Rosé All Day with Duplin Wine

Sweet Rosé Lemonade

Rosé All Day with Duplin Wine

Sweeten your day with these Sweet Rosé wine how-to’s and recipes!

This May, we released Sweet Rosé – our newest addition to our products list. Duplin Winery specializes in Muscadine wines, so naturally, this wine is made with a secret blend of delicious Muscadine grapes, just with an added fizz. Since our last product release in 2016, we have worked to create the perfect blend of red and white muscadines for the Sweet Rosé AND it finally arrived.

If we were to describe Sweet Rosé, we would say that Sweet Rosé is incredibly refreshing with a delightfully fresh and crisp flavor. This blush will enliven your senses with its vibrant and fruity aroma. Each sip is one to be relished and shared with good company. Best served chilled.

How to ‘Rosé All Day’:

1. Stock up on Duplin’s Sweet Rosé
2. Clear a day on your calendar
3. Invite experienced ‘Rosé All Day’ers’ (AKA anyone who needs an excuse to spend the day sipping Rosé with you)
4. Open Sweet Rosé
5. Pour Sweet Rosé
6. Remember, you can’t ‘Rosé All Day’ if you don’t start in the morning!
7. A recommended step is adding a delicious brunch to your day!

Our Favorite Sweet Rosé Recipes:

1. Sweet Rosé Bellini

• Add 1-part Peach Purée and 3-parts Sweet Rosé.
• OR, add 1-part Peach Schnapps and 3-parts Sweet Rosé.

2. Moscow Mule Mimosa

• Add 1-part vodka, 1-part fresh lime juice, 2-parts ginger beer, and 2-parts Sweet Rosé. Then garnish with lime wedges and mint leaves!

3. Sweet Rosé Lemonades

• Pour half a glass of store-bought lemonade (or homemade if that’s how you roll) in your glass, then finish with Sweet Rosé and garnish with a lemon wedge! You can use regular lemonade or pink lemonade – we recommend regular since Sweet Rosé is already pink!
• Rim champagne flutes with a lemon wedge and dip in sugar for an extra garnish!

4. Raspberry Rosé Coolers

• Fill champagne flute with ¾ Sweet Rosé and add 1 small scoop of Raspberry Sorbet. Garnish with frozen raspberries!

5. Sweet Rosé Jell-O Shots

• Mix Jell-O mix and plain gelatin in a bowl and stir. Pour in 1 cup of boiling water and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Slowly pour in 3 cups of chilled Sweet Rosé and stir gently and let the bubbles to pop. Pour the Jell-O mix into individual containers or in an 8x8 dish. Cover and chill until firm.
• For an extra garnish, add sprinkles or edible glitter on top before chilling.

Above: Sweet Rosé can be purchased at either Duplin Winery location or online. When purchased by the case, Heritage Club Members receive a 25% off case discount on 12 Duplin wines and the general public can receive 20% discount.

Duplin Winery’s Rose Hill Location Renovates Wine Tasting Bars

Duplin Winery’s Rose Hill Location Renovates Wine Tasting Bars

Duplin Winery Rose HillIf you visit our Rose Hill, NC winery, you might notice some changes. Over the past few months, we have been working on renovating our wine tasting rooms.

When we opened our North Myrtle Beach, SC location in June 2015, we constructed four different wine tasting rooms throughout the winery. These tasting rooms worked so well for our business in North Myrtle Beach, that we were inspired and decided to build the same type of tasting rooms at our original location.

It has taken quite some time and patience from both our guests and employees, but our new rooms have turned out beautifully. Our tasting rooms are designed to offer each and every one of our visitors an authentic, enjoyable and informational experience.

It was important to both Dave and Jonathan to preserve the character and history of where Duplin Winery began.

Visit us in Rose Hill, NC. We can’t wait to see you sitting at our table – where it all started!

