There’s sangria, and now there’s Sangria. The European Parliament passed legislation in January establishing that true sangria comes from Spain or Portugal. Moving forward, if packaged versions of this popular mix of wine, brandy, sugar, chopped fruits, etc. come from other nations, they will have to clearly state their origin, as in Australian Sangria. So now the fruity summer quencher commands the same degree of geographic origin as Champagne. However, based on similar international protection bestowed on Port, it is likely that few Americans will much care (if they even notice).
