How many grapes does it take to make one bottle of wine? Would you believe that you need 30 to 40 pounds of grapes for just one bottle? That’s more than 32-hundred grapes! So, how many bottles do you need to make sangria? We recently stopped by interior designer Janelle Carda’s personal vineyard to learn how to she grows grapes. And as long as we were there, we also gave her wine a taste using one of her favorite sangria recipes.
How to make the sangria:
Wash and quarter 16 ounces of strawberries and add sugar to bring out the flavor. Add 14 ounces of rinsed blueberries. Add a bottle of the wine of your choice followed by equal parts sparkling water. Stir and enjoy. It is best if you let it sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours but who can wait that long?
