we are booked! Thank you, quick question, before we head off on the wine tasting part, is there a breakfast/mimosa? or should we eat before we go on the hot air balloon ride?

We serve a continental style champagne breakfast upon landing which includes fruit, muffins, mimosas and beverages. This is included with the flight.
