Duplin Winery shares seven cocktail recipes to try with its new cotton candy-inspired collection

Rose Hill, North Carolina (WNCT) Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it, and if you’re looking for something a little cute to enjoy with your girlfriends or your significant other, Dublin Winery has something you might like.

You don’t want to miss tasting this new and exclusive collection of cotton candy inspired wines. Duplin Winery has been making life sweeter since the ’70s and they have some exciting cocktail recipes that can be made at home.

“One of my favorite ways to enjoy Cotton Candy wine is to simply fill a large wine glass with ice cubes and pour peaches, blueberries or lime directly over the ice. It’s the perfect complement to an afternoon,” says Morgan Jackson, General Manager of Dublin Winery.

She shares more about the products, the inspiration for them and how you can get a bottle (or two) for yourself.

What inspired Duplin Winery to create this collection?

“The Original Cotton Candy was introduced in May of 2021 after working for nearly two years to perfect a pink raspberry and vanilla wine. The Fossil family’s mission is to delight our customers and make them smile. We wanted wines that would be great, sweet, and easy to drink by adding a playful touch to our Muscadine wines. We only intended the Original Cotton Candy to be a limited product for the Spring/Summer 2021 season, but our customers and retailers loved it so much! Once the last bottles sold out, they were clamoring for more. In addition to the original Cotton Candy, our customers gave us a great idea for making Cotton Candy flavored wine Fruit! They inspired us!”

Which pairs well with each flavor from this group?

“We’re building a library full of fun, delicious cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, hors d’oeuvres, and more! A few of our favorites will start with the Duplin Cotton Candy Blueberry Sangria recipe.And Fresh cut crab cake paired with Duplin Cotton Candy Peach, a refreshing iced mojito made with Duplin Cotton Candy Lime. One of my personal favorites is to create a high charcuterie plate piled high and filled with prosciutto, Genoa salami, blueberry goat cheese, Duplin Muscadine Pepper Jelly, and Duplin Gourmet Crackers paired with chilled bottles of Duplin Cotton Candy Lime to share with friends.”

Are these bottles available to buy at your local grocery store?

“Yes. We have started distributing to local groceries. The process may be a bit slow before most local retailers bring in stock. If you don’t see it at your favorite store, ask the store manager to order it for you!”

How did you guys get the cool color?

“God has blessed us with a wide variety of muscadine grapes that we work with in every harvest season. Our winemakers have worked to perfect the perfect blend for each flavor.”

What kind of cocktail recipes can you make with the kit?

“Some of the traditional cocktail recipes you can make with new Cotton Candy wine include margaritas, cones, mojitos, sangria, and more!”
