#1. Spring Wine Tasting
Outside, walking among the vineyards is a wonderful experience especially in spring. Leave the heels at home and dress for comfort. Be sure to check the weather before you head out in case of rain.

Plan for a fun day outdoors! Wear light breathable layers such as cotton or linen and don’t forget to bring a light sweater in case you are headed into the cellars. A one-piece romper brings out a casual party vibe while you stay comfortable.
