FLIGHTS OF FASHION
Vino Volo Tysons invites you to brush up on your autumn sartorial savvy while tasting wines paired with the hottest looks of the season this Saturday.

When/Where:

  • 4-6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12
  • Vino Volo Tysons
  • 1782 International Drive
    Tysons Corner, VA 22102
  • Get the skinny on fall's coolest fashion trends–think key cuts, fabrics, bags, boots and must-have pieces–paired with (what else?) a stylish custom flight of fall's most fashionable wines. We're rocking Valentino with Albariño, a cool winter puffer with Pinot and embellished clutches with Cab, so you can take in fall's hottest sartorial hits while sipping your way to autumnal wine savvy, too.

    Event Deets:
    Created in partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue, this not-to-be-missed event will feature three looks curated by Politics of Pretty blogger Kara Manos, who will be on hand to share her tips on the season's trends. While Kara shares inspiring pieces for your fall wardrobe, a Vino Volo wine associate will share insider tips on the splendor that's in your glass. Recently recognized by Refinery29 as a DC style maven to watch, Kara brings her trademark passion for all things sartorial to this anticipated event at our new Tysons store.

    What we'll be pouring:

    • Mar de Vinas Albariño, Spain, Rias Baixas, 2012
      A rich, brisk white pairs perfectly with an early fall look showcasing the sexy charcoal hue seen across the runways for Fall 2013

    • Alysian Pinot Noir, Sonoma, Russian River Valley, 2010
      A soulful, spice- and berry-driven red partners a winter sport look replete with cherry slacks and (*we hear*) Kate Middleton's fave new boots

    • Raymond Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon “Sommelier Selection,” California, North Coast, 2010
      An earthy, spot-on Napa Cab matches up with fall-ready work-to-evening threads for maximum impact at the office or on the town
    • Get Your Tix:
      Your $25 ticket includes a flight of wine (3 generous pours), viewing of fall fashions from Saks and cool wine lifestyle atmosphere. Order online.
