Escape.... your daily routine in a hot air balloon! 

Your shared hot air balloon adventure awaits you over the beautiful Temecula Valley wine country in Southern California.  Experience peace and serenity while you drift above vineyards as the sun rises over the San Jacinto mountains. Take flight with the birds and observe wildlife marveling at the sight of a beautiful hot air balloon floating overhead.  Every day's flight is unique, a hot air balloon's path is set by the prevailing wind speed and direction. No two flights are ever the same! Views include local lakes, citrus groves, wineries and estate homes from your unparalleled view in the air. Sunrise hot air balloon rides are offered daily, weather permitting, all year long.   

Before Your Hot Air Balloon Flight

We will meet your party at Bolero Winery conveniently located off Rancho California Road in Temecula, California in the heart of the Southern California wine country.  Meeting times vary with the season from 5:30 am in the summer months to 6:30 am during the winter months. Your exact check in time will be given to you when your reservation is confirmed. When you arrive, your balloon pilot will check your group in and collect your payment.  You will be introduced to your pilot and will transported to the launch site in one of our chase vehicles.  Restrooms and ample parking are available for your convenience.


Your Hot Air Balloon Flight

Your shared hot air balloon adventure begins at sunrise as cold air inflates your majestic seven-story hot air balloon.  We invite you to participate or sit back and observe the process. Our certified commercial balloon pilot will navigate the hot air balloon flight with your safety and enjoyment in mind.  During your Temecula hot air balloon ride the pilot will also act as your “tour guide” identifying local points of interest such as Pechanga Resort & Casino, Lake Skinner, Old Town Temecula and the numerous Temecula Valley wineries that dot the wine country landscape. The pilot communicates throughout the entire hot air balloon excursion with trained ground personnel.  The crew will follow the hot air balloon and will assist with your landing.  Once back on the ground, the chase crew will pack up the balloon.

After Your Hot Air Balloon Flight

We will transport you back to Bolero Winery in our comfortable PUC certified vehicles. We will then toast your successful hot air balloon flight and new status as “Aeronaut” with our private label “La Scappatella” champagne, orange juice and mimosas in the VIP area of the winery.  If you are celebrating a special occasion, be sure to notify us so that we can help you celebrate!  We can even add on individually packaged bundtlets from Nothing Bundt Cakes for a small additional fee.  Prior to leaving each guest will receive a souvenir certificate of flight and 20% off the purchase of our private label "La Scappatella" champagne.
