Does a gallon bottle of Carlo Rossi Sangria need to be refrigerated after opening?
Answer From Expert Roger Bohmrich MW

This is a party wine. My suggestion is to keep this wine in the refrigerator from the moment you bring it home. Your best bet is to invite your friends over on a hot summer night and serve them this wine well chilled and mixed with slices of orange and lemon. You might even consider adding a shot or two of gin or brandy along with club soda.
