Sangria is a wine with a rich history with a lot to offer to wine enthusiasts from every walk of life. Sangria dates all the way back to the middle ages. Wine was big back then because everyone was afraid to drink the water out of fear of getting sick. This made wine the most popular brand of drink back then and it still remains somewhat true today.
- The fine-wine cognoscenti might sometimes turn their vino-sniffing noses up at the thought of sangria, a combination of wine and fruit that aims for refreshment and fun over complexity and haughtiness.
- Sangria’s origins probably date back to the Middle Ages, during a time when water was unhealthy to drink and drinking fermented beverages carried a much lower risk of causing illness.
- The word “sangria” is much more serious than the drink itself: it comes from the Latin word for blood, thanks to the original sangria’s reddish hue, a result of the red wine first used to make it.
““”Sangria” is the Spanish term for a mix of fruit and wine that became popular in Europe in the subsequent centuries, and the drink emerged on the American culinary radar when it was served in New York at the Spanish World Area during the 1964 World’s Fair.””
