It’s the age-old question as you embark on a day of sipping age-old wines: what do I wear? Take your pick from a host of big-name wineries and boutique gems as we navigate summer day trip planning and their corresponding dressing codes. We’ve rounded up some of the most acclaimed destinations on Victoria’s vineyard circuit and selected his and hers Harrolds outfits to parade and pinot in.
Outfits to parade and pinot in
Mornington’s magnificent Point Leo Estate calls for chic, structural attire. The stalwart of culture, world-class dinging, art and wine celebrates everything considered and tailored. We’re summoning Tom Ford suiting and sleek footwear for him, and geometric beauty from Petar Petrov paired back with Bottega Veneta slides for her. With 50 acres of vines, a spellbinding sculpture park and exquisite restaurant to flit between, you’ll want to balance comfort with considered design. ptleoestate.com.au
Sashay into the Cellar Door Piazza café and restaurant in an elevated smart-casual ensemble. The restaurant feels like a food-filled looking glass onto one lush sea of green. At the tasting station, Montalto’s finest are showcased for you to graze on and admire as you would a Bottega. Sip, stroll and stick to daytime dressiness for a stint at this Red Hill icon. montalto.com.au
Next stop: the Yarra Valley. Go for high-shine dressing, as potent as the wines in this renowned palace. Opt for opulence and princess-esque accessorising with Amina Muaddi and Balenciaga for the Zonzo woman. And there’s no going past a classic Tom Ford blazer as you sit down to graze on some of Zonzo’s equally infamous classics. zonzo.com.au
Jackalope invites us to step out in the height of refined, ritzy dressing, redolent of black-tie. Patent Tom Ford boots for him and a glistening Gedebe bag for her will honour and reflect against the glossy interior of Jackalope’s dazzling Doot Doot Doot. The restaurant’s hyper-indulgent aesthetic extends to the expertly-cultivated food and wine plated and poured there. With a structural mini Alex Perry number, you’ll swiftly become part of the furniture in this luxurious food and wine oasis on the Mornington Peninsula. jackalopehotels.com
ST ANDREW’S BREWERY
Think breezy dressing sans bravado for a jaunt at St Andrew’s brewery. An up-dressing of the simple white tee and blue jeans ensemble is in order for the ladies, as we layer up with jett-black adornments to add a laissez-faire edge. From our mens wardrobe, we’ve gone for the same monochromatic palette, Valentino pants and sneakers to relax in. Sip some of St Andrew’s finest brews as you ease into these seriously wearable classics. standrewsbeachbrewery.com.au
