One of the best parts of Hudson Valley culture blogging is getting invited back to places you’ve written about.
So naturally when I heard about Robibero’s Summertime Sangria Festival, I made sure to add it to my upstate New York summertime schedule.
The Sangria Festival is more than just an excuse to drink (although that’s always been enough for me) it’s also a chance for armature mixologists to try their hand with wines, fruits, herbs and even spices to concoct some traditional and non-traditional sangria flavors.
The festival (well mini-fest) consists of several stations where you can taste or have a glass of a different flavor. Some are from an artisanal sangria recipe book while others are made by Robibero Winery patrons for the annual summer sangria contest.
Each year sangria festival goers get to sample the entries brought by their fellow attendees and vote on which one makes you shout, ‘*La Duda!’
*That’s Spanish for ‘I’ll second that!’
