The Simply Luxurious Life®: A Fashionable Wine Country Visit

A Fashionable Wine Country Visit

Photographed by Arthur Elgort for Vogue UK in August of 2009, model Anja Rubik demonstrates the glamour and beauty one can exude and be a part of while visiting the vineyards in California.

The particular editorial immediately grabbed my attention as I love frequenting the local wineries. One of the most enjoyable things to do, is to bring your closest friends or your significant other and wipe clean an entire afternoon.  Begin at one winery and just take your time, get to know the wine maker, ask for a tour of the winery if they aren’t busy and try as many wines as possible, asking the owner to describe what you are tasting, so that you can verbalize it yourself later.  Many wineries have seating areas outside as you see above so be sure to take advantage of them.  And ultimately, when you find a wine you like, purchase it.  There is nothing more nerve wracking for a dinner party when you’re serving wine and you don’t know how it tastes.

Enjoy perusing through the remaining photos and be sure to take advantage of the next opportunity to go wine tasting. I have a feeling you won’t regret it.

And remember boys and girls, Napa isn't the only wine country in Cali, there's also Santa Barbara/Los Olivos wine country as well.
