If you’ve been reading me for a while, you know that I love wine so much, I make it myself! I still buy wine to keep my wine fridge full at all times, and to enjoy with friends and family. I tend to migrate to the wines that catch my eye with a label, or something that’s uniquely special to that particular brand.
I also like to try unique wines to be inspired, and to get ideas on what kind of blending I’ll do with future batches of my homemade wine. This is one of the reasons I was very happy to be honored to try out Eppa SupraFruta Sangria – especially since it’s made from organically grown fruit.
Sangria is a typical beverage from Portugal and Spain, and normally consists of wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy. Doesn’t that sound intriguingly delicious?
I was fortunate enough to have my good Bloggy Friend (and now an awesome friend in real life), Michele from It’s a Dog’s Life over for dinner the other night, and she and her hubby were more than willing to taste test the Eppa SupraFruta and give their two-cents as well.
First up, the White Sangria, made with white wines, Mangosteen, Peach, Mango, Blood Orange Juices, and Natural Citrus Essences.
This sangria was a little on the sweeter side, and both Michele and I agreed there seemed to be something missing, but couldn’t quite put our fingers on it. Then we realized that with the strong peach flavor, what we felt was missing was the tiny little bubble of champagne.
It was like drinking a mimosa without the carbonation.
But I drank it anyway, because that’s how I roll. Michele’s hubby really liked the peach flavors and gave it a thumbs up. I did try it with champagne the next day and found it to be quite refreshing!
Next up was the Red Sangria, red wine with a blend of Pomegranate, Blueberry, Blood Orange, Acai Juices, and Citrus Essences.
On the dryer side, this satisfied our red wine palates as a more traditional Sangria. Michele and I both preferred this one over the white sangria (though I’ll admit when I tried it again the next day, I preferred the white sangria over this one – so obviously depending on the food you’re eating and your palate preference, both are a perfect choice!)
What I love most (besides both having heavenly aromas) are that they’re made with organically grown grapes, as well as organic super fruit juices and they’re rich in antioxidants – might as well get a little health benefit as you enjoy a glass of wine!
The simplicity of having sangria in a bottle so you don’t to have to mix the ingredients yourself is also a huge plus – just pour and enjoy!
Do you drink Sangria, and if so, do you have a favorite type?
