Wine tasting is one of my favorite weekend activities (next to coffee in bed, shopping, and brunch). We are fortunate to live just a few hours from Temecula’s wine country with more than a dozen adorable tasting rooms and vineyards. Wiens is our favorite stop with it’s charming barrel room, outdoor patio, and delish rosé, Cab, and sparkling.
I think my love of wine and wine tasting began while growing up on the Central Coast of California in the middle of the Santa Ynez Valley and near Paso Robles. Wine is a way of life there!
I have a few fashion rules I always follow when wine tasting…
- Comfort is Key – I often see women walking all over the grass and dirt in wedges or even worse, heels. No. Just no. Wine tasting is the perfect time to wear those adorable flat sandals or gladiators.
- Flirty Sundresses For the Win – Jeans or shorts are just not comfortable after a few hours of heat and a few tastings. I prefer maxi dresses or flowy sundresses with a denim jacket (in case it cools of suddenly)
- Just Say No To A Clutch – It’s one more thing you have to hold and keep track of. Opt for a crossbody or shoulder bag for hands free tasting!
- Hats Are Chic – And a great way to keep from getting too much sun on the face. I usually opt for straw styles in the Spring/Summer and wool fedoras in the Fall/Winter.
As always, thanks for reading!
