What types of wine are best for sangria?
When it comes to choosing a wine for your sangria, there are no hard-and-fast rules. Any type of red or white wine can be used, depending on your preference. That said, there are a few general guidelines you can follow to help you choose the best wine for your sangria.
If you’re looking for a traditional sangria recipe, Spanish red wines are typically used. Rioja and Tempranillo are two of the most popular choices. These full-bodied wines can stand up to the addition of fruit and other ingredients, without being overpowered.
If you’re looking for a lighter sangria, you may want to try a white wine. Vinho verde, Riesling, and Moscato are all good choices. These wines are lower in alcohol, which can be a good choice if you’re serving sangria to a crowd.
No matter what type of wine you choose, be sure to use a quality wine. Since sangria is typically served over ice, cheaper wines can taste watered down. A quality wine will help ensure that your sangria is flavorful and enjoyable.
