In South Tyrol, a land of vineyards and outstanding wines, amidst enchanting landscapes and unspoilt nature, anyone who decides to visit can breathe in and savour the true essence of this product. Walking in the open air while admiring the beauty of the terraces, at the table savouring its full flavour, and in the thermal spas enjoying its therapeutic properties.

Scattered throughout this enchanting region are exclusive facilities where you can indulge in the excellence of the area and experience the benefits of wine therapy.

Scrubs, massages and various types of treatments are carried out with grape-seeds, the waste products of wine production, or actual wine to restore psycho-physical wellbeing and more besides.

The properties of grapes are well known: in particular the flavonoids, which slow down the ageing process, make it an extremely effective skin care product.
