Homemade Strawberry Borgoña recipe

Ingredients

  • 750 ml of red wine
  • 500 g of fresh strawberries
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • Ice

Preparation

  1. Wash the strawberries in cold water, remove the crowns, dry with paper towels, and set aside.
  2. Chop the strawberries into small pieces, place them in a bowl, sprinkle sugar over them, cover with plastic wrap, and macerate in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  3. Add the macerated strawberries to a large jug and pour the wine over them, stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar is well dissolved. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking by adding more red wine or sugar.
  4. Let the strawberry borgoña rest for about 5 minutes and optionally add ice when serving.

Origin of Chilean Borgoña

Around the mid-19th century, European cultivators introduced the trend of overvaluing French grape varieties and imitation wines, adopting names like “type Bordeaux,” “type Burgundy,” or “Champagne,” seeking to emulate the characteristics of the original wines from those regions.

Did you know?

The use of strawberries to prepare fermented beverages has its origins in the Mapuche people, as documented by the chronicler Jerónimo de Vivar, who accompanied Pedro de Valdivia during his arrival in Chile.
