Liquid Altitude Freefall Sangria
I have to tell you that this is a fun review. Christine Kelley the owner of Liquid Altitude Freefall Sangria asked if I could give her sangria a try. As a lover of good sangria, how could I say no? My FedEx man dropped this off last week and I gave it a good chill and tried it this weekend. As a matter of fact, I’m sipping some now!
Christine Kelley and Tom Falzone owners of Liquid Altitude are both avid skydivers. Christine has accumulated over 2800 skydives since she began jumping in 2001. The sport of skydiving changed the course of her life completely, giving her the courage to take risks and try new things, expanding the production of Freefall being her biggest endeavor to date. CK finds deep satisfaction in infusing her fun-loving spirit into every batch of Freefall. Tom is the co-founder of Liquid Altitude. He is a professional skydiver and is the Head Coach of the West Point Parachute Team, the Black Knights. Besides that though, Tomcat is the mastermind of product development behind Freefall Sangria. He also holds the supremely important titles of Absolute Sangria Taster, Case Carrier, and Mover of All Things Big. He is also CK’s biggest cheerleader, motivator, and all around Bringer of Laughter.
Tom began skydiving in 1986. Today, with several world records and over 15,000 jumps under his belt, what is his favorite part of his skydiving day? Sitting out at sunset, watching jumpers land from the last planeload the day. He relishes kicking back on the deck that has been warmed by the summer sun, an icy glass of sangria in his hand.
The wine is 100% NY State Grapes made up of a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Baco Noir. She started serving it when she began running the cafe at Skydive the Ranch in Gardiner, NY. After a hard day of skydiving, the fellow jumper fell in love with it. They shared their concoction with their friends far and wide. It was such a hit they decided to market it.
What I found
This wine is the perfect picnic/ Barbeque/ Party or anytime wine. It is 30 proof hold on to your socks fruit infused fun without having to take the time to make your own. It’s not sweet – sweet and the fruit is just right. I can’t go into tannins or acidity but it has a great mouthfeel and finish. You really have to give this one a try!

Until next week and another adventure in wine, Cheers! Lew P.S. I promise to improve my video skills 🙂
