Duplin Family Favorites | Ronnie

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.

Summertime Sampler

Hi, I’m Ronnie from Duplin Winery. I’m in my yard in Rose Hill, North Carolina. It's a beautiful day and my wife told me I had to get off the couch and get outside. Folks, summertime is just around the corner and I want to share with you some of my favorite, Duplin products for the summertime.

My favorite Duplin wine in the summertime is our Sangria Red. Muscadine with citrus tones and peach flavors. My wife's favorite is the White Sangria. Muscadine with a splash of citrus. We like our summertime wines really cold, so normally we drink come over ice. But, when you’re outside, in the sun - the ice tends to melt. So now, we slice up fresh fruit and keep in the freezer and use those as our ice cubes.

For the Red Sangria, I like to drop in a frozen strawberry and a frozen peach slice. My wife, Wendy, for the White Sangria - she likes to drop in a strawberry and a couple of frozen pineapple chunks. But, use your imagination, have fun with it, keeps it cold. It gives me something to nibble on when I'm doing my other favorite summer activity, grilling out.

When I'm grilling out - I brought a couple of my favorite Duplin Winery sauces, Muscadine Smokehouse Grilling Sauce. A perfect blend of smoke and that vinegar base that we really love in Eastern North Carolina. The Muscadine Carolina Mustard Barbecue Sauce, now that's a South Carolina style sauce. It's a perfect blend of a mustard base, with pineapple juice, cayenne pepper and brown sugar.

So get your grills ready, get a good supply of Duplin: Sangria Red, Sangria White and Duplin grilling sauces. Get your grill ready, because I believe this is going to be one of the best summers we've ever had.

Until we meet again. Take care of yourself.
