New Duplin Cotton Candy wine: Everything you need to know

Close your eyes, take a sip of Duplin Cotton Candy and let the light-as-a-cloud sweetness carry you back to giggles on the Tilt-a-Whirl and sneaking those first kisses on the Ferris wheel. 

This is a fun, sweet blush wine, but our master winemakers did not take it lightly. They spent two years testing muscadine grape blends and tasting batches of wine to create Cotton Candy. They balanced just enough sweetness with that elusive cotton candy flavor to make Duplin Cotton Candy taste like wine while evoking the joy of tipping your tongue on fluffy cotton candy. 

Hints of berry and vanilla capture everything wonderful about pink cotton candy spinning onto paper cones at summertime carnivals and state fairs. 

This wine won’t be around for long. We made a limited number of bottles. When they’re gone, they’re gone.

Drink Duplin Cotton Candy frosty cold. Make Cotton Candy ice cubes and float the “wine cubes” in a cold glass of Cotton Candy. 

When it comes to cocktails, try Duplin Cotton Candy with tequila in our Cotton Candy Margarita. Make a wine slushie version of a Cotton Candy Cosmo by blending this wine with vodka and Pink Cosmo Sweetzer mix. Another slushie we love is the Cotton Candy Tilt-A-Whirl made with frozen strawberries, Duplin Cotton Candy and a splash of cream soda. Check our Recipes section for more ideas. 

Full of summertime joy, Cotton Candy pairs wonderfully with food, family and friends. Pop the cork when you’re sharing charcuterie. This wine is especially nice with salty snacks like blue cheese scattered on a tray full of kettle-cooked plan or barbecue potato chips. Try it with jalapeno-garnished pepper jack cheeseburgers, spicy grilled Buffalo wings, bacon-wrapped hot dogs or a big platter of nachos with plenty of Duplin Gourmet Muscadine Pineapple Habanero Salsa. Cotton Candy is equally wonderful with sweet spicy barbecue sauces. 

Of course, Duplin Cotton Candy is wonderful with vanilla ice cream (we pour it right into the bowl), old-fashioned pound cake, fruit desserts like strawberry shortcake and, you guessed it, cotton candy.

 See you by the Ferris wheel!
