1st Sangria Saturday!

Welcome to our 1st Sangria Saturday!

Be sure to keep an eye out for future Sangria Saturdays. 

Spring & Summer Tips for serving wine:

  • Keep your glass chilled with frozen berries or grapes rather than ice that will melt & dilute your drink.

  • Santa Maria Peach Tea add just an ounce or 2 of Santa Maria to ice tea for a easy peachy tea. Garnish with fresh slice peaches or raspberries.

  • Add a slice of orange, lemon or lime to Schade Creeks Friends or Santa Maria Rosie’s Rose

  • When making sangria with fresh fruit freeze the fruit first to keep it chilled.

  • When making wine spritzers use lemon lime soda or ginger ale for sweeter drinks, & tonic water or club soda for dryer options.

Cooking Tip: Marinate steak, chicken or shrimp in La Vida Loca’s Jalapeno Raising wine & grill. 

There are several varieties with tropical names & labels:

  • Santa Maria Frontenac Gris

  • Breezy Hills Cabana Boy

  • Breezy Hills Tres Hermanas

  • Schade Creek Wine O’Clock Somewhere

  • Van Wijk Calle 31

  • Van Wijk El Caribe
