Traditionally, sangria is made by infusing red wine with citrus, berries, and other fresh fruit. White wine sangria, however, is a lighter take on the usual red wine sangria and it pairs well with crisp, tart fruits like Pittman & Davis Orchard Fresh Apples, and Pittman & Davis Comice Pears. Both of these fruits pair well with Moscato wine and will combine to make your white sangria a praiseworthy favorite.
