Duplin's roots trace back to the 1970's 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 decided to grow grapes. Within three years, the price fell to $150 per ton and the Fussell's were looking for a way to salvage their livelihoods.In the early 1970's, the family decided to create a market for their grapes and started making wine.In-laws, grandchildren, Aunts, and Uncles all pitched in stomping grapes and bottling wine. While larger wineries flew their sales executives across the country in corporate jets, the Fussell's traveled with their wines in a converted hog trailer."We pulled up to this sophisticated wine distributor in Raleigh...It was the first time they had seen anyone bring them wine loaded in a hog trailer. David G. Fussell, Sr.Duplin Winery grew rapidly. By 1983, production levels reached 200,000 gallons per year. However, the rest of the decade would prove disasterous for the winery.Changes in tax laws and new legislation resulted in plummeting sales and the banks took everything but the winery itself. In order to meet payrolls, equipment was sold off and David Sr. took a full-time job teaching. He lost his house and admits that during these years he often thought about quitting. His wife, Ann, kept saying, "We make the best Muscadine wines in America. Let's give it one more day and see what happens. The Fussell's resilience and commitment sustained Duplin Winery until its customers discovered its Muscadine wines and spread the word.Today, this North Carolina winery has a tank capacity of over 1.4 million gallons, is the largest winery in the South, and produces the best selling wine in North Carolina. Over 100,000 visitors experience our Rose Hill winery and production facility each year.Duplin's award winning North Carolina wines include Magnolia, featured in Martha Stewart Living as a favorite summertime wine, Hatteras Red, a North Carolina favorite enjoyed with good-'ol southern barbecue, and Scuppernong, the oldest wine in America.In 2009, Duplin Winery proudly received honors normally reserved for the traditional west coast wine belt.
