Buzz: Spa Bliss

Ever dreamed of doing the backstroke in Barrolo? Soaking in Syrah? Whereas Calistoga’s mud baths may be the quintessential wine country indulgence, today there’s a wine-infused spa experience for everyone with delicious results: glowing skin and a happiness hangover

Live La Dolce Vita—the fountain scene anyway—during the Brunello Ritual at Tuscany’s Adler Spa Resort THERMAE. The epicurean experience includes a grapeseed oil massage followed by a lavish wine soak, and a private Brunello tasting with Italian cheeses. It’s a feast for the senses.


Letting go is as easy as wine, two, three at New York City’s AIRE Ancient Baths New York, where guests can submerge in antioxidant-rich Spanish Ribera de Duero Tempranillo, soak for a glass, and relax afterward with an hedonistic grapeseed oil massage.


If Cabernet splashing and not-so-synchronized swimming is your thing (because…wine), head to Japan’s Hakone Kowakien Yunessun, an over-the-top spa theme park featuring giant pools of red wine that are perfect for floating with friends and snapping Insta pics.


Raise a glass and release in a wine cave when you opt for the Uncorked experience at The Meritage Resort & Spa. A grapeseed scrub followed by a wine and rose hip mud wrap promises to regenerate the skin and refresh the spirit.


The elevated From the Vines experience at Meadowood Napa Valley is our idea of spa nirvana. The three-and-a-half hour treatment package focuses on skincare with a luxurious facial and massage combo using minerals and grape extracts to deeply nourish and protect the skin.
