Growing grapes and mashing them into wine seems so simple, but there is a beauty and complexity to this ancient drink. Rows of green vines and stacks of wine-stained barrels create a romantic setting for a late summer wedding. Start with Winifred Bean’s Audrey gown: Luxurious silk crepe drapes elegantly over the shoulders and cinches at the waist evoking early 20th century screen siren sophistication. Gather inspiration from the color of Merlot—a rich red on your cheeks is reflected in a deep burgundy on your nails. Channel a Sonoma sunset with ruby-gemmed earrings framed in brushed gold. Sip on sparkling wine as you wander the vineyard in deep red heels, and prepare for chilly Wine Country nights with a steel gray shawl to warm your shoulders.
