Sangria — a delicious concoction of wine, fruit, and liquor — has roots in Spain and Portugal, and maybe the West Indies. This classic drink is perfect for any occasion, from summer picnics to cozy winter nights by the fire. While red wine is commonly used in traditional sangria recipes, white wine can offer a lighter and more refreshing twist.

When it comes to choosing the best white wine for sangria, there are a few key factors to consider. The most important thing to keep in mind is balance. You want a wine that complements the fruity flavors of the sangria without overpowering them. The astringency of tannin-heavy wines like Cabernet Sauvignon or Nebbiolo can clash with the fruity elements of the sangria. Instead, opt for a white wine with crisp acidity and bright fruit flavors.

For the price-conscious consumer, choosing a wine is all about balance. Some of the absolute best wines come with a price tag that's just a fraction of what you would expect. Look for lesser-known varietals or regions that offer great quality at a more affordable price point. When it comes to sangria, you don't need to break the bank to enjoy a delicious and refreshing drink.

Our white wine sangria recipe is the best because we've added marmalade for a little extra punch. This simple apple cider sangria recipe is infused with fall flavor and makes more than enough to share. It's perfect for entertaining! Classic sangria might bring to mind warm summer nights and tropical fruits, but this apple cider-based sangria recipe will have you kissing goodbye to summer and saying hello to cozy nights by the fire.

Nothing is more refreshing than an ice-cold glass of sangria, especially in this South Florida heat. From red, white, sparking, and frozen, there are endless variations of this beloved drink to suit every taste. This white wine sangria is super refreshing and light, made with pinot grigio and a lavender simple syrup, frozen peaches, and fresh berries.

This delicious cocktail traditionally combines the best of summer by infusing wine, summer fruits, and soda water. Not only is it one of the most versatile drinks around, but it's also incredibly easy to make. So go ahead, grab a bottle of your favorite white wine, mix in some fresh fruit, and enjoy a glass of refreshing sangria. Cheers to good times and great drinks!
