What to Wear to a Winery…and Charlottesville VA Travel

Good afternoon Monday. This past weekend was amazing. Friday night was spent in downtown Charlottesville, walking around after an amazing dinner at a South African restaurant. We went to Zocalo, a local restaurant/bar and just sat and people watched for most of the night. We’re those people. But seriously, it was totally entertaining. People came in in Halloween costumes and they opened up a dance floor so you can imagine the fun we had watching everyone. Saturday was spent “winery hopping,” with one brewery mixed in for lunch. The hubs and I both ate way too much food but it was worth it. Beautiful day, wonderful company, and more wine samples than I’ve ever had my entire life. We had the best time. I had been to a winery many years ago when I worked at an agricultural research station during the summer. It was all business then but this weekend was plain fun. Besides the tasty samples, the grounds were gorgeous. Not quite as beautiful as summer (the leaves were all dried up) but still something to look at. And we couldn’t have asked for better weather.
As for the outfit, I wanted something that was classic but comfortable. I knew we were going to be walking around a bit and so I chose flat boots over heels. I’m so glad I did because we ended up walking through the vineyard a bit and heels would’ve definitely been a poor choice. We took the little pooch with us and you can see how much fun he had in the pictures below. 
Have you all been to a winery before? What was your experience?
