What’s a Summer Weekend without Sangria?

Sangria is a great summer time beverage. Fruity and full of life Sangria provides a delightful drink for the patio or porch.  Sangrias can be made with red or white wine. We have discovered Sangria recipes and posted them on the Wine Trail Traveler recipe section.

Hint: Especially with hot weather drink plenty of water when enjoying alcoholic beverages.
