Juliette

Our Semi-Sweet White Muscadine Wine

Tasting Notes

The aroma of honeysuckle on a summer day combines with a citrus-y hint of orange rind and crushed grapefruit in this semi-sweet white muscadine wine. A nice balance of muscadine tannins and a gentle sweetness dance on your palate, just like Juliette loved to do!

Wine Pairing Suggestions

With the hint of citrus like orange rind and crushed grapefruit and just a gentle sweetness, Juliette, our semi-sweet white muscadine wine, is delicious with beef brisket, pulled pork, cooked vegetables, pasta with white sauce, and seafood with lemon and butter, like fish or shrimp scampi.

About Juliette

Our semi-sweet white wine is named Juliette, in honor of Jacob’s wife and matriarch of the Paulk Vineyards family. Gladys Juliette Handley was born December 6, 1932, to Hugo and Pearl Handley. She became better known as Judy, and later in life, “Mama” Judy.

Jacob and Juliette married in 1953 and raised four sons together. Those sons married, giving them 11 grandchildren and, at last count, 14 great-grandchildren. She enjoyed any sort of celebration, from weddings to birthdays, as it was an excuse for some of her favorite things: to gather her whole family together, shop for and give gifts, dance with Jacob, and eat dessert!

Sadly, the Paulk family lost Juliette, Mama Judy, to Parkinson’s Disease in 2013. Her playful spirit, generous soul, and social heart are honored in our semi-sweet white wine, which is fun and sweet – but not too sweet! – and perfect for sharing with family and friends!
