How about some Greek wine ? 

   

I am a big fan of Carlo Rossi 's Sangria . It is one of the best wines on the
cheap side that I have ever tried.
CARLO ROSSI  SANGRIA
I agree with the winemaker's claim that it is a wine "with a whole lot of personality"
and that it "goes especially well with spicy foods" (but I acknowledge that these are
slightly generic statements that could potentially be made for a wide variety of wines...)

Let's drink! Why are we waiting for the lamps? Only an inch of daylight left.
Lift down the large cups, my friends, the painted ones;
for wine was given to men by the son of Semele and Zeus
to help them forget their troubles. Mix one part of water to two of wine,
pour it in up to the brim, and let one cup push the other along...
