Soak up the charming Temecula Wine Country during sunrise from above on a hot air balloon ride!
Combine the excitement of flight with the magnificent beauty of a Southern California sunrise as enjoy this once in a lifetime experience in a hot air balloon!
Your hot air ballooning adventure begins at La Vindemia, a private vineyard in the middle of the Temecula Wine Country - centrally located between San Diego and Los Angeles, and just inland from Orange County.
Your pilot, armed with years of experience, will gauge the wind direction and speed and pick the perfect launch site.
You'll be amazed as your balloon transforms from a canvas bag into a vibrant, colorful, teardrop-shaped life form with the help of cold air fans and millions of BTU's of heat.
The inflation process is an excellent photo opportunity so do not forget your camera!
You will travel over the mountains and through the valleys while the earth quietly awakes from its slumber below.
Enjoy the splendor of a mountain sunrise as you leisurely float over rolling hills, impeccably planted rows of lush vineyards and the angular lines of red tile roofs of country estates and ranches.
You'll fly so high, and so well, on your hot air balloon ride that you will laugh along with mother nature, returning to Earth somewhere in the scenic Temecula Valley.
Once you have set down, you can reminisce during the traditional champagne celebration.
You will never forget this skyward adventure!
