Favorite Wine: Electric Pelican

@ John Cook, you were a club member for years and only rated the wine 2 stars? not saying much for yourself! I found it nice, didnt like the knotty pine box feel. I think if they last as long as the vineyard has, they will be something to behold! @ The Norton Wine Travelers...... Snobs!

Favorite Wine: The Water at lunch!

Wow is this a loaded bag! I hate to put down the largest winery in the South East US, however....... I have never been yelled at before in all my life! First off we get there, the bar is empty, they tell us it will be 20-30 minutes before we can taste, we have to wait for the group... 45-60min later we get caught up in the wave of tourists that just came back form the off-site tour. We were packed in at the bar like cattle(yet again) and then 1 man for 30-40 people starts yelling at us and telling us why Duplin Winery is the best thing created besides fire! Im all for being proud, but watered down niagra, concord, catawba grape juice does not a (coastal james grape make!) Anyway, during the onslot of verbal abuse we were taking, we were never given the oppertunity to ask questions, comment, or react as soon as the first 1oz was pourd and consumed the topic was dropped and you were moved on to the 2nd so on and so forth till all the weak, over corn syruped tonics blended together. At that point to add insult to injury, we were told by our server in the bistro; when one of us didnt eat her lasagna because it was tastless and watery, that we were wrong and they were right! Enough Said! well...... Burgundy is a region in France, it should not have to be slapped on a bottle of (Carolina) "Muscadine Wine!"

Favorite Wine: Polar

It is an amazing facility, I dont like having to walk up to a bar and being treated like cattle being milked, the prices are way inflated and the products arent that great! Also, can someone please explain to me what a Scuppadine is, and why someone would pay to have such a slaughter of southern culture printed on thier lables!

I dont know if there is a more ugly hateful winery and staff around! First off, stop telling your customers that your wines are fruit infused! Its glorified kit wines, adult coolaid! Idiots! P.S. Nice Strip Mall!
