Since the opening of the world’s first official wine spa in the Bordeaux region of France in 1999, high-end spas around the world have followed suit. While the true, trademarked Vinothérapie treatments are only available at Caudalie-affiliated spas like Les Sources de Caudalie in France (the original), wine treatments — considered to firm the skin and slow down the aging process due to wine’s high antioxidant content — are beginning to be incorporated into spa menus around the world.
Adler Thermae Spa Resort
Located in the heart of Tuscany, the Adler Thermae Spa Resort is surrounded by gently rolling hills, terraced vineyards and colorful meadows. Enjoy Tuscan cuisine and relax in the hotel’s spa, which offers massage and exfoliation treatments using organic red grapes. Among these, you will find the Bacchus Ritual (massage and wine bath), the Facial Treatment with Grapes and the anti-ageing Grape Massage. More information on Adler Thermae Spa Resort.
This holistic Wellness Center sits on a 160-acre working wine estate in the Paarl/Franschhoek Valley in South Africa. Simply Spa @ Santé offers true vinothérapie treatments like the Pinotage Vino-Bath Treatment or the VinAqua Vine therapy. Both include an optional “Doctor Fish” therapy, which involves small fish nibbling away at the dead skin on your feet and hands. Don’t worry though, the treatment is safe (for both you and the fishes) and it will leave your skin feeling silky smooth. More information on Santé Winelands.
