White wine sangria needs to be kept chilled at all times. Letting it sit out for a prolonged period of time at temperatures room temperature or warmer can speed up the decay of the fruit and turn the wine into vinegar.
Sangria is best when consumed within 24 hours. It will last up to three or four days in the fridge. After four days, you run the risk of the citrus fruit turning the sangria bitter.
