Start your sunrise hot-air-balloon experience with a pre-flight snack of coffee, tea, orange juice, and pastries. Then, head out to the launch field with your group to watch your brightly colored balloon inflate. Listen to a comprehensive safety briefing, and then step inside your balloon’s basket with your expert pilot. Each basket holds a maximum of 16 people, and there’s plenty of room for you to sightsee comfortably as you soar up and away.
Have your camera ready to capture bird’s-eye views of Napa Valley’s rolling hills as you softly glide through the early morning skies. As you pass over pristine vineyards, your pilot talks to you about Napa’s captivating landscape. Hear how the vines change from emerald green to a rusty gold according to season, and learn about the different wineries in the area below you.
After approximately an hour in the air, your pilot gives you instructions for a smooth landing. Once back on the ground, make your way back to Domaine Chandon Winery, and sit down inside its prestigious restaurant for your lavish breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, and cottage potatoes. Fruit salad and muffins, as well as coffee, tea, and orange juice are also included.
Relax while enjoying this classic American buffet breakfast and, after receiving your souvenir photo, toast your group with a glass of sparkling Domain Chandon wine — it’s the perfect way to celebrate your Napa Valley balloon flight.

Smooth takeoff, beautiful views, experienced pilot, fun and exciting experience. Moreover, the brunch was also pretty good: mimosas, coffee, scrambled eggs, english muffins and jam and fruit.
This was one of the coolest things I have ever done! Strongly recommend for couples or families. Small children may have hard time seeing over basket if too young. It was not scary at all! I hope to do it again sometime. Staff were wonderful!
What a great experience. Our Pilot and all the crew were superb. Even though the weather did not cooperate for a Napa Valley flight, our driver Jaylen was informative and made our trip enjoyable on the way to the Central Valley for our flight. Since, this was our first flight in a balloon, our expectations were high and we feel they were met, even on the bump and tip landing. My wife really liked the flight and wants to do more back in the Carolina's. Domaine Chandon brunch was icing on the cake....
I have always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon...this experience exceeded my expectations! Our pilot and guide, Bob was not only very knowledgeable, but has a great sense of humor and great personality. From the start at the Winery with pastries to the end with breakfast and mimosas! Worth every penny! Fabulous!
It was a great experience except we flew over Farmland which reminded me of Nebraska Farms We went to see the Napa Valley Wine Country which was rather disappointing. I can see farmland at home anytime! Also they had five people in our Basket on our side and that was too many, my husband couldn't see anything and the driver never turned the balloon around so we were faced backwards the whole entire time. And pictures were impossible because I like to get where people's heads because there were like I said five people in our little section of the basket which they should only been 4 at the max it was rather unfortunate and disappointing . So I think it would have been a much different trip if there would have been only for in our side of the basket so 16 total in the in the balloon where everybody could see good and then also if we would have went over the Napa Valley Wine Country was which what what we were intrigued by . The day before we went zip-lining over the Redwood Forest I would highly recommend that over the balloon ride. For the money we spent, I would say don't do it unless there is ONLY 16 PEOPLE in your balloon and you were. Flying over the vineyards, then it would have been worth it I think it was poor planning on their part, my husband's a big guy I'm 5 foot 10 and it just made it really squishy and you're not able to see anything so it was really disappointing but you know overall I guess I can say that I went in a hot air balloon, that's about it , over Farm Fields, not very exciting for over four hundred bucks !
