What could be more fun than making your party guests smile with a selection of deliciously fresh made wine cocktails? Well, Cyd Converse has recipes to do just that. Why not start off by making a batch of her refreshingly festive, easy-to-make, Classic Red Wine Sangria? It’s in a classic all by itself. Just slice up a bunch of fresh, juicy plums and oranges, then add Sutter Home Pinot Noir. Its rich layers of ripe berry flavors, violet scents, and hint of spice make it one of Cyd’s favorite fruit-forward blends to complete her homemade Classic Red Wine Sangria.
