Fly, Taste & Learn

Hot Air Balloon Morning + Day Tasting

This is a one-of-a-kind experience in the Willamette Valley, and a great way to see (and taste) what makes the Willamette Valley so unique. Your balloon adventure begins early in the morning at the Newberg Airpark as you help inflate the balloon, take a lovely flight over the vineyards and finish with a champagne brunch. Next, a Personal Sommelier will meet you at the Airpark and whisk you away to visit three to four wineries in the Willamette Valley (if you are a WineryHunt club member, you could be taken to your featured wineries!).

Your wine tour includes transportation to and from the Airpark, all tastings fees and a delicious lunch of locally sourced items overlooking the vines. Throughout the day, your Personal Sommelier will teach and educate you about your personal palate and how the wines in the Valley compare and contrast to wines around the world. This is more than just a wine tour…..it’s a wine country experience.
