I’ve shared a few times about the fig tree in our front yard. We’ve made lots of delicious things with the figs we grow (mostly some strawberry-fig jam) but I know that there is so much more that we can do with these delicious fruits. This summer, I decided to try and mix them into a yummy sangria.
Apple & Fig Sangria
This sangria is easy to make and will get better with time as it ages in the fridge. Figs have an interesting look and texture, but they have a nice subtle flavor.
- 750mL bottle Ca' Momi Pinot Noir
- 4 Figs, sliced
- 1 Apple, chopped
- 750mL Cranberry Raspberry Juice
- In a pitcher, combine the wine and juice
- Mix in the sliced fruit
- Store in a fridge for at least 4 hours to chill and let the flavors combine
For my sangria, I used Ca’ Momi Pinot Noir. This Napa Valley wine includes flavors of cherry, chocolate, and spices.
Ca’ Momi sent me some wine to try out and I can’t wait to try out the other two flavors as well. One of these is the Napa Valley Chardonnay. The flavors included in this wine are fruity – mandarin orange zest, pineapple and pears. This wine sounds absolutely decadent and will be perfect to enjoy with a summer dinner salad.
I was also provided with the Ca’ Momi Bianco Di Napa. This white blend features chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, reisling, semillon, and pino grigio grapes. I really like white blends as they take the best of so many flavors and combine them into an amazing glass of wine.
I look forward to trying out the Chardonnay and white blend (plus finish enjoying the sangria that is still in my fridge).
What type of wine is your favorite? Have you tried making them into a sangria before?
I was provided with Ca’ Momi wine for this recipe and review. All opinions are my own.
This sounds delicious! I’ve never attempted to make my own Sangria! Thanks for sharing! Hope mine turns out lol!
Oh yum! I love Sangria!
Not so sure about the fig, but the apple sangria part sounds awesome! ;) Haha, no seriously.. I bet it’s one of those crazy combos that pairs perfectly together.. I may have to try it for my next girls night!

Huh… I would have never thought to use fresh figs in a sangria! With the apples, I bet this would be fabulous in the fall too. :)
