Something about a winery elicits an air of sophistication and old-world refinery. Deciding on what to wear can sometimes be difficult, as different events call for different attires. Here are some general guidelines to ensure your dress is fitting for a winery:
Wear Comfortable Shoes
Consider the terrain of the winery when choosing the type of shoes to wear. Not all wineries provide seated wine tastings, so your shoes should be as comfortable as possible. Wear flat sandals, wedges, or suitable slides.
Avoid wearing heels so that you won’t trip all over the vineyards and risk twisting your ankle. Uneven terrain like cobblestone can be incompatible with heels. Keep in mind that you may be standing for a while while touring the beautiful scenery. Comfortable shoes can protect your feet from damage.
Consider going to wineries hands-free or with a small purse. There may be a variety of activities, such as holding glasses or reading and holding brochures. You may lose the bag amid all these activities.
If you are not comfortable being hands-free, try a cross-body bag or a bag with an easy-open top to easily access your belongings.
Go More Dressy Than Casual
Wine tasting is more like fancy day drinking. Wineries are farms, but with a high-end atmosphere. It may be best to opt for a more classy look than a casual one. Try wearing a lovely dress with a good print, or some slacks with a button-down shirt. You may feel underdressed in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
Wear Chapstick or Stay-All-Day Lipstick
