Winking Owl Sangria has delightful red fruit notes with a hint of citrus. Pairs well with seafood, grilled veggies, and Spanish cuisine. Great on its own but even better with fruit added. I like to add slices of orange and a mix of berries. The frozen mixed tropical fruit from Aldi with peaches, mango, and pineapple is a great easy mix to throw in and it cools down the wine as it thaws! Perfect for a summer evening.
