Going on a wine tour around Cape Town can be a lot of fun. With so much to do and experience, your clothing options will depend on your itinerary for the day. With your comfort being top priority, here are five tips for dressing for your wine tour.
#1 Wear Comfortable Footwear
Most wine tours do offer seated tastings, but as you are navigating through numerous wine farms you’re likelier to spend a fair amount of time on your feet. Should you wish to navigate the different wine farms and take a stroll through the vineyards, you want to do so in comfort. Pack your heels away and put a pair of sneakers on instead.
#2 Ensure You Have Sufficient Layers On
Because you probably booked your wine tour in advance, ensure you have sufficient layers on to accommodate a change in weather. As the Cape’s weather is unpredictable, you don’t want your tour to be spoiled due to you getting cold. Should it turn out to be warmer than you expected, you are able to take off one or two layers and still be comfortable.
#3 Keep Your Outfit Simple
As mentioned before, you want to be comfortable when you are on your wine tour. So when you are choosing your outfit for the day, choose something that is fuss free so you can give your full attention to your wine and fun and not fuss about straps that keep falling off or a fabric that is itchy.
#4 Don’t Wear White or Light Colour Clothing
We’d recommend you didn’t wear white on your wine tour and if you do, do so with caution. If you are inclined to be clumsy or are on the wine tour with people who are inclined to be clumsy, pack the white clothing away and avoid it being damaged. Although most wine stains can be removed from clothing, avoid having to stress over potential spillage by not wearing light or white clothing.
#5 Let Your Hair Loose
Whatever hairstyle you choose for the day, try and choose something that’s easy to maintain such as a pony-tail. If you are going to let your hair down, do so in style by clipping it out of your face. The last thing you want is your hair going into your wine glass.
