I admit I was skeptical when a bottle of Eppa Superfruit Sangria landed on my porch.
Visions of bad wine coolers lumbered about unpleasantly in my head.
But Eppa Sangria is far from that. In fact, it’s pretty wonderful tasting.
It’s a complete sangria in a bottle that’s also certified organic.
Organically grown Mendocino Cabernet and Syrah are blended with organic fruit juices that include pomegranates, blueberries, Mediterranean blood oranges, and acai berries.
Pour it over ice and garnish with a slice of your favorite fruit. A 5-ounce serving has 120 calories.
The full-bodied wine varietals balance out the fruit juices by adding nice structure. Acai and pomegranate lend subtle tartness to round things out. It’s surprisingly much more complex tasting than I thought it would be.
A 750ml bottle is about $12. Find it at Whole Foods.
It may be autumn, but a chilled glass of sangria is bound to keep you in a summery state of mind.
