Wine is intrinsically linked to culture. We often think of the food and wine experience in countries around the world as “part of the culture,” but wine permeates many other areas of our lives beyond food. Art, music and fashion are just a few other parts of society that goes hand in hand with wine culture. After all, if you can have great taste in fashion and also great taste in wine, why not put the two together for a perfect pairing?

 

‘Pinot Please’ Sweater & Pinot Noir

We are in love with Brunette the Label in Vancouver, BC. Especially when they’ve got one of our favourite Fall grape varieties, Pinot Noir, front and centre on a casual, comfy sweater. Pinot Noir is the best sipping wine for lazy Autumn days at home in your Pinot sweater.

Syrah Wine & This NASA Sweater

Give a cheers to NASA, celebrating their 60th Birthday this year, in this handmade sweater from Granted Sweater Co. Each sweater is knit by hand and can take nearly 25 hours to make. Uniquely Canadian with a showroom in Richmond, British Columbia. A big sweater like this need a big wine and we recommend a juicy, smoky Syrah (aka Shiraz) from the Okanagan Valley.

Chardonnay & A Camel Sweater Coat

A stylish sweater from MODOVA out of Poland doubles as a long, light coat on breezy Fall days. We recommend a cool climate Chardonnay with a hint of oak for a little more texture and weight.

Merlot Wine & The Cherry On Top Sweater

#SlayAllDay in this eye-catching sweater from Atlanta company My Closet Slays. It’s not quite Cabernet Sauvignon season, but we do love a Merlot that’s big enough to take on cooler weather. Look for a Merlot with flavours of liquorice, raspberry, cocoa and cherry cola for a decadent wine experience.

Pinot Gris Wine & A Heather Gray Sweater

Why go to a store when your boutique can come to you? That’s why we love Souther California’s Dahlia Traveling Boutique. Brighten up your Fall wardrobe with this heather grey sweater available in the Fall 2018 collection and why not grab a glass of Pinot Gris while you’re shopping? Pinot Gris isn’t always the light style Pinot Grigio your Grandmother drinks at Thanksgiving. Sometimes it’s rich an decadent like the Pinot Gris of Alsace, France or has big, ripe fruit flavours like the wines of California.
