Being a teacher, I suggested to my wife (Jedi mind-trick) that she take off my Spring Break and travel to the southeast with me. We eventually drove to Wilmington and Southport, NC (around the Cape Fear area) and had a wonderful time.

On a whim as we left to return to IL I saw a sign for Duplin Winery. We stopped by (having been extremely interested in wines for several years) and tasted some of the local varieties. I discovered the subtropical native variety of Muscadine grapes (as opposed to the typical vinifera).

If you’ve never tried a Muscadine wine, I can only describe the good ones to be like “fresh grape juice with a kick”. It’s truly something to be had, especially during the summer. While many might have heard of Scuppernog, I find a slightly chilled glass of Magnolia from Duplin Winery to be one of the most refreshing and invigorating things I’ve ever drank.

Experiences? Opinions?

Friend of mine living in NC had sent me 2 bottles, red and white. After opening 'em, we found muscadine wines to be excellent for lamb chops marinades...and unfortunatelly, that was the ONLY use we could think of.

I'd rather drink dog piss than any product of the musky-dine grape. In fact that would be a good blind side by side.
I would rather drink a muscadine than dog urine.

I'm not sure I could tell the difference though. Cool
That is the winner of the best thread of all time award. No contest.

Grunhauser, the redneck from East Cobb, Georgia (BillyBoy? BillyBob? - something like that), Pesterer, etc. are all lightweights compared to those two. WinkBig Grin
