Temecula, heart of the Southern California wine country offers 2,500 acres of vineyards scattered throughout rolling hills, breath taking views of 11,000 foot high mountains, and the best way to view it all….from the Robert Renzoni hot air balloon. Experience peace and serenity while drifting over vineyards as the sun rises over the mountains. Take flight with the birds and observe lakes, citrus groves, vineyards, wineries and estate homes from your unparalleled view in the air.

Your adventure begins at sunrise as cold air inflates your beautiful seven story hot air balloon. You are invited to participate or sit back and observe the process. During the one hour ride, local points of interest are identified and questions are encouraged. While riding the currents, it is not uncommon to spot rabbits running through the vineyards and even an occasional coyote. Flying above this spectacular landscape affords a once in a lifetime experience. Once back on the ground, you will toast your successful flight and new status as “aeronaut” with champagne, orange juice, and a continental breakfast served picnic style. As a memento of your adventure, you will be presented with a souvenir certificate of flight.

Tours are offered seven days a week, weather permitting, year round. Scenic flights are 60-75 minutes in length, however plan to spend up to three hours for your entire ballooning excursion. All rides take place at sunrise when winds are calm, the air is stable and the temperatures are cool. Meeting times vary from 5:30 AM to 6:30 AM depending on the season.

If you are celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary make sure to mention it when making your reservation. A banner and complimentary cake will help make the day even more memorable. Reservations are required, and are available for any number of passengers from a single guest to groups of any size.
