In a small saucepan add the sugar and water. Turn heat to high, bring to a boil, and cook for about 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves completely. Place syrup in a container and add cinnamon sticks and cover tightly. Chill syrup in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours up to 48 hours. The cinnamon flavor will get stronger the longer it sits. Remove the cinnamon sticks and set aside to use in the sangria.
In a pitcher, add wine, spiced apple cider, both brandys, 1/4 cup cinnamon simple syrup, reserved cinnamon sticks from syrup, and all the fruit. Cover top of pitcher tightly with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 4 to 72 hours. Serve in individual glasses over ice.
