What You Can Expect

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 in the southernmost part of Napa Valley.

Start this Viator 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.

Take a short drive on a scenic road to arrive for a guided tour and paring at the Jamieson Ranch Vineyards. Jamieson is the southernmost winery in the Napa Valley, one of the world’s most famous winemaking regions. The estate is more than 300 acres of gently rolling hills and terraced vineyards benefit from the cooling fog and breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay, climatic conditions that favor the production of exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Indulge yourself with a guided wine tasting and food pairing. Our wine educators will lead you in the essentials of creating as well as enjoying pairings. Enjoy this culinary delight on a veranda with sweeping views of the property.

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.

Please note: This tour is seasonal and only operates from April to October.
