Combine the excitement of flight with the magnificent beauty of a Southern California sunrise as you enjoy this once in a lifetime experience.

Your hot air ballooning adventure begins at La Vindemia, a private vineyard in the middle of the Temecula Wine Country - centrally located between San Diego and Los Angeles, and just inland from Orange County. You will arrive shortly before sunrise to a cup of piping hot coffee, cocoa or hot tea.

Your pilot, armed with years of experience, will gauge the wind direction and speed and pick the perfect launch site.

You'll be amazed as your balloon transforms from a canvas bag into a vibrant, colorful, teardrop-shaped life form with the help of cold air fans and millions of BTUs of heat. The inflation process is an excellent photo opportunity so don't forget your camera!

Enjoy the splendor of a mountain sunrise as you leisurely float over rolling hills, impeccably planted rows of lush vineyards and the angular lines of red tile roofs of country estates and ranches.

Once you have set down, you can reminisce during the traditional champagne celebration and gourmet continental breakfast.

You will never forget this skyward adventure!

Is it a safe experience?
This balloon company has built their entire reputation on providing you with the adventure of your life. Since 1977 their pilots, staff, and crew have been extensively trained by employing rigid company practices that go beyond those required by law. Safety is the top priority.
What should I wear?
Casual outdoor active wear is recommended, along with a jacket, sweatshirt or fleece pullover. Comfortable shoes are suggested, high heels are not allowed. The balloon burners radiate heat, therefore, it is recommend that if you are over 6 feet tall that you wear a hat or a cap. In the cooler months you can bring some gloves to wear.
What do I need to bring?
A camera! A video camera! It is recommended you leave all other personal possessions safely locked in your car.
What about bad weather?
Weather is obviously an important factor in ballooning. That is why there is a "mandatory" phone call prior to each flight, for that final "weather confirmation". If the flight is canceled because of weather conditions, you will be able to reschedule your flight for another date.
How many passengers will be in the balloon?
The number of passengers depends on the balloon. The smallest balloon can accommodate 6 passengers and the largest can accommodate up to 14 passengers! All of the baskets are large, European design, and partitioned to give each passenger maximum comfort and visibility.
How high does the balloon fly?
When you are aloft in the balloon you may travel up to 1,500 feet above the earth, which is what makes those views so fantastic!
How far will the balloon travel?
The average distance that you will travel in the balloon is 3-7 miles, depending on winds.
What if I have motion sickness?
There is no turbulence sway or keel in a hot air balloon. However, if you are especially sensitive to motion, medication should be effective.

My wife and I went on the sunrise hot air ballon ride for our anniversary and we could have been happier with the experience. The vineyard was lovely, staff friendly and the pilot Matt was great and very knowledgeable.
We had so much fun. The staff were so friendly and informative. I would definitely recommend everyone to experience this!!
Truly amazing

Hi Valentin! Thank you for the excellent review. We are so thrilled that the staff was able to provide a fun and safe experience for you and your girlfriend and we hope we will see you again soon for another great experience! Best, Kelsey
Had a great flight and mice breakfast afterward. Didn’t expect breakfast, but it was a nice ending to the balloon ride. Very friendly staff and very caring.
I had one of my best experiences with the Cloud 9 Living sunrise hot air balloon ride. It was a relaxing, wonderful adventure experience and everything was perfect. I enjoyed it very much.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. The weather was incredible, we had a fun group with us, and the guide was fun and informative. We would definitely like to come back for the sunset ride!
I had a wonderful time and the drivers did a great job --- so careful, checking winds, etc. all the time. They were super friendly, answered questions, and explained things. All the staff was great, including the breakfast folks too. Thanks again, and I will for sure recommend you to friends.
I took my boyfriend up for the hot air balloon trip at dawn, and it was worth every penny and so much more. The team absolutely went above and beyond to make this experience one of the most memorable Saturday mornings we will ever have. They were professional, friendly, and so hard-working. The trip itself was amazing --- breathtaking and definitely a once in a lifetime experience. I would most definitely recommend this to everyone!
The hot air balloon flight was fabulous. We also stayed at the B&B at La Vindemia, run by the same lovely couple.
The balloon ride over Temecula was a blast. My wife and I had never been ballooning before, and she is a bit wary of heights, but the ride was so pleasant, so smooth, so invigorating and fun that we simply had a blast. The pilot and the entire experience was great, including complementary breakfast and mimosas at the winery after our balloon ride.
Great experience...the only weird part was having only a one hour window to confirm the day before...the location of taking off was changed and I was elated, as pickup was at our hotel...the person confirming us was a bit brusque and stated that "well, I didn't know that you were staying there" in an annoyed way...in no part of the booking process was there even a question of where we were staying the first place. However, the owners were sweet, our pilot so in command, and reassuring to those of us who were a little scared. Ground crew hard working and kept us informed.... all in all an "E" Ticket experience!
Great time in Temecula.
David who owns the balloon and pilots it was fabulous - great experience! He also owns a small winery. We joined his wine club. Great friendly staff with both the balloon ride and the winery.
I transferred my experience to my son and his family and they reported they had a wonderful time on the Newport brunch cruise. However, my experience with your staff was perfect during the arrangements.
Perfect gift for anyone. Had a wonderful time.
Our crew was very safety conscience, too windy on Wed. but had a great flight on Friday. Mat (the teacher) was a great pilot and guide. Kevin was our pilot on Wed. and made the call not to fly, which we really appreciate.
My first balloon flight was fantastic!
Our hot air balloon ride was amazingly romantic and beautiful. Thank you!
What an incredible birthday gift! My daughter, Heidi treated me to a hot air balloon ride. The view was breath taking, the ride gentle, the pilot skilled and well versed. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Just wanted to sincerely thank you for a very special memorable evening!! The experience was unbelievable and the pilot was absolutely the best!! Thank you for waiting for us since we ended up being 15 minutes late (we're so sorry!!) I have already recommended this company to several of my friends and family members. I'm sure we will be back for another ride very soon! Thanks again!
It was an awesome experience and one thing checked off my bucket list. Wonderful staff
We have already recommended to many friends! This was an amazing experience!
