I took a quick trip this past weekend to see the fall foliage in the Hudson River Valley just outside of New York City. The red and orange leaves were stunning but the highlight of the two days was definitely touring three different vineyards and tasting a variety of delicious reds and whites. It was perfect prep for today, National Red Wine Day. Wine is not only packed with antioxidants and a wonderful way to relax, but also an exceptional spa treatment ingredient to appeal to oenophiles like myself.
Some luxury spas are delightfully centered around vino. The Caudalie Vinothérapie Spa at The Yeatman (Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal), Spa AcQua (Yountville, CA), and The Allison Spa (Willamette Valley, OR) all feature locally inspired treatments with grapes and wine from nearby vineyards.
