Over the past couple of years, I have really developed a love for wine. I was watching regular episodes of Winelibrarytv.com and learning about different varieties. I love a good Malbec from Spain or Argentina or a nice crisp Savignon Blanc from Washington or Australia. However, I am also a wine lover on a strict budget. On more than one occasion I have brought home a wine that was less than stellar. My solution is to use it for Sangria. You can’t go wrong with traditional red Sangria. Just cut up some citrus, add wine and ice and you have a party. Set up some tapas and you are all set.
