What You Can Expect

Following pickup at select San Francisco locations, board your vehicle for the short trip over the Golden Gate Bridge to the charming town of Sausalito. With your small group of 6 people, climb into your helicopter for a scenic flight over the San Francisco Bay up to Napa Valley. 

After landing in Napa, take a short drive to Jamieson Ranch Vineyards. This estate boasts more than 300 acres of terraced vineyards and rolling hills, and produces exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Meet your onsite guide for a wine and food pairing, sampling some of the best varietals that Jamieson Ranch has to offer along with Spanish-style tapas. As you relax on the veranda, enjoy sweeping views of the property and learn about the winemaking process. 

After your time at the winery has finished, take the short drive back to your helicopter. Take flight and enjoy views of Marin, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge before landing back in Nob Hill, Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf. 

Please note: This tour is seasonal, and operates only from April to October.

Fantastic experience, just as advertised, would highly recommend it. Short flight to/from Napa and a relaxed yummy lunch with complimenting wine samples. Pilot was very friendly and informative as were the staff at Jamieson Ranch.

My Partner and I had a great time on the trip through to Napa and time at the winery. It would have been great to have a little more time at the winery as it felt a little rushed but the wine and food pairings were excellent. The trip back and tour of the city via helicopter was fantastic as the fog had lifted a bit - so the golden gate bridge was 'up close and personal' as we went under and over it. Expert piloting and local knowledge from our pilot and bus driver as well.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

This tour was amazing! The only thing I would change, is to have more time at the winery. The heli ride was so exciting and fun, the winery was beautiful and the lunch was delish!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

The wine and lunch were both delicious and Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is the quintessential Napa winery, but it was the helicopter to and from that made this tour unforgettable. A perfect way to spend an afternoon in the Bay, if you ask me.
