Planning a Labor Day Picnic? Remember the Sangria!

Why not add a Sangria to your beverages for this Labor Day weekend?

Savoy-Lee Winery Sangria

Sangria can be purchased by the bottle at some wineries; other wineries produce wines that can be used for making your own Sangria. Sangria already bottled is quick and easy for a picnic (make sure you have a corkscrew handy.) Several wineries offer recipes for making Sangria. If you have time you may want to create your own special Sangria.

Below are four easy recipes from wineries in Colorado, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Enjoy!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
