Let me paint you a picture. A beautiful sunset, greenery all around, and hints of grapes in the air. Sounds like something out of a movie right? Well, this is just a basic description of a day at a winery.
Wineries are places where you can channel ‘main character’ energy. Even if it’s your first time there all you have to do is just follow the 5’s of wine tasting – see, swirl, sniff, sip, and savor. Once you get a hang of these 5 steps you’ll be able to get the most out of any winery.
Once you’ve sorted the wine tasting part, it’s time to focus on your outfit. You can NOT show up to a winery in just jeans and a tee. I mean come on it’s just disrespectful to the wine. Most wineries are set up in the countryside and have a relaxing vibe. With that being said, a winery is a place full of flavor and goodness. You too can match the serenity of a winery by stocking up on a few wardrobe staples.
What to Wear To a Winery According to the Seasons
There is no such thing as a ‘specific’ season to visit a winery. It all just comes down to preference. There is something for everyone. Whether you’re a fan of cold winds or rays of warmth, a winery is a great place to unwind.
Each season, however, demands a different wardrobe so you need to know what clothing pieces will work in which seasons. 2022 is the year of celebrating all kinds of fashion. Here is a quick overview of wardrobe choices based on the seasons and latest trends.
Springtime is all about new beginnings and what better way to welcome it than by creating a completely new wardrobe. Since the weather is a bit tame you can get away with trousers, blouses, and dresses. These clothing pieces look great when paired with sweaters and cardigans. They keep the spring energy alive while keeping you warm on chilly evenings.
As much as everyone loves summer, it’s no secret that things get overheated rather quickly. Nevertheless, channel your summer energy by sporting vibrant colored outfits. If you have a yellow outfit lying around somewhere, now is the time to wear it. Gravitate towards minimalistic prints and lightweight fabrics to get the best out of your winery experience.
Really want to go to a winery but not when it’s too cold or when it’s too hot? Fall is just the season for you. The weather during fall is as if it was made for drinking wine. Another specialty about this season is that it’s also harvesting time. It’s probably the busiest time of the year but then again, who wouldn’t want to go grape picking?
When it comes to fashion you can start layering up your clothes. For example, a simple button-down, an oversized blazer, and a scarf when paired together can create a sophisticated and classy outfit. There are a bunch of different dresses, coats, and trousers that you can mix and match to create fall-worthy looks.
Going to a winery for some peace and quiet? Say no more. Wineries in winter are usually more peaceful and secluded. When it comes to clothing, layering is the way to go. Chunky knits, leather jackets, and cashmere sweaters are some brilliant choices.
Outfit Ideas for a Winery
Now that you have a general idea as to what clothing pieces work in which seasons, let’s talk outfits. Creating an outfit that is comfortable but polished is a difficult task but not impossible. It’s all about picking out the right pieces and adding on accessories to elevate the overall look.
Here are 5 different outfit ideas that you can wear to a winery.
A Shirt Dress with Block Heels
Wineries are like candy shops for adults. The pre-winery excitement is real and the best way to keep yourself busy is by planning a perfect outfit. If you plan to visit a winery during the warmer months then we have just the summer-chic outfit for you.
Pair a striped shirt dress with brown block heels. You can swap the heels for sandals but, heels just add to the elongated effect of the dress. Make sure the dress has a belt so it cinches in your waist. Tie a chic high pony and add on a pair of sunnies. All that’s left is a glass of wine to complete your look.
Floral Dresses and Sun Hats
Sipping wine while wearing a dress just feels different. Dresses with floral prints are the best options when it comes to summertime outfits. They are eye-catching, attractive, lightweight, and elegant altogether. There are many different styles to choose from, the best one being maxi dresses.
Pair a floral printed, maxi dress with espadrilles (or block heels). Add on a sun hat and a cute matching bag. This overall look is light, breezy, and doubles as a brunch outfit. Food and wine? It doesn’t get any better than this.
Jumpsuits and Block Heels
Looking for a no-fuss outfit idea? Jumpsuits are the way to go. These one-piece outfits look fabulous and are easy to dress up. Off-the-shoulder jumpsuits are a particularly great option for the springtime.
Try pairing a black off-the-shoulder linen jumpsuit, with beige block heels. Add on a fedora and keep accessories to a bare minimum. If it gets a bit chilly in the evening, you can drape a blazer over the jumpsuit. The look is minimal but definitely makes a statement.
Chunky Knits and Boots
Fall time is all about bundling up but not to the extent that you end up dreading your outfit. Chunky knit sweaters are a great option for the fall time. Pair them with skinny jeans for the perfect fall look.
For a more western-themed outfit, you can add on a pair of tan knee-high boots and a straw hat. The look is easy to style and works with so many different color combinations.
Burgundy Dress and Black Accessories
It’s quite common for wineries to be used as wedding venues. Weddings like these are low-key but do have a specific dress code. Dresses are the preferred clothing style when it comes to most weddings.
Dresses in certain colors just exude elegance. Burgundy is one such color. When paired with black it creates an expensive-looking color palette. For the perfect winery wedding look, pair a lace burgundy dress with black high heels. Complete the look with a clutch and soft waves.
Before settling on an outfit, you have to consider certain things.
– What the occasion is
– What the weather is like
– What season it is
Vineyard outfits are all about looking put together while feeling comfortable. You can wear dresses, skirts, shirts, trousers, coats, and jackets, all depending on your plans at the winery.
Summertime in vineyards tends to get a bit hot. Choose light-colored and lightweight fabrics to beat the heat. Flowy dresses, skirts, shirt dresses, and off-the-shoulder blouses are some great clothing options.
Dresses are the best option to wear to a wine tasting party. Other options include jumpsuits or a cute top and jeans. The main idea is to be comfortable but still look classy.

When it comes to your outfits, keep them sleek and classy. Add on accessories and pick shoes that you find comfortable. Remember to avoid high heels and you’ll be just fine.
