D'Marie (Booth 475)
Description

While D'Marie customers were enjoying our Tuscan Triangles and Tuscan Wine Dip Mixes, we noticed them needing something to cleanse their palates while sampling our delicious hand prepared treats. Our team came together and developed our “Original All Natural Frappe Vino”. After much trial and error and many fun afternoons of tasting in the kitchen, our first bag of Frappe Vino was introduced in August 2006. Our All Natural Frappe Vino is the perfect compliment to our other products and lent itself to becoming a part of the d’marie signature “Party in a Bag”.  Our customers love all of our products together in our “Party in a Bag” to give as a birthday, corporate, hostess and holiday gifts!
