*What is the best red wine for sangria?
As we like to say around here, would you drink it on its own? Then that’s a great start. But if you need something more specific, a traditional route would be a Spanish or Portuguese red. Something bright and fruity, in particular. Here, the recipe uses Grenache (Garnacha in Spanish) for a stunning result. Tempranillo, another Spanish red is great. If your tastes wander farther afield, Italian Primitivo or Californian Zinfandel would do nicely, as would an Argentine Bonarda.
