Wine Tasting Outfits

If you are stuck on what to wear, look no further. Below, we have listed some helpful tips and tricks to style your outfits for wine tasting that’ll help you look and feel good.

So, let’s jump straight into it.

Wine Tasting Outfits For The Summer

Summer is the second most popular season of the year to visit vineyards and wineries, and for good reason.

The sun will be shining, the sky will be blue, and you can have a fantastic time in the field sipping on wine and tasting some juicy grapes.

If you’re not a fan of the heat, this may not be the best time of the year for you to go wine tasting. The warmth can get pretty brutal, which may even lead to the wine going straight to your head.

Just take your time, and make sure that you are dressed accordingly. We guarantee that you will have a blast, wine tasting during the warmer months of the year.

Here are some ideas and inspiration for wine tasting outfits to wear during the summer.

Nothing feels more classy than walking through a vineyard with a glass of wine, soaking up the sunshine. You’ll want to dress the part, but you’ll also want to feel comfortable; the summer sun is no joke.

Breathable fabrics will be your best friend, whether you’d like to wear a nice, airy dress, or a light shirt and skirt. Cotton or linen would be ideal.

Sunglasses and sun hats will also be worth taking along to protect you from those glaring rays from above.

A breezy dress will look and feel good, but you could also wear a breathable skirt with a lightweight blouse. Also, you will want to wear shoes that are comfortable, as you’ll be walking around a lot.

As a guy, you’ll likely spend less time worrying about your outfit since there are fewer options to choose from. After all, what else is there to wear during the summer other than shorts?

You could wear some longer pants, although you may become overheated as the day goes on. You should wear nice shorts, or nice pants, either way; something that looks professional and classy.

A polo shirt is always a good option during the warmer months, perhaps with a light jacket or shirt if the weather is a little cooler. A sun hat will also be a good idea, as not only will it look good, but it will keep your face shaded.

Wine Tasting Outfits For The Fall

For many people, fall is their favorite season to go wine tasting. The start of fall is probably the best time, as you can visit just before the temperature begins to drop, but it is not so hot that you’ll be sweltering in the field.

The best part about fall is the aesthetics; the multicolored leaves, the muted colors, the gentle sun glistening over nature one last time before winter kicks in. This is a great time for strolling, and also a great time for capturing pictures.

Those working at the vineyard and winery will likely be very busy at this time of the year, so you’ll be less likely to spend any time with them.

However, you can keep yourself entertained while taking in the stunning views, and chomping on some delicious grapes.

Here are some ideas and inspiration for wine tasting outfits to wear during the fall.

Fall is most people’s favorite time to go wine tasting, for so many reasons. One of those reasons is the pictures look fantastic! So, you will want to wear something that’ll look great in the hundreds of snaps that will be taken of you.

Mustard yellow, dark green, and neutral brown and beige are just a handful of the colors that pair so perfectly with this season. As long as you keep these colors in mind, you won’t go far wrong.

The temperature will have dropped at this point, so cropped pants and longer sleeves will be more comfortable to wear, along with a light jacket. Boots will also look great, and feel comfy while you walk around all day. Don’t forget a cute hat!

Since the temperature will begin to drop during the fall, you likely won’t be able to get away with wearing short sleeves anymore. A dress shirt would be more suitable, or a sweater. 

A light jacket would also go a long way, and will keep you warm if the weather gets a little unpredictable as winter edges closer and closer. 

Depending on where you are visiting, you may be able to get away with wearing some jeans with your top. However, some places will have a stricter dress code, meaning that you’ll have to find some nice tailored pants instead.

Wine Tasting Outfits For The Winter

Some may be put off by visiting a winery during the colder months of the year.

Most people envision wine tasting while the sun is shining, the air is warm, and you don’t have to worry about glass getting frozen stuck to your lips as you take a sample.

In reality, visiting wine country during the winter is extremely underrated. The scenery will have an almost magical appearance, thanks to the mist and frost covering the land. 

Plus, since this is the least popular time of the year to go wine tasting, you may even have the whole place to yourself. This may result in the winemakers’ giving you more of their time, providing a much more intimate experience all around.

Here are some ideas and inspiration for wine tasting outfits to wear during the winter.

Outfit Inspiration For Women

During the winter, you are going to want to look good and feel good. If you’re too cold to move your feet, you’re not going to be either! A thick coat is a must, along with some stylish gloves, and perhaps a scarf or a turtleneck sweater.

Black is a great color for the colder months, along with cooler colors and lighter tones. We recommend a pair of black boots, and a matching black purse or clutch bag. 

You’ll want to keep warm by wearing long pants, or some pantyhose if you’re wearing a dress or skirt. You can wear a hat too, if it fits your look.!

Similarly, as the outfits we suggested for winter, we recommend checking out dress codes for each venue before deciding on wearing jeans. Nice pants would likely be more suitable, along with a tight-fitted sweater or shirt.

Since it’s going to be cold, we recommend that you take a comfortable yet stylish coat to wrap you up.

For the same reason, you may want to think about wearing boots. If it has been snowing, your nice shoes might get ruined by the dampness of the soil, so you will need to think carefully about your footwear.

Wine Tasting Outfits For The Spring  

Lastly, we have another time of the year that is also not very popular for wine country visitors. While it may not be as cold as it was in the winter, a lot of people prefer to wait until peak summer to taste some wine.

Fortunately for those who have booked to visit during spring, you will, once again, pretty much have easy access to everything, and will potentially have a more intimate experience with those who work there.

This is because fewer people visit during this time of the year.

In fact, if you are thinking about travelling and booking accommodations, springtime is arguably the best time to visit a winery.

Hotel costs will be down since there will be less tourism following the festive season, and prior to the warmer months of the year.

Here are some ideas and inspiration for wine tasting outfits to wear during the spring.

Outfit Inspiration For Women

With the sun making a return, spring is a great time to rock some cute outfits. It’s basically the same as summer, but without the uncomfortable, blistering heat! This means that dresses without pantyhose can make a return to your wardrobe.

At the start of spring, you may want to wear thicker and tighter-fitted clothing. Towards the end of spring, and the start of summer, you can start wearing more breathable fabrics to keep you cool as you stroll.

You won’t need boots to keep you warm anymore, so find some cute wedges to accompany your outfit. Just be sure to wear shoes that will keep you comfortable as you walk around.

As the warmer months of the year creep up on you, you may want to think about wearing a sleeveless top, like a polo shirt or a short-sleeved dress shirt. If it is still a little chilly out, you could still get away with wearing a nice sweater.

As usual, if you want to wear some jeans, be sure to check out what is suitable to wear at that specific venue. The same goes for shorts. The same option, as always, would be a smart pair of pants.

We recommend taking a light jacket in case the temperature drops, although you may not need it.

Final Thoughts

It is important that you find out if the vineyard/winery that you’re visiting has a certain dress code before you decide on an outfit. Some places have stricter policies about outfits, not allowing people to wear jeans, shorts, etc. 

The best way to find this out for yourself is to take a look at their social medias, and check out their tagged photos. See what everyone else is wearing, and work out what is suitable and what is not.

Otherwise, take this time to get creative, and get excited about your big trip. We hope you found this guide helpful.
