I made this sangria in collaboration with Malbec Bay, founded by Mercedes and Victoria, two sisters from Argentina. They’ve brought their love of Argentinian wines to their new home in Tampa Bay. Hence, Malbec Bay!
Malbec Bay Sangria came about when St. Pete Gals and Malbec Bay co-hosted the first-ever Fiesta Tampa Bay. I wanted to sponsor the event out of pride for my culture and as a fellow Hispanic businesswoman. Mercedes, Alexia (founder of St. Pete Gals), and I chatted about how I could contribute, and that’s when I decided to make a traditional sangria. But as I was perusing the wine aisle, I realized I had an opportunity to contribute additional support to a fellow small business as well. I left the store and messaged Mercedes about purchasing Malbec from her. I was inspired to create something unique for Fiesta Tampa Bay and all of the small businesses that were uniting to celebrate our Hispanic Heritage and share our culture with the community.
Two things to note; Malbec Bay delivers to Pinellas or Hillsborough County. Use code: domesticgourmet10 for 10% off your purchase. If outside the delivery area, Mercedes recommends looking for Malbec from Catena Zapata. They’re a world-renowned winery said to be the best in Argentina since 1902.
