02: Eppa SuperFruit Sangria, the first certified organic superfruit sangria, is now available in multiple cities throughout the U.S. since first launched in Florida in the fall of 2011. "Eppa SuperFruit Sangria is enjoying growth for many reasons,” explained John Gomez, co-founder of Eppa Wine Company. “The sangria and sweet red blend wine category are hot right now and given the premium quality, organic and antioxidant values this appeals to consumers on many levels, but most importantly it just simply tastes great" he added. The palate-pleasing wine is created by blending organically grown Mendocino Cabernet and Syrah. The grapes are then blended with a unique combination of organic superfruit juices including pomegranates and blueberries as well as Mediterranean blood oranges, acai berries and natural citrus essences.
