What Wine To Use In Sangria

We’re using red wine for this sangria, but it does matter what wine you pick for this drink.

We prefer Granache for a red sangria – it’s an inexpensive and delicious red wine from Spain that isn’t too overpowering, peppery, or bold.

Pinot noir or Rioja blends also work – look for bottles under $20 that you enjoy drinking on their own – but don’t use an expensive bottle since we’re adding more to the recipe.
