The holiday season is about two seconds away and one of the leading questions you may have over the next few weeks with holiday entertaining may be, “What wine do I serve with that?”
Perhaps you become the envy of your friends and family this year as you exchange your classic choices of a French sparkling white or California dry red to a locally-crafted Michigan sangria.
Nestled into Shelby Township at 52588 Van Dyke, Sabrosa Sangria is a family-owned winery, specializing in custom-blended small batch sangrias. Since 2006, the owners of Sabrosa have been making their signature red sangria, Michigan Summergria. As its popularity quickly grew among their family and friends, soon came requests for white sangrias and other variations. Over the years they were making so much sangria they decided to open their own winery to share Sabrosa Sangria with everyone else!
Their flagship sangrias are themed after the Michigan seasons:
- Michigan Springria is a red sangria blended with tart cherry juice, accented with subtle citrus notes
- Michigan Summergria is fruity, crisp, and satisfying blend of red wine and six fruit juices
- Michigan Autumngria is a seasonally spiced sangria – think of a warm mulled wine – and yes, you can heat this one up!,
- Michigan Wintergria is a light white sangria, with notes of orange, pineapple and apricots
Their latest specialty release this 2017 holiday season is called Michigan Snow Day sangria: a blackberry-cranberry sangria, perfect for those festive pairings.
Sabrosa offers tasting flights so you can sample all of the sangrias at once. Customers can also try full glasses of sangria for their enjoyment. A complementary “pub mix” is available to nibble on, and beginning November 17 you can also purchase small cheese plates to pair with the sangrias.
