There’s nothing quite like a girls’ trip to wine country like Napa or Sonoma. It’s relaxing, it’s beautiful, and the food and wine are incredible. You just can’t go wrong. The last few times I’ve visited I’ve grown to like wine country a little more. I’ll be honest, my first visit wasn’t ideal. It rained, it was gloomy and it was after harvest. But ever since, it just keeps getting better.
Visiting wine country with friends for a girl’s getaway or bachelorette weekend is such a fun way to indulge and relax and get in some quality girl time. But packing for wine country for the spring and summer is key! You want to be laid back California cool, but also stylish and ready to go from wineries, to downtown Napa in style.
For wine country, in the spring and summer, I love to pack lots of dresses. Flowy, comfortable dresses allow you to sit and enjoy wine without worrying about your pants getting too tight. Because, hello bloat, right? I always pack a denim jacket for a good light layer. And as for shoes, keep it simple and low. There’s no need for high heels. In fact, I prefer a good block heel in case you end up heading into the vineyards to do a little exploring. You won’t want a heel digging into the ground. Sneakers or converse are also a good call and work well with jeans too.
A few other notable items to pack is a swimsuit just in case, sunscreen and of course sunglasses. I also love to pack this setting powder with SPF. It’s great to keep in your bag so you can easily add SPF to your full face of makeup.
