Duplin Family Favorites | Matt

The staff of Duplin decided that we wanted to keep helping our customers learn about the different flavors of Duplin, but instead of asking you what you like, we'll share what we like! We are putting together special Duplin staff recommendations and are calling it Duplin Family Favorites because we know that the staff and our customers are all considered family in Duplin's eyes.


How to open a bottle of wine


The table is set, burgers are ready to come off the grill and barbecue sauce is going on the chicken. All that’s left to do is open the wine, which sounds so easy until the corkscrew hits the cork.

Wine-tasting host, Matt, at our North Myrtle Beach location, is an expert at getting the cork out of the bottle. “I’m sort of a professional wine opener. I get to do this multiple times a day,” he says. 

Follow Matt’s easy steps for opening a bottle of wine, and you’ll be an expert, too.

  1. If the bottle is cold from the refrigerator, wipe it down with a cloth.
  2. Place the bottle on flat, stable surface.
  3. Use a good wine opener. Matt prefers the Duplin Maximus Corkscrew. It’s a heavy-duty, waiter-style corkscrew built for comfort. The soft rubberized grip means it won’t slip out of your hand.
  4. Fold out the serrated foil cutter built into the Duplin Maximus Corkscrew.
  5. Holding the bottle firmly with one hand just below the bottle’s neck, use the serrated foil cutter built into the Duplin Maximus Corkscrew to pop the foil top off the cork.
  6. Fold the foil cutter back into its place and pull out the spiral corkscrew.
  7. Keep that cloth handy to wipe off any condensation if the bottle is cold from the fridge. You don’t want the bottle to slip from your hand.
  8. Place one hand around the bottle’s neck and hold the bottle firmly while using the other hand to place the corkscrew into the middle of the cork. Make sure that the Duplin Maximus Corkscrew handle sits parallel to the top of the bottle. Give the handle a firm tap to dig the corkscrew into the cork.
  9. Twist the handle like you would a knob to wind the corkscrew down into the cork. Use an even pressure as you wind the corkscrew downward.
  10. When the corkscrew has almost disappeared into the corn, but not quite, turn down the Duplin Maximus Corkscrew’s metal lever so that the forked indentation grips the edge of the bottle’s lip and the corkscrew handle is pointed down.
  11. Holding the bottle firmly at the neck, fingers wound around the bottom of the metal lever, use the other hand to grasp the Duplin Maximus Corkscrew’s handle and firmly pull it upwards until the cork rises all the way out of the bottle.
