Wine grapes have been shown to contain powerful antioxidants, particularly polyphenols which have priceless benefits for the skin, and resveratrol (red wine extract) which has unique anti-aging properties and promotes increased energy. So it’s no wonder there is now a treatment called vinotherapy, otherwise known as wine therapy, or therapy of the wine grape at The Sorrento Spa at the Vail Plaza Hotel & Club.
Their two vinotherapy skin care lines are Olavie, which specializes in the Chardonnay grape, and d’Vine, which specializes in many red wine grapes. The massage oil and body products use extracts of the red and white wine’s seeds, skin, stalk and pulp. These wine inspired oil and skin products contain a balance of nutrients, vitamins and proteins which are absorbed through the pores to benefit the skin and body. They offer personal spa services that emulate some of Italy’s renowned thermal spas such as body treatments, soaks, massage, facials, and nail treatments. Their main product line, [comfort zone], is based in Italy and their products contain a number of well known Italian ingredients such as verbena, lavender, and extracts of olive oil. These vinotherapy signature treatments include; massages, facials, and body treatments, as well as manicures and pedicures.
