Spain. Ah, the memories… Hills, sleepless nights, ocean. Seeing the Basque flag in the Basque Country, warming my Unzueta blood. Oh, and the food! My food memories wander to tapas and jamon. Wine from La Rioja, and of course, sangria. There are many versions of sangria. Everyone has their own recipe and what fruits to add. Is it just me, or do you love the sangria fruit too?
Similar to “champagne,” the word “sangria” is now restricted under European law. I wish I were kidding… If it is labeled “sangria” it must come from Spain or Portugal. This is a new law, by the way. It just started in January 2014. I, personally, am in complete agreement of protecting something that holds history, culture, and family. There are non-alcoholic versions of sangria made with wine grapes instead of wine. The white sangria version that’s popular in many hip restaurants made from white wine is not traditional despite whatever anyone tells you. “Sangria” means “bloodletting” because of it’s deep, ruby red color like blood.
Sangria is typically made with red wine, fruit, brandy, and some sort of spritzer like Sprite or 7-Up. Lolailo Sangria is deliciously sweet, red in color. Great for summer parties, BBQs, or a bridal shower with the all the girls. It has a low alcohol content, 6%, and made from a 70-year-old recipe. This would be a good wine for the semi-sweet wine drinker or social drinker. It is no wonder why this wine has been named a “hot brand” by many reviewers. Also, you can’t beat the price for 1.5 liter bottle. Buy a few of bottles of Lolailo Sangria and pour into a large beverage container for summer BBQs or outdoor entertaining, and ENJOY!
