Recipe: Strawberry Basil Sangria

It's always a good time for Strawberry Basil Sangria. Jaymi Heimbuch

Made with Cline Cellar's Cool Climate Chardonnay, this sangria is crisp and refreshing. I added basil to this recipe for a few reasons but mostly to give the drink a clean finish. And unlike most sangria, where the recipe is designed to cover up bad wine, this is quite the opposite. It was designed to showcase it. Enjoy!
