A good, reasonably priced (under $10) white Sangria? Since we are having our reception in the church hall, we can’t have anything harder than wine or sangria served. The red is going to be Cinco Anillos from the Jorge Posada Foundation. The best I have ever had from a bottle! Plus, the proceeds go to the foundation and the price is under $10. We would like a white and red, but we don’t know of any white brands.

Sangria isn’t a type of wine. It’s a punch-style drink made from wine, brandy, triple sec or cointreau, juice, and chopped fruit.

Yes, and it’s typically made with red, not white.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive white, lately I’ve been enjoying a nice Moscato from Australia, by Deakin Estates. We got it for around $6-7, and it’s very tasty! A bit on the sweet side, but not cloying. There’s also a really good Pacific Rim Riesling from Oregon I’ve had recently, and a medium-sweet Satinela Rioja by Marques de Caceres (if you’d like something Spanish).
You may want to think about balancing your wine options in terms of something sweeter and something drier, too, as well as having a white and a red.

The best deal would be the boxed wines at Target, their Sangria is reeaaaallly good! And you get 4 bottles of Sangria in one box for $17, or 2 bottles in a box for $11. The boxes are also very pretty. 🙂

@LaurenKK: I can’t purchase wine at my Target. Live in NJ and it is not sold in regular stores, only liquor stores.

Sangria can be made with white wine too. OP, does it have to be from a bottle? I’ve seen a lot of recipes on Pinterest for white sangria that look amaaaaaaaazing.

@likelimeade: Well, we prefer it from a bottle, but I guess it doesn’t have to be. Would I be able to put it in a pitcher?

We did boxed wine (much improved over the years) and put them in these dispensers to “disguise” them. It fit perfectly with our outdoor rustic theme: https://www.etsy.com/listing/122270805/box-wine-barrel-dispenser-with-letters
