Wine Tours from San Francisco | Balloons Above the Valley

San Francisco in California is no doubt a famous tourist destination. The good thing about it is that the other neighboring towns and cities also benefit greatly from the city’s legendary tourism industry. One of these cities is in the neighboring wine country called Napa Valley, which is itself a popular tourist spot in its own right. Wine tours from San Francisco to Napa Valley are popular, needless to say. Most tourists in San Francisco couldn’t afford to miss the “taste” of Napa, and well, there’s no reason not to go there! It is only about a 90-minute drive away from the Bay City.

For those who are staying in San Francisco (or are planning to) but want to get away from the urban jungle to the lush, scenic paradise of the California wine country, they can also take advantage of the San Francisco-to-Napa transportation services, many of which can be found as part of several Napa wine tours packages.

Balloons Above the Valley (BATV) also offers a package which specifically caters to those who are visiting San Francisco but also want to experience Napa. The “San Francisco Balloon & Wine Tour” allows guests to explore Napa on or even off the ground! For two days, guests tour the wineries and enjoy a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the gorgeous Napa scenery.

Convenience is also provided to the guests by chauffeured tours from San Francisco to Napa Valley. As they depart San Francisco, they enjoy an onboard breakfast with mimosa, and a stopover to enjoy spectacular vistas of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Coasting along, guests get to visit wineries in Napa and Sonoma and tour around vineyards and a production area at one winery. The guests’ tummies will be satisfied by a sumptuous buffet-style picnic lunch at one of the wineries.

The sunrise hot air balloon ride is sure to astound and amaze anyone! Guests enjoy open, uninterrupted views of the Napa Valley, with fields dominated by vineyards that appear well-manicured from a bird’s eye view. The experience of flying alone is already exhilarating! Take pictures and videos of the gorgeous and picturesque scenery to keep as a lasting souvenir.

The approximately one-hour flight is followed by a champagne brunch at the Michelin-awarded C Casa at the Oxbow Public Market. Guests get to savor the innovative Mexican and Southwestern fusion gourmet cuisine — their unique tacos are surely not to be missed! The brunch is also a great time for convivial chats and recollections about how wonderful the flight has been.

BATV’s “San Francisco Balloon & Wine” package does not only offer exciting sights and delectable flavors of Napa. It also offers comfort and convenience to the guests. You don’t have to bother driving your own car or commute all the way from the city to the Wine Country. It’s because our partner Napa Wine Country Tours will go out of its way — with its fleet of chauffeured limousine buses — to pick you up at specific meeting places in San Francisco and drive you and the other guests to the Wine Country.
