Portugal has been steadily rising in fame in the wine world. Each of the 14 wine regions has its own personality, which can be tasted in the wines produced there. Bacalhôa Vinhos de Portugal, S.A. is a modern winemaking company which can be found in no less than seven wine regions in Portugal. This has allowed the company to take advantage of the specialities of each region to offer consumers a wide range of wines for a variety of palates.
From this vast wine portfolio comes a steady favourite for summer refreshment: Casal Mendes Sangria. This sparkling beverage takes the joy of red wine and adds tangy notes of citrus along with a touch of cinnamon for that extra note of delicate spice. This wine-based beverage uses Tinta Roriz and Aragonez grapes to craft a fine red wine. Then the lemon, lime, orange, cinnamon, and a slight amount of carbonation are added to result in a fun, refreshing drink that is perfect to cool off in the summer sun.
At just 7% alcohol per volume, Casal Mendes Sangria is perfect to enjoy while at a barbeque or picnic with friends. Sweet without being cloying, try this either chilled or on ice. It marries perfectly with light dishes or good conversation.

Aliança was founded in 1927 under Domingos Silva and Ângelo Neves' leadership. The winery is located in Sangalhos, Anadia county, in the Bairrada region (between Coimbra and Porto). Characteristic of the region is the Atlantic ocean proximity and the ensuing maritime winds blowing the on the flatland and the regular rainfall. This does not prevent the local cellars to elaborate great wines in Portugal's most prominent wine region.More about the Winery
