Napa used to have a handful of wineries and back in the day they actually offered free tastings. Now a days the wine and hospitality industry have taken the Napa Valley to new heights. It truly is a blessing to have one of the worlds most sought after destinations in your backyard.

Beyond Basic Blog What to Wear Wine Tasting Line Dot Geo Lace DressWhether it’s a short stop at a winery on the way to dinner or a full on day of tastings, I realized I go wine tasting pretty regularly. Since I am a native from the area, I felt it was appropriate to share my knowledge about what to wear, some favorite spots and a couple tips for those who have never gone to Napa or out wine tasting. No matter what your plans are for wine tasting, I strongly feel that if you truly want to enjoy the wine and ambiance of Napa, you need to dress appropriately. Here are a few tips to insure your outfit is wine tasting ready.

Dress up, but also dress comfortably.

I absolutely love get dressed up to go wine tasting. I usually wear sun dresses during the spring, summer and even fall (it’s still relatively hot in the valley until October). If dressing up isn’t your style, your safest bet is to wear classic pieces. An easy to style shirt dress is perfect for wine tasting and you most likely already have this piece in your closet. Pair it with a colored cardigan.

DRESSY

CLASSIC

CASUAL


Leave the stiletto heels at home.

If you’re planning on doing an entire day of tastings, you’re most likely going to be doing a lot of walking. There are a few wineries where you might be indoors and/or seated, but inevitably there will be one winery where you will have to walk through a bit of dirt and grass. My advice is to ditch the heels and opt for cute sandals. If you are the person who just cannot live without the height, try on a pair of chunky heels or wedges. They are just as dressed up and will give you the stability you need to walk around the grounds.

WEDGES

CHUNKY HEELS

FLATS & SANDALS


Bring a stylish sun hat.

While it’s not entirely imperative you bring a hat, I always find myself ending up under a lot of sun. Also if you are seated outdoors, chances are you may be at a table with minimal shade. I always like to bring a hat just in case. I am very conscious about wearing sunscreen on my face and body so adding a hat provides extra sun protection. You’re probably going to end up red in the face from all that drinking anyway, don’t get burned by the sun in the process!


Do not be afraid to wear white.

You’ll probably hear the opposite from other guides about wearing white, but I’ve never had any issues and I’m a pretty clumsy person. Just be extra mindful while your sipping on that glass of cabernet.


Limit your beauty items.

Wearing strong perfumes, colognes and deodorants are usually frowned upon when you’re out wine tasting. It’s really difficult for you (and others) take in the scent of plums in a merlot when you’re wearing an eighth of a bottle of Flowerbomb on your body. Also, while I am still an offender, skip the lip stick and lip gloss. Try using a regular or tinted lip balm instead.

I donned this gorgeous white, geo lace dress by Line & Dot. You may have seen this dress on many other bloggers, so it’s no surprise that is actually sold out. I purchased it awhile back and have been waiting for the right moment to wear the dress. Never in my life have I received so many compliments on an outfit while I was out wine tasting. It’s truly one of my favorite pieces and I cannot wait to find another occasion to wear it again.
