After our first day in Napa, we moved over to Meadowood for the second half of our stay. Since we were in weekend mode, we spent the afternoon relaxing in the sunshine before making our way over to Newton Vineyard for a little wine tasting on their gorgeous property. We arrived at golden hour, looking out over a vast spread of rolling hills covered in glowing yellow vineyards.
I put together a wine tasting packing guide in this post this past summer and although the season has changed, I still abide by many of those same rules when packing for a weekend there. I just swap out some of the more summery items for cooler weather pieces like sweaters and coats. This denim skirt (last seen in this post) is always a good option especially when I can wear them with my OTK boots for a little extra warmth.
Newton Vineyard sits atop a hill overlooking St. Helena. Not only are the panoramic views memorable, but the property itself is quite special. It has an exquisite English Garden that you can wander through before or after a tasting. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend making a reservation for a tasting.
Rose and I are the perfect wine tasting partners as she likes all the whites while I drink all the reds. A win win situation for the both of us! We got quite tipsy after this flight and ended up in a market buying enough cheese and crackers to last two weeks!
I was so glad I packed this cozy Club Monaco sweater as it was on repeat all weekend long. It’s slightly oversized, making it the perfect lounge piece but still shapely enough to be flattering. I last wore it here with black coated jeans and these leopard booties.
