It’s no secret I’m a huge lover of the wine. Remember when I went to Alt Summit and I was caught holding a wine glass in every photo? That was fun. So when BzzAgent released a campaign to try Frontera wines at a discount, I was, like, all over it. And of course I was selected. They must read my blog.
First of all, Frontera wines are wallet friendly. They retail at around $5 a bottle, which means you can buy plenty of all those parties you host. And my local Ralph’s (Kroger) store had them on special for 2 for $7. That’s a pretty fantastic deal. Second, I admit I’m not a huge wine connoisseur – I simply like what I like – but I’ve found I really like Chilean wines, and Frontera was no exception. I’m not a huge fan of red wines but the Frontera Pinot Noir tastes fresh and not too heavy (my major complaint with red wines). I love sweet wines and their Moscato is sharp and delicious. A new favorite, for sure!
One of my favorite drinks at The Disneyland Resort is their sangria, which I’ve never tried to make before, so I thought I’d put my new Frontera wines to the test and make a couple batches of Sangria. I’ll be honest with you – I didn’t like how the Moscato sangria turned out. It was way too sweet. And I’m not going to lie to you and tell you a recipe is good when it’s not. BUT, the red sangria turned out Ah-maaaaaaaaay-zing (if I do say so myself).
1 750ml bottle of Frontera Pinot Noir red wine
1/2 cup Triple Sec
1/4 cup lemon or lime juice
1/2 cup club soda
1 red apple
In a pitcher, mix the following: wine, Triple Sec, and lemon or lime juice. Cut the orange in half and squeeze in the juice from half the orange. Cut the other half into thin round slices and place in the sangria. Cut the apple into slices and place in the sangria, along with the mixed berries. Stir well. Right before serving, mix in the club soda to give your sangria some sparkle!
As for the Frontera Moscato? It’s perfect just the way it is, but I recommend floating a few berries in your glass. It will make you feel very fancy.