Before our renovations this year our Rose Hill winery looked like this:

Now our Rose Hill winery looks like this:

Treat your mother to a special Mother’s Day

Duplin’s New Year Resolutions
Treat your mother to a special Mother’s Day

What’s your favorite Mother’s Day memory? Did you make a hand-print card and a bouquet of paper flowers in elementary school, anxiously waiting to take your creation out of the backpack and present it to your mom on her special day? Did your own child make you breakfast in bed, even though you hated the thought of getting crumbs on the sheets? Perhaps there was another special woman in your life … an aunt or a neighbor or someone else who did “mom” things for you.

Who is the special woman in your life today? Is she someone who taught you things you’ll carry with you forever? Someone who cares about you from many miles away? Someone whose smile lights up a room and makes the world a better place? Mother’s Day is the perfect time to say, “Thank you!”

If you’re lucky enough to live close to this wonderful woman, why invite her to a celebration lunch this Mother’s Day? Make it a special time, just for the two of you to get together. Pull out a couple of old crystal wine glasses and some pretty plates for a luncheon on the porch. Or, load up the picnic basket with paper plates, cups and a blanket, stock the cooler with food and Duplin wine, and head out to a favorite family spot. Whatever you do, remember that it’s about time together, celebrating the woman who gave you so much!

If you are looking for menu suggestions for the perfect Mother’s Day treat, check out the recipes on our website. Here are two springtime lunch menu suggestions, using our recipes, paired with Duplin wines, of course!

Spinach, Orange and Goat Cheese Salad

It’s “Taco Party” time!

Duplin’s New Year Resolutions
It’s “Taco Party” time!

Cinco de Mayo (translated: May 5) is a great excuse to bring out some Mexican flavors and invite friends and family to join you at a make-your-own taco bar.

Why “make-your-own”? It helps to keep the festivities casual and fun. Party-goers mix and mingle as they gather around the table to make their own creations—and maybe get a fun idea from the taco maker to the left or right. Gathering over food is a time-honored way to build friendships and let go of the cares of the world. Add wine and some Latin music, and you’ve got all the makings for a fiesta to remember!

Duplin Winery Sangria White and Sangria Red

Duplin Winery's Margarita Sweetzer

Duplin Winery Pineapple Habanero Cheese Dip

What goes better with tacos than Duplin’s Sangria White or Sangria Red?

Some of each! Have plenty of chilled bottles, or for a festive approach, put out a pitcher full of Duplin’s Sangria White with sliced oranges, lemons and/or limes and a pitcher full of Duplin’s Sangria Red with some sliced strawberries. Set out your wine glasses, and let people choose … white, red, or a mixture of both!

Did someone say, “Margarita!”?

Add to the fun by blending up a batch of Margarita Sweetzers, made with Duplin’s Carlos wine. For an added touch, cut up some lime wedges to garnish the margaritas.

Make-your-own Taco Bar:

Creating a make-your-own taco bar is easy, and most of the preparation can be done well before the party begins. That’s another key to a fun and casual event—the host or hostess will be as relaxed and involved as the guests! Here are some ideas for the taco bar; be sure to add your own favorites, too.

  • Taco shells: choice of hard and soft shells, corn and flour
  • Proteins: 2 or 3 choices, such as ground beef with taco seasoning, grilled shrimp or chicken, seasoned black beans
  • Toppings: chop up and put into individual bowls several items, such as tomatoes, lettuce, shredded cheeses, jalapeño peppers, black olives, sour cream
  • Colorful plates and napkins (paper plates are fine for adding to the casual approach and for easy clean up)
  • Don’t forget to keep big bowls full of nacho chips. Serve the chips with guacamole (store-bought or homemade) and Duplin’s Muscadine Pineapple Habanero Salsa!

Fun Facts:

  • Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican Army’s surprising victory over the French at Puebla in 1862, during the Franco-Mexican War.
  • Cinco de Mayo is NOT the celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day (that event is celebrated on September 16, so stock up on Sangria and get ready for another taco party in a few months)!
  • Cinco de Mayo is actually more widely celebrated in the United States than in Mexico—but then, we’re all in for any excuse for a party with tacos, Duplin Sangrias and Margarita Sweetzers! How about you? What’s your favorite taco … and what Duplin wine will you have with it? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
