Your Favorite Wine Cocktails, Ranked

Fall wine cocktails

There’s something special about the seasons changing. It’s the perfect time to try a new wine or get out of your comfort zone and try a new wine cocktail! We asked our Bright Cellars’ community, “what’s your favorite fall wine cocktail?” and here are the results.


  • 35.1% of respondents chose mulled wine.
  • 27.6% of respondents said sparkling sangria.
  • 14% of respondents prefer red wine hot chocolate 
  • 13.3% of respondents said they reach for a Bishop cocktail. 
  • 10.1% of respondents chose an apple spritzer.

We also asked our Bright Cellars Instagram community and got some honest responses that made us chuckle: 

  • Definitely sparkling sangria!
  • I skip the wine cocktails and let the wine speak for itself! 🍷
