Women, when going to a five course wine tasting dinner, especially in a beautifully casual setting, do not be afraid to wear your boots.
For dinner at Hidden Meadow Ranch with wines poured by Mitchell Preston of Rodney Strong Wine Estates and a menu created by chef Ben Mule, wore a long silk easy dress, silver and turquoise necklace, gray flat boots, and carried a small black clutch. Not bad for a tender foot east coaster, overheard well-heeled and well dressed professional AZ native woman saying, ‘wish I brought my boots.’
Dressing for dinner is a lovely and important tradition. After a day of archery, trail rides, and an arena lesson, slipping into a dress and wearing a little makeup is a very good thing to do. Every day dress suggests a dress and boots for any dinner at guest ranch after a day of riding.
Thank you Mitchell, Hidden Meadow Ranch, chef Ben Mule, and incredible staff ranch-wide. It was a memorable day and evening indeed.
