Overall I was impressed and please by the service we received from the Duplin Winery. However we did ask them to leave their "Winerita" machines turned off which is an extra charge and they did not do as asked. We had to make the request again at the reception. This seemed like a bit of a sneaky way to get extra money. The food was good. The venue is beautiful but the floor was dirtier than I would have expected.
This is a beautiful place to hold a ceremony and/or reception. There is almost no need for decorations, as the venue is naturally gorgeous. There were of course some drawbacks though. There really isn't that much space for a large wedding. A smaller reception (like mine) would be perfect for this spot. They do try to work with you and make everthing as close to what you want as they can. It is an expensive place to have a wedding though - so be prepared to hand over the cash if you want this to be the place that you hold your big day.
