Don’t worry– there’s also a printable and downloadable spring sangria recipe card with step-by-step instructions below! Anyways, for those of you who’ve followed by blog for a while now, you know my journey to “professional entertainer” (not the R-rated kind) has been a long and winding road. I definitely went through times during my eating disorder recovery when I didn’t want to see or interact with anyone, including my closest friends and family. One of my favorite things about spring is the notion of new beginnings– and I’m always so grateful that I was blessed with my own a few years ago. So, in the spirit of new beginnings, I dedicate this spring sangria recipe to anyone currently battling a mental illness. You’re not alone, and your new beginning will come, too!
White Peach Spring Sangria Recipe
And now for the spring sangria recipe! I used Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay and St. Germaine as the base and added in ripe peaches, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. You could also use Wente Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc or Wente Riverback Riesling for the base, as well. I’m partial to Wente because, as they say, “We don’t make wine because we have to, we do it because we love to.” And I just love that.

- 1 Wente Chardonnay
- 1 Cup St. Germain Liqueur
- 2-3 Fresh Peaches (sliced)
- 1 Pint Strawberries (sliced)
- 1-2 Handfuls of Raspberries
- 1-2 Handfuls of Blueberries
- 1-2 Handfuls of Blackberries
- Pour bottle of Chardonnay and 1 cup of St. Germaine liqueur into pitcher
- Add in fruit and stir together
- Let fruit soak for at least 2 hours
- Fill wine goblets with ice and pour in the white spring sangria
- Any dry white wine will work as the sangria base (I also recommend Wente Riverbank Riesling and Wente Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc)
- For a fruitier taste, let the sangria soak for anywhere between 2-8 hours
