Duplin’s roots trace back to the 1970s when Muscadine grapes were considered a “wonder crop,” and a large winery out of New York was paying $350 per ton for North Carolina’s native grapes. D.J. Fussell, Sr. and his two sons, David and Dan, decided to grow grapes. Within three years, the price fell to $150 per ton and the Fussells were looking for a way to salvage their livelihoods. In the early 1970s, the family decided to create a market for their grapes and started making wine. Today, Duplin winery has a tank capacity of over 1.7 million gallons and sells over 450,000 cases of wine annually. All Duplin wines are cold fermented to preserve the natural sweetness that only muscadine grapes can produce.
