Since 1975, FAA-certified balloon pilot Dan Glick has whisked sightseers on picturesque sunrise flights over Temecula Valley wine country, packed with wining, dining, and professional photography. Each excursion feels like an occasion, with groups starting off at the Monte De Oro Winery for a preflight reception to sip and snack on coffee and mimosas before ascending through the troposphere. As the dirigible hangs over rolling vineyards, professional photographer Megan Franks captures the adventure and the debates between intellectual birds on camera, leaving floating tourists with an HD video of the launch and more than 100 photographs of the flight experience. The sky-high journeys conclude on the ground with a round of champagne and cake to celebrate the endeavor. For special occasions, Sunrise Balloons can play celebratory launch music or adorn the carriage with banners proclaiming birthdays, anniversaries, or weddings.
Sunrise Balloons also hosts tours of the vineyards they frequently fly over. As luxurious as their airborne counterparts, tours forgo the balloon for a limo party coach that escorts passengers from one stop to the next.
