Could I interest you in a glass of Passionate Sangria? 

Passionate Sangria

This past weekend was my first time ever trying Sangria. My mom told me she enjoys them in the summer and said they are always popular to serve at parties. After making this recipe for Passionate Sangria, I can see why people like them so much! This recipe was refreshing, a little bit sweet and a whole lot of flavour! This particular recipe combines the flavour of exotic fruit mingled with a tangy citrus taste.

I learned that Sangria is a wine punch that is often served in Spain, Portugal and Argentina. It’s name is derived from the Spanish word for blood, “sangre” because of its dark red colour. Since it’s Spanish it makes sense to use a red wine from Spain right? I made this delicious drink with a bottle of Solaz Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon which comes from the Osborne Estate.

I wasn’t familiar with the Osborne Estate either, but I found it intriguing to learn it was founded in 1772 and has a vineyard that covers more than 2,500 acres in the Tierra de Castilla region of Spain. That region is known for producing quality wines thanks to a rich clay soil and unique microclimate.

I’m planning to pick up another bottle of Solaz Tempranillo Cabarnet Sauvignon at our liquor store. I want to try it out on it’s own too. It was perfect in the sangria, but sometimes I just like to have a glass of wine.
