Live, Love, Sangria!
Follow our story as we start a business using our home sangria recipe...

We reached a major milestone in sangria history last week.

Tuesday, May 20th we bottled our first official samples. It felt as though we were waiting for a baby to be born. We patiently paced back and forth as the bottling line was prepped and our formula was blended. Finally when it was time the sweet aroma of sangria flowed throughout the bottling room as the line came to life and bottles began to fill.

To share this excitement we’ve posted some pictures below. I hope you enjoy them and can feel the same excitement we are experiencing.

I can’t thank everyone enough for their support & encouragement over the last few months. It has motivated our team to keep pushing forward.

With our samples in hand we now need to make retailers and distributors as excited about the product as you are. If you know any retailers or distributors who you think would be good candidates for carrying our product please let us know. We need all the help we can get in building our network.

We want to hear from you. Please leave us a comment below…

    This is great news, it’s another sign that Senor Sangria will be attending our wedding! Can’t wait to see this on the shelf of my corner store…

  • Willie

    Congrats! By the way May 20th was Trini’s Bday so you couldn’t have picked a finer day. Everyone that came to Derek’s party was raving about the Sangria. We wish you all the best! Look into Total Wine in Hackensack. They keep prices pretty low and draw heavy foot traffic. You should also look at Shoppers Vineyard in Clifton.

    Congratulations. Great achievement. Your dedication, vision and enthusiasm will continue to be the forces behind this and your future successes. I know, as a sangria lover, this product will set the standard for all sangrias in the market place.

  • Deborah Ekstrom

    I am excited for you, it is wonderful to see your dreams coming to fruition.
    Sangria is my passion! I have lived in Madrid Spain and sangria is like the nectar that runs through their veins! I currently live in Arizona and there is definitely a market for your product here. It is a summer staple and we’re “HOT” all year round. Try the Trader Joe Stores, AJ’s Fine foods, they have their collection of wines… Lots of Spanish inspired restaurants out here. Best of luck. I can hardly wait!

  • Steve

    Congratulations to you both – the sangria is awesome!!

  • Roach

    Rick! It’s great to see the progress you’ve made since we last talked. I’m sure seeing the first bottle come off the line was a wonderful feeling. The wife and I just purchased a new sangria service set, so we’re looking forward to getting into a bottle of Senor Sangria. As Deborah E stated, there’s a huge potential market out here in AZ and probably in the Southwest in general. Good luck and keep us posted.

  • Lillian & Jose

    Hi, Ricky





  • Oscar

    ¡Felicidades, Rick! We’ll be having plenty of Senor Sangria parties in Southern California! Can’t wait to see your product in SoCal! We are proud of you. Saludos y un fuerte abrazo te mandamos. om

  • Chuck

    So happy to hear about all the progress that’s been made in getting Senor Sangria launched.

    God knows there’s a frustrating shortage of sangrias in U.S. markets and the debut of your product will, I’m confident, do much to introduce Americans to “the sangria experience” and, I expect, convert many, many of them into genuine sangria lovers!

  • Brian

    It’s awesome to know someone that follows through with thir dream, Rick! I can’t wait to tout your Sangria out in PA this summer! Actually, you’ll be putting added pressure to speed the climb up the learning curve of my new smoker! I want to do your Sangria justice! I’ll be tinkering with spice blends, and hope to come up with the perfect compliment to post! Also, my local liquor store can’t wait to try it. They are sangria fanatics!

  • Jose A. Jorge

    I’m excited to read about you and I wish to taste your Sangria very soon.Do you think we will get it in the New Jersey liquor stores?…Please let me know…Congratulations and good luck in your New product.God bless your business.
