One should spend the money and take this balloon ride. I was scared to do the hot air balloon ride, but am so happy I did. The owner/pilot/vineyard was fantastic as was his crew and his wife. The breakfast was wonderful and we got to taste one of their wines. Can recommend this and give it 5 stars.

It was our first time in a hot air balloon. We had a great time. Dave did a wonderful job. Due to the winds, our flight lasted a little less than an hour. There were times that we would go low enough that we felt we could almost pick the grapes

Despite the early start to the day, we had a wonderful adventure. The weather was clear (mandatory check in the day before confirms whether the balloons will fly). We were joined by others with a total of 12 in our group. After trying two potential launch spots (rejected because of the winds aloft) we headed for Winchester. Three other balloons... More
