Held at Grapetown Vineyard and the Fredericksburg Polo Club (on same property) VIP’s will enjoy a Polo Match capped with a VIP Farm to Table Dinner, Live Music and Wine Tasting. Polo Matches, Grape Stomps and Live Music. The VIP Farm to Dinner is followed by a Hot Air Balloon Glow at Dusk, then tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides (when and if, winds allow). The VIP Passes are All Inclusive (including the Hot Air Balloon Ride) and geared towards a more refined higher end experience. GA Passes are also available.
SPECIAL NOTE: Grapetown Vineyard and Farm is also home to many exotic animals. There are Safari Wine Tours available for purchase that will give you the opportunity for a behind the scenes tour to meet Camels, Alpacas, Goats, Rheas, Blackbuck, Reindeer, Zebras and more! Tours are available all day. Those who choose the 2 PM tour will miss most of the polo match. These Safari Wine Tours are NOT included in the GA pass, and must therefore be booked and purchased separately and in addition to any other passes.
DISCLAIMER: This is not the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Festival. Do not come here expecting hundreds of balloons. You will be disappointed. This is a day of unique experiences and we will typically have 1-4 Hot Air Balloons on site. It is extremely important to understand, Hot Air Balloons are extremely weather contingent. We cannot guarantee that the weather will cooperate. We will guarantee you that we always do our best to inflate and activate balloons (we will have anywhere from 1-4 Balloons on site for the tethered rides and Hot Air Balloon Activation). We also guarantee you that we will always put safety first. When the weather does not cooperate, and if balloon rides are not completed we will refund any guest a complimentary Hot Air Balloon ride at a future event (for up to two years!).
