WOW! Definitely a major highlight of our trip! The only bad part was finding out that 345 does exist in the AM! Everything was done perfectly! We were picked up at the hotel right on time, then drive out to the winery was quite nice. Our van was about the last one to arrive. We were checked in quickly, then transported to the launch site. There were 3 balloons that day, each holding 16 passengers. Weather was PERFECT! Our pilot, was quite a master at entertaining us as well as handling the balloon. We’d envisioned some tumbling or dragging when we landed as our pilot had told us of the prior day’s flight. Conditions were perfect and he actually sat the basket down on the trailer! What a treat! Champagne was poured freely and breakfast was great and there was plenty of it! Kudos to everyone!
