For day, it's best to bring clothing that’s casual without being grungy – avoid sweats and old sneakers, for example. Especially for our visits to First Growth chateaux and other very prestigious estates, slightly more elegant attire is requested and appreciated.  We'll be doing some walking, plus the cellars can be damp, so best to avoid high heels and opt for comfortable shoes for day.  For walks in the vineyards, you’ll want appropriate walking shoes or sneakers. For evening, do bring some dressier clothes for dinners in elegant restaurants. We ask that you not wear baseball caps or wine logo wear. It could be considered rude to arrive at Château Margaux wearing a winery shirt from Australia.
