Thats right?! Is this a new thing going on I missed out on? Wine Margiritas?!

We have this wonderful winery here in NC called Duplin County Winery and they focus on Muscadine and Scuppernong grape wines. I always try to make it out that way, but its a good hour drive there. So my mom just happens to drive out that way to go to lunch with my dad and hits the winery for me picking up 3 bottles of my favorite wine AND these new Wine-arita mixes they have that they match up with different types of wine.

I haven't tried it yet, she's coming over here tonight with everything since MOST of it is supposed to be for Thanksgiving and we're having it here... but I'm sure hubby will split at least one glass with me tonight.

I'll take photos and share anymore that I may learn when it comes. Just didn't know if I was late to train?!

OK.. I gotta know more. Smile By the way.. that top secret thing we're doing.. I was able to get into that collaboration site and I got the document off. I'm thinking we should move to google wave because google wave probably isn't going to go anywhere. Smile Never know right! I'll tackle that this weekend.

Just so you know, I completely agree that even if its not the most functional, its the most trustworthy!


And my mom forgot to bring the wine because we were too excited about going shopping at Kohl's for my Christmas present that we went WAY over budget for!

Going to go to her house tomorrow to help work on her computer issues and bring home the wine and mix then. NEED to investigate this further too.

Well I don't think Duplin county has cornered the market on it I get a lot of hits doing a search on google all over the country! My mom did a taste testing while there and said it was soooooooooooo good, she bought the 3 kinds they had to go with my wines she bought me!

I'm going to meet a friend of mine from Wilmington and her husband out there to their wine tasting and have lunch in their restaraunt.

Here's their website:
http://www.duplinwinery.com/

Here's the holiday wine my mom bought I am going to try when she finally brings it over!

Here's one of their cosmo mixes! (Wow, that looks good)

So the crazy lady ended up buying me all 3 kinds they had AND bought me 3 more bottles of my favorites!

I'm so excited!!!!! Very Happy

So I did drink the Wine-a-Rite mix with the burgendy wine... it goes in the mixer/blender as 1/2 bottle, then 1/2 the mix, 6oz of lemon lime soda and ice. Then serve.

My husband hates wine, but even he drank a large glass and loved it! He's waiting to try the cosmo mix next. Smile

So here's everything we got... if anyone is interested, just order some online or do a search on their website to see if they offer it locally to a store near you.
