you a long-time fan of Duplin Winery’s sweet muscadine wine? Or, are you new to sippin’ sweet in the South? Are you wondering where to find Duplin wine and how to store the cases you are about to purchase if they don’t fit in the refrigerator? Our How-To Guide will help you with the best ways to experience Duplin wine.

Buy Duplin Wine

You can buy Duplin wine online, in our retail locations (North Myrtle Beach, SC and Rose Hill, NC), and in select stores in your area (store locator).

Store Duplin Bottles

Most people think to store wine bottles on their sides, but this is not the case for ALL wines. Muscadine wines can be stored on their sides or right side up. Store in a cool/room temperature area.

Open Duplin Bottles

We recommend opening bottles with a wine opener or corkscrew… not sure what other options there are!

Taste Duplin Wine

We typically say taste however you want, but there is a standard way to taste wine – best remembered as the 5 S’s.

Sight

Tilt your glass to the side, hold it up to the light and admire the color and clarity of the wine.

Swirl

With your wine glass on a flat surface, put your hand over the top and swirl your glass in a circular motion. Swirling helps to let the wine release its natural aromas.

Sniff

After swirling your glass remove your hand and stick your nose in the glass to smell the wine.

Sip

Take a small sip.

Savor

Roll it around in your mouth a little to experience all the flavors. Most wines have a pleasant aftertaste.

Preserve Duplin Wine Once Opened

Close with a bottle stopper or original cork and refrigerate for up to 2-3 weeks.

Pair Duplin Wine With Food

We always say drink what you like, when you like and with what you like. Muscadine wine typically compliments spicy foods and BBQ meats very well. We recommend red meats and fish with red wines, and white meats and fish with white wines.

The most important part is to sit back and enjoy it all!

Cheers!
