White Wine Peach Sangria

My high school friends, Jo and Cristina, visited me for the weekend again, and they brought a bottle of peach white wine from Fredericksburg, a cute little town in Texas Hill Country.
We were preparing this sangria recipe from Shop hemline for watching a movie when I discovered my roommate didn't have a wine bottle opener after all; she always opened her wines at a friend's house. She said try our friend and neighbor, Lisa, since she had just bought wine 2 days before.

Chef Uy: Lisa, do you have a wine bottle opener I could borrow?
Lisa: Oh dear. Do you need a wine bottle opener to open a wine bottle?
Chef Uy: Um yes, you do.

I called 4 other friends but no one had any wine bottle openers.

Jo: Don't you med school people drink??!

Anyways, we had to knock on six or seven neighbor's doors before finding one. Mission accomplished.
I'm not a huge alcohol drinker in general, but I really liked this sangria. A lot. For the next several days, I soaked my extra peaches and nectarines in it to absorb the flavor before eating it.

Hmm, this might be a game changer regarding my stance on alcohol's horrible taste.

Ingredients
1 bottle white wine
1 cup peach schnapps
1/2 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 nectarines, sliced thinly
1 cup green grapes

Directions
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or overnight. The longer it soaks, the more the wine absorbed the fruit flavors and vice versa!
