We’ve been having a wonderful time so far! Lots of food, lots of wine, and absolutely gorgeous scenery!

What To Wear For Winery Tours And Tastings
The scarf also came in handy for a tasting in the cool barrel room at Dry Creek Vineyard. (I’ll be sharing our favorite wineries, restaurants, and accommodations in a special Wine Country Guide for email subscribers. If you haven’t already subscribed, just use the form at the bottom of this post.)
If you’re planning to do winery tours and tastings, here are a few wardrobe suggestions:
- Unless it’s a special event, you don’t need to dress up more than “smart casual.” (But be neat.)
- Bring layers: on winery tours you may move between vineyards or other warm outdoor locations to cool caves, cellars, or barrel rooms. I’ve found that either a wrap or lightweight sweater should be sufficient in warmer months.
- Wear comfortable shoes that can accommodate walking on dirt/gravel surfaces.
- For outdoor tours and tastings, you may want a brimmed hat for sun protection.
We’ve moved over to Napa Valley side now for a couple more days. We’ve lucked out so far, and haven’t been impacted by power outages. It’s very hot, dry, and windy though, so I definitely understand the danger and the need for caution.
I’ll share some Out To Dinner outfits an an upcoming post.
Updated to add: I’m seeing there’s now a major fire burning a few miles north of where we were staying earlier in the week. We’re currently safe and some distance from it, but my thoughts go out to those impacted and all of the courageous first responders.
