Viator Vip: Napa By Helicopter With Wine Tasting And Lunch
Gaze out the window of your state-of-the-art helicopter for spectacular aerial views of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Napa Valley’s vineyards on an unparalleled VIP wine country trip. Land near one of the region's best wineries, situated along the Silverado Trail, for a guided tour, tastings, and tapas. As you roam past gnarled vines, learn about the grapes that make a world-class cabernet sauvignon, among other varietals. When it's time to go, just hop back in your helicopter to enjoy a flight back to San Francisco. Limited to six people, this Viator VIP experience makes for the perfect special occasion in Napa Valley. You can’t book it anywhere else!
In Northern California, few experiences are more luxurious than a wine-tasting trip to the Napa Valley. The world-class destination boasts sprawling vineyards, boutiques, Michelin-star restaurants, and scenic landscapes. For an unforgettable taste of wine country, take this round-trip narrated helicopter flight to visit to one of region's finest vineyards, located on the Silverado Trail.
Start this VIP tour with morning pickup from your selected San Francisco location for a short ride over the Golden Gate Bridge to the charming town of
Sausalito. Board your helicopter, limited to six passengers, to fly north over the San Francisco Bay toward wine country.
Touch down near the Rutherford Ranch Winery, a family-owned estate. It is among the some 40 wineries that stud the Silverado Trail, a 29-mile (47-km) route that became Napa Valley's first permanent road in 1852.
Take a short drive along the scenic road to arrive for a guided tour of the winery. The town of Rutherford is a renowned cabernet belt, and your guide, an employee at the estate, points out some of the characteristics of the grape as you amble along groomed paths. Feel free to ask questions about winemaking as you approach a secluded spot in the heart of the vineyards.
Move past a clearing of twisted vines to find a private 6-person table. Soak up the late-summer sun and the earthy aromas as you enjoy wine tastings and tapas-style bites that might even include olives from the estate's 100-year-old grove. It's truly a farm-to-table experience.
After your hosted visit, you don't have to worry about traveling far. Take a 5-minute drive to the airport for your helicopter flight back to San Francisco! Whirr heavenward, admiring Napa's zigzagging vineyards below. Continue over more pastoral landscapes before you get more aerial views of iconic San Francisco sights such as the Golden Gate
Bridge and Alcatraz. Land at the Nob Hill, Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf
locations, where your Viator VIP experience concludes.
