What You Can Expect

Napa Valley Hot-Air Balloon Ride with Sparkling Wine Brunch

Fly over Napa Valley vineyards!

Meet your host inside Domaine Chandon Winery in the heart of Napa Valley, and start your sunrise hot-air balloon experience with a pre-flight snack: coffee, tea, orange juice and pastries. Then, head out to the launch field with your group to watch your brightly colored balloon inflate. Listen to a comprehensive safety briefing and then step inside your balloon’s basket with your expert pilot. Each basket holds a maximum of 16 people and there’s plenty of room for you to sightsee comfortably as you soar gently up and away.

Have your camera ready to capture bird’s-eye views of Napa Valley’s rolling hills as you softly glide through the early morning skies. As you pass over pristine vineyards, your pilot will talk to you about Napa’s captivating landscape; hear how the vines change from emerald green to a rusty gold according to season and learn about the different wineries in the area below you.

After approximately an hour in the air, your pilot will give you instructions for your smooth landing. Once back on the ground, make your way back inside Domaine Chandon Winery and sit down inside its prestigious restaurant for your lavish breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausages and cottage potatoes. Fruit salad and muffins, as well as coffee, tea and orange juice are also included.

Relax while enjoying this classic American buffet breakfast and, after receiving your souvenir photo, toast your group with a glass of sparkling Domain Chandon wine; it’s the perfect way to celebrate your Napa Valley balloon flight!

Please note: hotel pickup and drop-off is not included with this tour

It was a lot of fun for my daughter. It was her bucket list and I went along. I am very scared of heights but Mike did a great job of trying to relax me. I finally let go and enjoyed it at the end. We dipped the basket in water and had a really smooth landing. Worth the money!

The pilot was very knowledgeable and helpful. Was a great experience. Would do it again. The pilot made sure everyone was comfortable and in a great place for viewing. The grounds people and our bus driver was great. A very rewarding trip. Our first balloon ride and it was fabulous.

This was my first Balloon ride but not my last. I can truly sat the Pictures do not do the view any justice. Napa Valley is such a beautiful place and we had the best view. Thank you for your hospitality and such a great staff. I will be returning .

Every thing as advertised ...Only better...From office staff to operations personnel.. mimosa's aplenty an food was good both before and after flight. Capt. John and his ground crew were top notch providing help, assistance and care for 5 very senior senior citizens ages 79 to 90 years in age .This was my second trip with Napa Hot-air Balloons.. But this trip had it all : 1 hr, 44 minutes in the air . 2006 ft max. altitude and an 11.9 mile flight distance to south of Napa. Grand kids are next..
See ya soon...
