Vinotherapy: Have you tried the latest luxury spa treatment?
You’re on holiday, so why not push the boat out and thoroughly unwind while in wine country with a vinotherapy treatment? There are a variety of places in the region where Rioja in Style can arrange for you to enjoy a vinotherapy spa treatment and relax in gorgeous facilities, including the famous Marques de Riscal hotel.
What is vinotherapy?
Vinotherapy is a beauty therapy process that makes use of the grapes that have been used for wine making. The grape pips and pulp are known for their exfoliating and rejuvenating qualities when applied to the skin. Rioja’s grape products have the added bonus that they come from organic farming. There are several spas in Rioja that offer the treatments.
What treatments might be included in vinotherapy?
Cleansing and exfoliating
Grapeseed mixed with olive oils makes an excellent natural cleanser and exfoliator, which many of the spas in Rioja use for your vinotherapy treatment. Then you may get a massage and a mud wrap or face peel.
Vinotherapy treatments might finish with the application of a rich grape extract serum, maybe mixed with rosa mosqueta and sweet almond oils. You will feel really pampered!
Where can you experience vinotherapy in Rioja?
We at Rioja in Style can help you find and book the perfect vinotherapy spa experience while you’re in Rioja. The spas are often located amid beautiful surroundings, making the most of Rioja’s natural landscapes, so you will really be able to unwind.
One example is the Spa Vinothérapie® Caudalie Marqués de Riscal in Elciego where you can treat your body and mind within the beautiful, lush surroundings of this sympathetically designed hotel. Vinotherapy specialists trained in the Bordeaux wine region use grape treatments to cleanse, soothe and invigorate your skin. Then you can slip into the unique wine-barrel bath and soak in a bubbly mix of grape pomace (the pulp, seeds and juices from the fruit).
You can also choose from the Marqués de Riscal’s heated indoor swimming pool with pummelling water jets, a hammam, Finnish sauna, and jacuzzi, and then finish off with the refreshing rainforest shower. Mmm, bliss!
