A Day at the Winery with Sloane Ranger

What to pack for a day at the winery

Virginia Winery Recap

Happy Hump Day, Sloanies! Today we have Rachel from A Blonde’s Moment sharing her day at a Virginia winery. Read on to see what to wear, what to bring, and how to stay stylish for a long day of wine tasting and touring.

There is nothing like visiting a winery in the fall. With the leaves changing to the most beautiful fall shades and the cool, crisp air, it makes for ideal conditions for any fall outing. A few weekends ago, we headed to Virginia wine country to celebrate my birthday. We had a full day ahead of us, so dressing comfortably and packing all the winery essentials was a must.

There are so many things to think about when spending the day at the winery. Comfortable clothes and shoes are pretty high on the list. It was chilly in the morning when we left, but by the afternoon, the sun was shining and the cool fall chill vanished. I opted for THIS cozy poncho and classic black tee which made for a great layering look for the weather. As for shoes, flats are a necessity. Depending on the winery, you may be able to walk through the vineyard so a flat typically works best. Even if you aren’t planning to walk through the grass, it’s a long day on your feet so comfort is key. We were able to walk through the vineyards and the rest of the grounds but because there was rain earlier in the week, the ground was pretty muddy and soft — I’m glad I went with the Hunter boots

Once you have your look figured out, food is next on the agenda. We were planning a full day of wine tasting at two different wineries and although most wineries sell more substantial food {think sandwiches and salads} I decided to pack a few snacks for the car ride and while at the winery. This cute gingham tote from Sloane Ranger was the perfect size to carry all the essentials: rosemary Parmesan crackers, almonds, chocolate and bottled water. Not to mention, I was also able to throw in a blanket {which we, unfortunately, could not use due to the mud!} my phone, wallet, and camera to catch a few snaps of the day. There is even an interior pocket that was the perfect size for a corkscrew! The tote was a mix of function and fashion for a stylish day at the vineyards, something that is often difficult to find.
