NC Governor Beverly Perdue Welcomes Nature’s Pearl to Toast Her Birthday

Legend says that over 400 years ago, Sir Walter Raleigh sent Queen Elizabeth I a keg of muscadine wine, made from North Carolina grapes in the New World.

On Friday, January 14th, 2011, Debbie Pullen and Ben Kish of Nature’s Pearl traveled to Raleigh, NC to toast Governor Beverly Perdue’s birthday with Nature’s Pearl Muscadine Grape Juice.

Accompanying Nature’s Pearl on this historic occasion were NC Representative Julia C. Howard, Deputy Secretary Dale Carroll of the NC Department of Commerce, and Joe Sanderson and Joy Hicks from the NC Department of Agriculture.  Video of the meeting is now available on your Davie County YouTube channel
