Seven hotels and spas offering vinotherapy treatments

Doing Dry January? These spas could convince you to fall off the wagon in style.

While many try to give up the drink in the first month of the year in a bid to detox from Christmas indulgences, we at the drinks business believe there are much better ways to go about it.

Vinotherapy — also written “Vinotherapie” — describes a beauty therapy process where the residue of wine making (the pips and pulp) are rubbed into the skin. The pulp is said to have excellent exfoliating qualities and help reduce the problems associated with ageing.

The wine-based beauty treatment has its roots in Medieval history, when grape seed oil was especially popular among the upper class because it was known to soften the skin.

In 1999, cosmetics brand Caudalie revived the European tradition by launching the world’s first vinotherpy spa among the vineyards of Bordeaux’s Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte. Today, hotels in Europe and beyond have followed suit, offering spa treatments for oenophiles of their own.

We’ve rounded up some of the best wine hotels and spas in the world providing guests with the opportunity to get covered in wine to reverse the ageing process.
