The most personalized, professional ballooning experience in the Sonoma County Wine Country. Gourmet brunch served in the gardens of Kendall-Jackson Winery after the flight. Best safety record.***Now wheelchair accessible***

Beautiful way to start a morning. Magical feeling floating above the vineyards. Bring a jacket as it is always cool in the morning. And don't forget to bring a camera!

Not cheap, but this is a "once in a lifetime" experience! Best time to do this is the fall, when the chances of fog are minimal and the scenery - turning leaves and vineyards- is spectacular.(I love in the neighborhood, and get to see them...More

We were finished by 9:30am. We also had to travel a little farther that day due to fog in the original location selected. This is a great start to the day and it ends early enough to still do other activities.
