On Thursday I visited a most majestic wine place. Let’s put it this way – what’s better than drinking wine? Yes, being lathered in it! I heard about Caudalie at the Kenwood Inn and Spa a few months ago, and knew I had to check it out when the time was ripe. Especially because it’s the only vinotherapie spa in the U.S.
It’s like the owners turned their tiny part of the old Sonoma Highway into Aix-en-Provence, with its charming cobblestone corners and ivy-covered walls. After my wine bath and cabernet massage, I indulged in lunch and then paid a facilities fee to stay the remainder of the day, sunbathing and taking advantage of the endless trays of Port at every turn. For more details on the spa and treatments, look for a longer Travel story by me in the coming months.
