The Allison Inn and Spa, Oregon’s first luxury resort serving the state’s wines, will introduce a stay-spa package available February 1 through March 31, 2012. In tribute to women winemakers of Willamette Valley, The Grape Escape with Women, Wine and Spa is a two- or three-night stay (between Wednesday and Friday) that offers pairing tastings and insights with daily spa treatments and garden-to-table cuisine amid a lush locale. The package also provides unprecedented access to some of America’s top vintners and their wines. Also included is access to the inn’s Thursday night Celebrity Wine Tender event, an intimate tasting and conversation with a featured vintner. February and March lineups will exclusively feature Willamette Valley women winemakers offering tastes of their creations as well as conversation on the science and intuition of their craft. This stellar group of Willamette Valley talent includes Anna Matzinger of Archery Summit, Lynn Penner Ash of Penner Ash Wine Cellars, Maggie Harrison of Antica Terra, Melissa Burr of Stoller, and many others.
Wine-themed spa treatments are among the options for the daily spa treatment of your choice. Each guest will receive two 60-minute services from the spa’s Pinot Therapy menu, such as the Divine Wine Facial that leverages the antioxidant properties of grape seed extract to leave skin renewed. Additional upgrade options include the signature Grape Seed Cure, a treatment that includes a body scrub featuring grape seeds harvested on-site. Resort guests also have exclusive access to The Allison’s relaxing sauna and steam facilities; fitness studio featuring Technogym© Kinesis equipment; and serenely spacious, glass-enclosed swimming pool and adjacent whirlpool, open to sky and stars.
