People in Los Angeles appreciate good wine.
Sangria is one of the many types of wine popular in L.A. Sangria is a mixed alcoholic drink from Spain. Red sangria is made with red wine, and white sangria is made with white wine.
Sangria is soo popular that it even gets its own day. Every December 20th is National Sangria Day.
Technically, you should celebrate the day by drinking sangria, but any wine will do. In fact, any alcoholic beverage consumed responsibly is always a great way to celebrate.
Here are three great places where you can celebrate National Sangria Day.
