About Red Sangria

Serve in a Wine Glass
Red Sangria is a beverage made with red wine and fruit juice. Most commonly associated with Spain, red Sangria is the most typical style of Sangria; there is also a white version.

As Sangria is associated with Spain, many recipes call for a young red Rioja as the wine of choice. However, any light to medium-bodied red with forward fruit and light tannins (such as a Gamay or inexpensive Pinot Noir or blended red) can be used. The wine is mixed with orange and red grape juice as well as small bits of fresh lemons, oranges and apples. It is usually served in a pitcher and serves as a great thirst quencher on a hot summer's day.
