What is Cabernet Season?

Cabernet Season refers to Napa Valley's less-hurried months from November through February. Expect fewer crowds and more intimate hospitality at local wineries.

With average temperatures in the upper-50s to mid-60s, it's still a great time to get outdoors and explore the valley on two wheels!

Even though it’s called Cabernet Season, you’ll still get to taste the full spectrum of wine varietals produced in Napa Valley (yes, white wines, too!).

Our Cabernet Season Balloon & E-Bike Tour has been thoughtfully curated to harmonize with this time of year.

Cabernet Season Balloon + E-Bike Tour

Combine two of Napa Valley’s most thrilling adventures for an experience that’s destined to be the most unforgettable day of your wine country trip!

Hot-Air Balloon Flight

Enjoy pre-flight coffee, tea and pastries by Bouchon Bakery followed by a shuttle to the launch site. The excitement begins as you watch your flight crew preparing and inflating your balloon. Then it’s up, up and away as you soar over the vineyards for a flight lasting approximately one hour, depending on weather and landing opportunities.
