In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, simmer 1 ½ cups Sauvignon Blanc with ½ cup sugar’ cinnamon sticks, and orange zest, for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Place the peaches, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, and lime zest in a large glass bowl with the spiced wine and the remaining wine from the bottle.
