Sonoma Valley Hot Air Ballooning For Two
Drift Peacefully Over the Northern California Wine lands
Price for 2 participants
Two of you will enjoy a wonderfully relaxing and tranquil ride over the hills and wine valleys of stunning Sonoma. An early start is required, so you will receive a personal wake up call from your pilot. On arrival at the launch site you will watch and help with inflating the balloon and be briefed about the wonders of hot air ballooning.
Once in the air you and your partner will drift over the beautiful northern California landscape and possibly even get views of the Pacific Ocean or the buildings of San Francisco. The pilot may take you low enough to see the rabbits and deer, drifting just above the grapevines of Sonoma, and if conditions are right you may even be taken into a lake or pond for a quick “Splash and Dash”.
Your day of course would not be complete without a champagne brunch for the two of you in a beautiful winelands setting.

Mike and his team were excellent! Unfortunately the wind was not cooperating and we ended up ballooning over a town and the airport and not over rolling hills or vineyards. Know they have no control over that though! Ended at Kendall Jackson for a nice breakfast! Overall an excellent experience!

From start to finish, it was a great experience. Having four colorful balloons in the air made it so much more picturesque.

Question: Where the exact take off and landing place?
Can we swap out the champagne for something else?
How is the weather when hot air ballooning in October? Can you still see clearly when up in the air?
How far up do you go?
Answer: You will meet at the Sonoma County Airport just outside of Santa Rosa. From there your pilot will travel to the best launch site available to ensure a scenic and safe flight. The flight will last approximately one hour and can range from 3 to 10 miles depending on the wind currents.
After landing, you will come back to the airport, get your vehicle and head over to Kendall-Jackson Winery for a one of a kind gourmet brunch. The brunch is served on beautiful hand-painted plates with pictures of our balloons on them. Champagne and juice are poured in our logo stemware and a toast is made.
FAA regulations restrict pilots from flying if there isn't atleast a 5 mile visibility in front of them or if winds reach over 10miles per hour.
October and the fall months are Hot Air Balloonings most popular season.
Most balloon flights soar from just above the tree tops to about 4,000 feet.
