Scott, the grand master of ballooning in Sonoma County, CA was/is fantastic. He's done this for 40+ years! He knows what he's talking about and he knows what he's doing. He made the trip a once in a lifetime experience for my sweetheart and me. We're not as spry as we used to be at 68 and 66. The beginning... More

What a great birthday present on President's Day 2.17.14 to take a hot air balloon ride! This was one experience I've waited to do my entire life, "riding the air waves" so worth it. The balloon crew was knowledgeable, experienced, and professionally fun!!! These people even hang out with "the Dave Matthews Band" on balloon rides, and we all felt... More

This was an amazing part of my birthday trip to Napa and Sonoma California. My husband planned for us to go up in a hot air balloon. I have always wanted to experience this at least once in my life. All the guys were wonderful taking us up in the balloon. The visibility was not good because of fog, so... More

What a great way to see the Fall colors of Sonoma County vineyards! A peaceful morning aloft, watching the dogs and livestock wake up below. I asked Scott how long he had been doing this; he said he started with his father, at age 12. He certainly seemed to know what he was doing. I forget how many hours he... More

I grew up in the town of Sonoma, and was back for my 30th year high school reunion. I had never taken a hot-air balloon ride, but had ridden in a chaser truck a few times as a kid, so this felt really special, that it was finally ME in the basket. Our family, my husband and I, and our... More

First off my Husband and I would like to thank Scott and crew for a great experience and flight. Scott has a great and fun commentary. He puts everyone at ease. The basket was beautiful and in excellent condition, the balloon was large. Our flight started out early 6:30 so if you can try to stay at a close by... More

This was a belated birthday gift from my boyfriend and I couldn't have asked for more! Scott was so wonderful, informative and funny. Do this! Take a flight! Tell your friends! It's a great experience and I can't wait to do it again! Thank you!

I have nothing but accolades for Scott and his company, Wine Country Balloons. I invited my wife for a balloon ride for a “big” birthday in August, 2013, and Scott and team were great to work with to plan this surprise for her. His support staff back at the office was professional and handled the paper work expeditiously and without... More

For young & old alike; Great Father/Son or Mother/Daughter event, Bday, anniversary, honeymoon, etc. Today my 82 year-old mother enjoyed a hot air balloon flight that she would have never taken had it not been for the assurance of a quick-thinking pilot, Scott. She is deathly afraid of heights, snakes, skiing, ... simply put, very conservative. When contacting Wine Country... More

Very nice and informative company. Crew very nice and helpful with taking photos. Event lasted well over an hour and ascended to over 4,800 ft with spectacular views. Breakfast and champagne was a nice addition.
