WINE AND CLOTHES !! (THANK YOU TRING WINERY!!)
I had a little idea the other day, while I was drinking my obligatory glass of wine of an evening, about the relationship between wine and me and why I am attracted to certain wines at certain times. I choose my wine with accordance to how I feel, and it’s the same with my clothes, so I thought I would get some outfit inspiration from the fabulous Tring Winery at the Silk Mill, and try to put together some outfits that would reflect the taste and smell of some of their summer wines! Let’s face it we all love wine and we all love clothes so it’s a match made in heaven.
the first wine is a Riesling from the Domane Wachasu in Austria. It is described as elegant and dry, highlighted with peach and apricot aromas. It has fantastic acidity and a long lingering finish.
the first top that sprung to mind was this beautiful tank by Silvian Heach. With its sophistocated tie (which is detachable) and its beautiful tobacco colour it cuts an elegant line. Dress it down with some jeans and gorgeous ravel sandals or dress it up with this beautiful satin skirt. An obvious dress that springs to mind is this dress from just female. It has a gorgeous asymmetric frill that goes round the skirt and is covered in apricots!!
Wine no 2 is D’Arenburg Money Spider Roussanne From McLaren Vale, Australia. This wine is vibrant with aromas of peach, banana, lemon honeydew and flowers. The palate is tropical with green mango, citrus peel and nectarine. It has a tangy acid back palate.
this wine sounds so summery and fun that I think it demands summer colours!
These fab postcard trousers are definitely fruity and tropical and look great with this lemon top. ( it can also be dressed down with jeans). You could also wear this yellow sundress - dress it up with lots of accessories and maybe a funky hairband to maximise tropical fun!
The 3rd wine is Dopff, Grand Cru Gewurtztraminer from Alsace, France. With expensive notes of honey, spice and candied fruits it has a beautifully balanced palate. This full bodied wine has great finesse. I think this dress covered in rich apricots fits the bill again - it even has a look of summer in Provence ...This gorgeous velvet dress from traffic people is also a winner - with its gold honey and fruity overtones on the pattern, and in a beautiful soft midnight blue velvet it has an expensive feel to it.
Wine no 4 is Domaine Cedres Rose D’Anjou, Loire from the Loire Valley, France. This is a fruity rose with fresh strawberries flavour, white fruit and black pepper. This sequinned dress reminds me of light summer fruit with a bit of an edge. You could also wear this beautiful pale pink top with these light green trousers or some pale skinnies.
No 5 is Michele Chiarlo’s “Palas” Barbera D’Asti from Piedmont Italy is a fruity Cherry scented wine with ripe reds berried fruit. Harmonious with great freshness it has a clean elegant finish. I have put this elegant white blouse with some plain black trousers or this fabulous stripy skirt and little red boots. You could also wear this gorgeous sequinned vest with the trousers for a fresh evening look.
The last wine is Omero Cellars Pino Noir from Willamette Valley Oregon USA..With aromas of redcurrent, strawberry and elderflower it has a palette of raspberry and honeycomb with bright acidity and a smooth velvety texture. I think this 70s inspired dress from traffic people would compliment it perfectly. It is a beautiful raspberry colour and is very shimmery and light. You could alternatively wear this beautiful shimmery top with awesome sleeves and some jeans or pvc trousers for a more dressed down look.
