We were excited to create Eppa SupraFruta Sangria because it was something we honestly wanted to drink ourselves. We know the "Sangria King" can't be at every party, so we set out to share something with the world that we enjoyed drinking and even he would be proud to serve, right from the bottle.
We have taken great care in selecting superior ingredients – wines from Mendocino County, a part of California's North Coast wine growing region, and organic fruit juices. The real fruits help create the refreshing taste that is key to a good sangria, and ours includes pomegranate, blueberry, Mediterranean blood orange and acai. The recipe is blended for superior taste, just as every aspect of Eppa is focused on delivering a delicious sangria experience that will perfectly complement your social gatherings.

About North CoastView a map of North Coast wineries
Beyond Napa and Sonoma in the north you find a couple of other counties producing great wine. Among these are Mendocino and Lake County. The northernmost California winegrowing regions, these two counties are right above Napa and Sonoma, geographically. Yet, wine-wise they are very different – both from their southern neighbors and from each other.
Notable FactsMendocino has a high amount of organic vintners and vines. The first winery to settle here was Fetzer, which practices organic viticulture and holds some of the most vineyard land in the area. Mendocino has many pockets of micro-climates while Lake County, being smaller in size, is less diverse climactically. As for the grapes, Chardonnay is the most popular in both counties, but there are also some excellent Sauvignon Blancs, particularly in the Lake County. In red wine, Zinfandel leads the way, followed by Rhone Blends and Petite Sirah. The reds in both counties are complex and sumptuous. Anderson Valley is a sub-AVA of Mendicino and is quite well known for its excellent cool climate, producing the delicious Roederer Estate sparkling wines and some wonderful cool-climate Syrah.
The most famous of the California wine regions is Napa Valley, and these wines are certainly outstanding – but it's not as broad and diverse as its larger neighbor, Sonoma County. Down south, Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley is well-known for its Rhône blends, as well as cool-climate varieties like Pinot and Chardonnay. The Central Coast, the largest California AVA, has many different microclimates that lead to a wide range of wines with many sub-AVAs.
