When someone asked me to recommend a wine for Cinco de Mayo, I asked myself what do they drink in Mexico? Tequila and Cerveza (beer in Spanish) immediately come to mind so how can the WineGuy help?

Aha, Sangria is the wine to drink on Cinco de Mayo and red Sangria can be made with a hearty Spanish Grenache.


Bodegas Ateca 2012 Atteca Old Vines
Calatayud, Spain $15
100% Garnacha (Grenache)
Bold and fruity wine ideal for Sangria but solid drinking wine on its own.
