Balloon Rides




Book Now
Sunrise over an enchanted European vineyard? Sure looks like it, as you ascend on a cushion of wind, breaking the bonds of gravity aboard a beautiful California Dreamin’ Hot Air Balloon in Temecula Valley Wine Country.

On your hot air balloon ride, you’ll leisurely float over rolling hills, impeccably planted rows of lush vineyards, and inspect the angular lines of red tile roofs of Country estates and Ranches in magnificent settings. You might even skim through the top branches of a citrus tree – and harvest a fruit in the process – all in the course of an hour – covering anywhere from three to seven miles.

We’ll fly high enough to afford a commanding view of the sprawling South Coast Winery and Resort, Ponte Estate Winery, Long Shadow Winery, and Mount Palomar Winery, to name a few!

Your hot air ballooning adventure will begin at Vindemia, a private vineyard in the middle of Temecula Wine Country – centrally located between San Diego and Los Angeles. A click on Directions will tell you how to get there.

Your Pilot, armed with years of safely maneuvering our balloon flights amid the winds and the wine world below you, will gauge the wind direction and speed and pick the perfect launch site. Spacious vans will take you there and the dream realization begins.

You can preview the beauty of our balloons in our Photo Gallery. You’ll be amazed as your aerostat (fancy name for a balloon) inflates from a canvas bag into a vibrantly colorful, teardrop-shaped life form - - with the help of cold air fans and millions of BTUs of heat. The inflation process is an excellent photo opportunity. Bring a camera or have your phone handy for your hot air balloon adventure! And be sure to snap a shot of the top of the balloon as it inflates. It will end up far above you. Speaking of photos, our expert crew are great photographers and will take your photo if needed.

At breakfast you'll receive a complimentary "2 for 1" Wine Tasting Ticket to Vindemia Winery.

You’ll fly high on your hot air balloon ride, and you’ll gently return, as we like to say, into the loving arms of Mother Earth, somewhere in scenic Temecula Valley. We then return to Vindemia where you will continue the celebration.

One of the many highlights of the Temecula Wine Country Balloon Ride is the delectable breakfast that we host at Vindemia. After your balloon flight, you’ll enjoy a light breakfast, featuring Cinnamon Burst bread, fresh fruits, cheeses and crackers, Champagne, Mimosas, hot cocoa, tea or coffee, in a private Rose Garden. Surrounded by beautiful flowers in a pristine setting with breathtaking views.

If you’re celebrating a special occasion like a Birthday or Anniversary,we will make it memorable! We’ll put a banner on the basket proclaiming the event, serve a birthday cake – and maybe even sing – or present a complimentary bottle of wine to toast an Anniversary or other special event. This treat doesn't cost anything extra.

Check out our terrific rates for this totally unique and unforgettable adventure. And we promise it will be just that! We have been flying Hot Air Balloons since 1977.

Have questions? We have lots of answers – like "Why so early?" or “What should I wear?” or “Can I steer the balloon?”

Within the Del Mar city limits, a quaint historical village dating back to the 1800s serves as a backdrop to a small seaside resort first made famous in the 1930s by racehorse aficionados form Hollywood. As an earlier example, Bing Crosby, who owned property in Rancho Santa Fe and had a stud barn for his thoroughbred horses, brought the Del Mar Turf Club into being. In 1937 the track opened, with many Hollywood stars among the 15,000 attendees. Thanks to the fair and the race meet, the hotel was heavily booked and the demand for beachfront property was high. Jimmy Durante and Desi Arnaz, soon to be followed by other celebrities, purchased beachfront property lots. Known nationally for its premier race track and thoroughbred horse meet, and throughout California for the “San Diego County Fair”, Del Mar is a place to relax, and enjoy life.

We offer daily balloon flights that gracefully drift and go soarin’ over California coastal valleys. Experience the sky in a whole new way – Rates.
