Notes

What is the Best Type of Wine to Use for Sangria?
  • Red Wine – Red wine is the best type of wine to use for sangria because it pairs well with the fruit and herbs that are typically used in the drink. Additionally, red wine helps to give sangria its signature color.
  • Spanish Wine – Spanish wine is a good choice for sangria because it is typically lighter and less tannic than other types of red wine. This makes it easier to drink and less likely to overwhelm the other flavors in the drink.
  • Gran Reserva – Gran Reserva is a type of Spanish red wine that has been aged for five years in oak barrels. It is a good choice for sangria because it adds depth and complexity to the drink.
  • White Wine – White wines with a medium to high acidity level such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, or Albariño are great for sangria. These varieties of white wine will bring out the flavors in the fruits, while also providing a crisp and balanced finish.
