What better way to celebrate the day before the Winter Solstice than to honor the summery drink we enjoy all year here at Willow Creek Winery – Sangria. December 20th is National Sangria Day.

We feature a rotating blend of our exclusive red and white sangria made from great wines, sweet fruit nectars and pure pressed juices. Our sangria is available to purchase by the glass, flight or in Grolsch or Growler bottles year-round. If you buy a Grolsch or Growler you can bring the bottle back and get it refilled – making the purchase not only wallet-friendly, but also eco-friendly.

Speaking of those Growlers and Grolshes, did you know that these bottles are not just refillable, but they are collectable. Every year we change the label color. Did you pick up this year’s special Blue Label? Come in before we launch the 2024 label.

A reminder our sangria’s shelf-life is 5 days, and it needs to stay refrigerated, so come in this weekend for your Christmas celebrations.
