Origin and history of Sangria

In ancient Rome it was very common for people to drink wine instead of water, due to the germs that were present in the contaminated water of the time.

Both children and adults drank wine on a daily basis, which was spiced to give different pleasant flavors. This custom spread throughout Europe, including Spain, where red wine began to be called sangria because of its intense red color.

In the XVIII and XIX centuries England and France began to prepare a kind of sangria containing French grapes, and also began to prepare sangria with white wine, sparkling wine and peaches, which was called zurra.

When entering the Middle Ages, spiced wine was already being drunk all over Europe, but it was in Andalusia where cut fruits were added for the first time.

Legend has it that some locals put cut fruit in a vat of low quality wine and let it stand for several days. They then noticed that the wine improved considerably and added sugar, cinnamon sticks and brandy, and were surprised to discover a drink of exquisite taste, color and smell.

Since then, Sangria has crossed the Iberian borders and has captivated thousands of people from different cultures who, thanks to its delicious taste and freshness, have been seduced by its unique flavor, adding fruits according to the country.
