Three-hour encounter with our birds of prey. Learn basic field etiquette and witness amazing aerial demonstrations as we walk through the vineyards at Bouchaine Winery.

The Bouchaine Vineyard Falconry Experience is a three-hour, hands-on encounter with trained birds of prey. A rare opportunity to tour Bouchaine vineyards and fly our birds of prey as we walk along through the grape vines.

Have you ever imagined touring a classic vineyard while you fly a Bird of
Prey? Come to Bouchaine Vineyards for a once in a lifetime experience! The falconers of West Coast Falconry Center will teach you to fly a falcon as we enjoy wandering though the vineyard at Bouchaine to the top of the knoll, boasting 360’ views. Once we arrive at the knoll (and take some pictures) we will switch out birds and work with one of our hawks who will fly to and from the guests whilst returning to the winery. Back at the Bouchaine, you visit the tasting room to experience some delightful Bouchaine wines. Your falconers will be on hand with a variety of raptors, including your flying partners, giving you the opportunity to learn about the raptor’s natural history, conservation and their role in the vineyard environment.

Photo opportunities abound and you’ll have plenty time to have your questions answered. Guests are invited to bring a picnic to enjoy at Bouchaine Garden. Immerse yourself in the raptor and vineyard world. A great gift for someone special, including yourself!
