Stomp Grapes. Drink Wine.

For 40 years, the friends and family at Duplin Winery have stomped grapes. Once to make wine and now just for fun! Join us for our 40th Annual Grape stomp celebration on Saturday, September 10th. This event has live music from Chocolate Chip & Company Band and The Holiday Band, dancing, wine tastings and a grape stomping contest. Festival-goers get a chance to stomp grapes with their bare feet. Prizes will be awarded to our best grape stompers.

Special vineyard and production facility tours will be given throughout the afternoon until 6pm. Exclusive wine tastings are available at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm, 6pm, 7pm & 8pm. Our tastings fill up quickly, so make sure to reserve your space today. The Bistro Restaurant will be open on a first come first serve basis and food tents will be available on site for dinner purchases.

Bring your friends and family to this fun evening in Rose Hill, NC! Don’t forget your chairs for your own comfort but most of all, don’t forget your dancing shoes so you can get your shag on!
