Sonoma in High-Flying Style

Imagine flying over scenic San Francisco with its colorful houses and ocean views towards the beautiful vineyards of wine country. Then, taking a tour of a prestigious winery and pairing different wines with delicious food. Two Northern California gems in one day – what more could you ask for? Helicopters aren’t just for hedge-fund managers anymore.

The Trip

You’ll be picked up by a shuttle from select locations in San Francisco, board your chopper, and embark on your 30-minute journey to wine country. On the way you will see some of the city’s most famous sights like the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Then, you’ll tour a renowned winery in Sonoma or Napa. Enjoy learning about wine production from a knowledgeable guide and sample wine and food pairings. After touring and tasting, enjoy the scenic return flight to San Francisco.


The tours operate from April to October and each tour lasts approximately three hours. These are small group excursions and require four to six guests. You must be at least 21 years old to participate.

Prices may vary. You can read more about the trip and admission prices here.
