Where We’re Going, We Don’t Need Roads

There’s so much to see and do in California wine country.

But why not make the experience more memorable by traveling the countryside a little differently.

Discover what form of transportation fits your fancy for your next wine vacation.

1.    By Balloon

Napa Valley Balloons allows you to take a romantic sunrise balloon ride for two over sprawling hills and vast vineyards.  Start off with a pre-flight continental breakfast, then spend an hour 2,000 feet in the air with your own personal tour guide and finish with a Champagne toast and hearty American breakfast to kick off your day of wine tastings.

2.    By Horse & Carriage

The Wine Carriage offers Sonoma’s most unique wine tasting adventure.  Travel to three award-winning wineries by elegant horse-drawn carriage.  This 4½ hour romantic adventure includes premium wine tastings, gourmet lunch, a wine cave tour and a personal coachman/guide.

3.    By Jeep

Limo tours are romantic, but you’re closed-in and unable to really enjoy the sights and smells of the beautiful countryside.  OpenAir Jeep Tours allows you to take in the fresh air and aromatic vineyards while cruising through the bumpy back roads to smaller boutique wineries.  A fun and fast-paced adventure through wine country; just be sure to bring a hair brush!

4.    By Private Jet

Make this romantic getaway one that your significant other will remember for a lifetime, fly them to the wine country on a private jet!  Avantair lets you experience the safety, security and convenience of private aviation without the expense of whole aircraft ownership.  Offering your choice of Fractional Jet Ownership, Jet Leasing or Jet Card programs, it’s easy to find a convenient way to travel via private jet that can fit into your busy lifestyle and budget.

5.    By Train

The Napa Valley Wine Train provides a relaxing three-hour, thirty-six mile round-trip journey from the historic town of Napa, through one of the world’s most well known wine valleys to the quaint village of St. Helena, and back. Guests aboard the Wine Train enjoy a freshly prepared lunch or dinner inside a fully restored 1915-1917 Pullman Dining Car or 1952 Vista Dome car as they pass the vineyards and wineries of Napa Valley. They also have the option of pre-purchasing a winery tour.

6.    By Bike

One of the most unique things to do in Napa Valley is take a bike tour that allows you to go off-road and literally through the vineyards! Napa Valley Bike Tours offers a cycling IN the Vineyards tour. On this bike tour, you’ll venture to the Carneros District, a region that’s as a famous for its postcard-ready views as it is for milder-climate varietals such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Just a small handful of wineries allow biking through their vineyards – making this truly special adventure that is not to be missed!
