People in Mediterranean regions have been making and enjoying sangria for more than 2,000 years, since the Romans made their way through the Iberian Peninsula and planted vineyards along the way. Some version of sangria was introduced to the Americas in the early 1800s. Official accounts place the US introduction to sangria at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, when it was served at the Spanish Pavilion. Since then Americans have been quick to embrace this refreshing and full-bodied beverage. Traditional sangria was made with red wine, but newer recipes call for white wines, brandy and other fortified wines. However you make it, sangria is a delicious accompaniment to a meal. And now you can enjoy a pitcher of either white or red sangria for just $9 at Carmel Café & Wine Bar.
