Barrel Tasting Weekend "Get The Look"

March in Healdsburg is idyllic spring weather, cold mornings that waken to warm, balmy and sunny afternoons.  Get this week's look for enjoying your Barrel Tasting Weekend in wine country -- 

New for Spring! Rodd and Gunn have produced a short sleeve, linen button-down in plaid.  Cool earth tones and ocean blues make this elegant and classic item look worn with ease.  The jacket is a heavy linen.  The multiple pockets, and loose, cargo-style cut give the look a rugged, masculine feel weathered by the heavy weight linen.  The jeans are made in America by Agave.  This style is their Pragmatist line -- a classic, straight leg cut, with a little stretch and give make the jean extremely practical and easy to wear.  Beautiful dark, inky-blue colors match with all earth tones -- blues, browns, blacks, and grays.  For the Spring chill, layer it all with a super soft, gray tee from Patrick Assaraf.  95% cotton and 5% spandex make this shirt very comfortable to wear and a little fitted with lots of movement.  

Overall, the look gives an air of ease and comfort while being well put together.  Multiple layers of linens make this outfit versatile for wine country's spring weather.

It's that time of year again, when Healdsburg gears up for the annual barrel tasting weekend series. A single ticket gives you access to over one hundred wineries throughout the three valleys to explore the gorgeous wine country. It's a rare opportunity to taste wines directly from the barrel, meet the winemakers, and buy wine "futures" as a discount.  The lower price point of tickets tends to draw younger and rowdier crowds. You can find information on how to get tickets here:
