Making a Delicious Sangria with CK Mondavi for the 4th of July

This past weekend my family celebrated the 4th of July early by getting together down at the Frio River!  It was a fun time for everyone and we had so much fun floating the river, playing dominoes, dancing, cooking out, and of course drinking some Sangria!  We made a basic Sangria with some CK Mondavi Chardonnay and Blonde Five!

The CK Mondavi Chardonnay is a medium-bodied wine with a hint of oak.  Aromas of lemon and citrus combined with flavors of apple and pear lead to a delightfully crisp finish.  This made it absolutely perfect for our Sangria!  The Blonde Five is a light wine with aromas of honeysuckle and pear.  Luscious flavors of baked apples, honey, and lemon zest give this “blonde” a refreshing finish on the palate.  The fruity undertones in both of these mixed perfectly with the fruit in our Sangria!

As for making the perfect Sangria I don’t know if there is any recipe that doesn’t work.  For our Sangria we just took fruit we had on hand and mixed it with the delicious CK Mondavi wines!  We had a lot of peaches and strawberries that we mixed with a cup of tequila and the CK Mondavi Chardonnay and Blonde Five.  We let it sit in a cooler for a couple hours and it was perfect!  With Sangrias there are a lot of different ways you can make it but this made a very light and delicious Sangria that everyone was begging for more!

We decided to grill some Fajitas to go with our Sangria which was a delicious meal that complemented the sangria perfectly!  We also made some queso and guacamole to go with the Fajitas and for dessert we had some delicious grilled peaches over ice cream!

 After dinner there were a lot of games and dancing!  We also made another similar Sangria with the CK Mondavi Scarlet Five and the Cabernet Sauvignon because everyone loved the first Sangria so much!  This had a much deeper flavor but it was still perfect for our family celebration!

My favorite part of CK Mondavi wines is that they support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund!  A percentage of each bottle sold between May – August is donated to Intrepid Fallen Heroes (up to $50,000).  Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), an organization that supports the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families.  Funded entirely by public donations, IFHF serves U.S. military personnel wounded or killed in service to our nation and their families. For more information, visit www.fallenheroesfund.org.

CK Mondavi is the perfect 4th of July wine. Not only is it the only wine in this price point to be 100% American made & grown, but a percentage of sales goes to supporting veterans.  CK Mondavi is run by the legendary Napa Valley wine icon, Peter Mondavi Sr., a World War II veteran.

Another very interesting fact about CK Mondavi is the Owner Marc Mondavi was born on the 4th of July and 2014 marks his 60th birthday. CK Mondavi is the only American made/grown wine in the “supermarket wine under $10” category. It was established in the 1940s, CK Mondavi remains a family- owned business that has thrived for four generations to produce fine wines.  CK Mondavi wine is sold nationwide in every US state.

I love that CK Mondavi is American Made and this is why I was so glad to share these delicious wines with my family!
