Holiday Sangria Recipe

Here's a lovely holiday beverage recipe that comes highly recommended from our tasting room manager, Tessa Olsen.

"This recipe was inspired by my love of bubbly wine," Tessa says. "It's definitely richer and drier than a summer sangria  — which I prefer."

And this year at Thanksgiving, Tessa is serving her sangria with the optional cider ice cubes. Yum.

Give this sangria a try and let us know what you think!


  • 1 bottle of Hunt Country Bubbly Cabernet Franc
  • 1/2 cup Hunt Country Cream Sherry
  • 1 apple or pear, cut into chunks
  • 2 oranges, one sliced with peel on and the other juiced
  • Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, pomegranate or cranberries
  • Optional: real maple syrup or honey to sweeten
  • Optional: sparkling water, ginger ale or ginger beer
  • Ice cubes for serving (cider ice cubes add another subtle layer of flavor)


  1. Place all fruit and orange juice into a clear serving pitcher.
  2. Pour Bubbly Cabernet Franc and Cream Sherry over the fruit and gently stir.
  3. If you use the optional ingredients, add to your liking.
  4. Refrigerate for 4 hours, then serve in individual glasses with ice.
  5. Enjoy!
