Andrea Folino's Signature Sangria
A word from Andrea...
"We opened Folino Estate in Nov 2015 and set out to create a destination winery with the feelings of traveling to Italy without the plane ticket. Our style of wines tend to be drier, more European style and are meant to pair with a delicious meal and good company. When the pandemic hit, we were faced with challenges we'd never seen before in our business. It really forced us to get even more creative and think outside the box. We loved being the escape to our guests busy, everyday lives and we really strategized how to continue bringing the Folino Estate experience to everyone at their homes. The most popular idea we can up with was to package our sangrias in a way that allowed our guests to recreate them at home. I always feel when faced with challenges, always look for the positives. Had we never been hit with this pandemic, I'm not sure my sangria kits would have ever been realized.
I designed my sangria kits to highlight the flavors of each season. They include a bottle of our wine that I feel best pairs with the chosen fruit flavors. My sangrias are made to highlight the profiles of the wines first, followed by the notes of the fruit on the back of the palate. You'll also get the bottles of simple syrups for the flavoring and garnishes other than the fresh fruits. By using simple syrups, you can make the sangrias to drink right away rather than muddling fresh fruits and waiting hours for the flavors to meld. You can choose either one or two flavor boxes as well. We worked hard on the design of the sangria kit boxes as we wanted to also make them a beautiful and unique gifting option. They're perfect for a special night in or for hosting a gathering!"
