While the origin of red sangria

is not precisely known, it is commonly thought to have been created to enhance the taste of low-quality wine. Wine of the past was often subpar in quality and needed to be blended with other ingredients to make it more palatable. By adding fresh fruits and other flavors to the wine, its unpleasant characteristics could be masked, resulting in a more enjoyable beverage.
