Wine Tasting Fashion: Fall 2018

Wine Tasting Fashion: Fall 2018

The days of sweating through your sundress are over for the year, and it’s officially fall in California wine country. Luckily for us, it never gets too chilly, and we can still have fun with our outfits! Every time I go wine tasting, I’m almost as excited to dress up as I am to taste some delish new wine. Think about it: almost every borderline clothing purchase can be justified by saying, “Eh, I can wear it wine tasting on the weekend or something.”

Exploring Riedel Glassware

When wine tasting, a lot of time is spent savoring the aroma, the appearance, the flavors, and the finish of the wine.

Upcoming: A Wine Country Wildfire Benefit Dinner and Screening

An upcoming fundraiser combines chef Tyler Florence and winery chef Jeff Mosher to present a multi-course dinner paired with Robert Mondavi wines. Following the meal, there will be a private screening of Tyler’s film Uncrushable, a documentary on the wine country communities affected by last year’s wildfires. Some of the proceeds will go to fire relief. That’s a pretty great night!
