Located at the northwest end of Conesus Lake, Deer Run Winery offers the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the “Little Lakes” region of upstate New York. From this site you have the best chance of actually flying over the lake; and you may even experience a splash ‘n dash.
Prior to the flight, enjoy the quiet front porch of the winery, browse the shop, soak in the beautiful evening; and for when your ride is done, you may even schedule your own special wine tasting.
We have several possible launch sites in Canandaigua, all of which offer an impressive view straight down Canandaigua Lake! We typically meet at the Mercy Flight station, located at the Canandaigua Airport, on Brickyard Rd.

The Balloonist’s Prayer | Origin Unknown
“Once you travelled, the voyage never ends,
but is played out over and over again
in the quietest chambers. The mind
can never break off from the journey.”
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
