Looking for the perfect cherry blueberry white wine sangria made with white wine and fresh cherries?

Sangria is one of my all time favorites. It’s wonderful to keep you cool in the summer and it always makes parties a hit.

This white wine sangria is wonderful on a hot summer day, or really just anytime you’re craving a refeshing, light summer drink.

I’m so lucky to live in the heart of the Okanagan Valley, surrounded by orchards and wineries. It’s honestly the perfect combination.

I made this sangria with fresh yellow and red cherries, and blueberries right off the bush.

There are plenty of other sangria recipes out there, but this one is made extra special from the light white wine, cherries and blueberries, with a burst of fresh lemon and orange.

This berry recipe only takes minutes to make, so you can enjoy it right away. If you want a mellower flavor, just let it sit in the fridge for a few hours.

During the winter holidays, I enjoy our classic vodka, cranberry and sprite cocktail, but this fresh white wine sangria is my summer go-to.

What wine should I use for a white sangria?

I use a pinot grigio or a sauvignon blanc white wine, but any dry, crisp, unoaked white wine will work well.

Your kids may be jealous of this incredible fruity drink, but just set aside some fruit and Sprite to create their own mocktail version!

Here’s what you’ll need to make this fresh summer sangria:

  • white wine

  • cherries
  • blueberries
  • lemon
  • orange

How to make a fruity white wine sangria

The first step in making this tasty sangria is cutting up the fresh fruit. First, pit the cherries and cut in half. Next, cut the lemon and orange into wedges.

Mix all of the ingredients in a large pitcher. Since this sangria is so pretty, make sure to use a glass or clear plastic pitcher to show off the colorful fruits!

Refrigerate the sangria, covered, overnight or at least four hours until chilled.

Serve cold and with ice, if desired.

Can you substitute other fruit?

I used cherries and blueberries in this recipe, but you can substitute strawberries, raspberries, or peaches, and it’s delicious!
