Here’s a spa practice we love to toast: vinotherapy, the art of celebrating products and treatments containing antioxidant-rich grape skins, seeds and extracts.
Our SpaFinder editor Shari Rosenberg has taken you through a quick tour of select spas in Sonoma, but spas around the globe – whether located in wine country or not—are offering a cocktail of vino-inspired treatments, acclaimed for their anti-aging and free radical-fighting properties, on their menus.
You might not think “wine region” at these spa locales, but they offer vinotherapy services that we raise our glass to.
Here’s a sample:
- Peppermill Resort Spa Casino – Reno, Nevada
Wine Down full-body massage with warmed grapeseed oil; 50 or 80 mins, $110-$160
- Caudalie Vinothérapie Spa at The Plaza – New York, New York
The term vinothérapie is trademarked by Caudalie, and the entire spa menu – think cabernet scrubs, wine maker’s massage and barrel baths filled with vine-based extracts – uses natural grapes and the fruit’s restorative polyphenols; prices vary
- Rosewood Crescent Hotel – Dallas, Texas
Sauvignon Massage with grapeseed extracts and oils; 50 mins, $115
Texas Crush cabernet grapeseed scrub; 50 mins, $105
- Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge – Charlotte, North Carolina

- Spa Gaucin at St. Regis Monarch Beach – Dana Point, California
