To celebrate the fourth annual Parksville Uncorked Food and Wine Festival, The Grotto Spa at Tigh-Na-Mara has paired the DiVine Collection from it’s Eminence Organic Skincare line with their award winning treatments.

The signature treatments are like a happy hour for your skin, according to Jenn Houtby-Ferguson, director of sales and marketing for Tigh-Na-Mara. Ripe with polyphenols, Hungary’s famous Tokay ice wine grapes fortify, tone, and restore dynamism to the skin; while decadent champagne grapes help fight free radicals and provide the appearance of younger, healthier skin.

Houtby-Ferguson said the Grotto Spa has different wine-inspired treatments, including the Toast of the Town Facial. Just like a fine wine, you get better with age — but that doesn’t mean your skin needs to look older. The 60 minute treatment promises smooth, younger looking skin with the wine-inspired DiVine collection. The Mimosa Champagne Massage is a pairing of champagne and Tokay grapes during a 60 minute luxurious massage that will moisturize and soothe your skin to a silky finish. For your feet there is the Uncorked Pedicure.

Sit back in the pedicure throne and enjoy a sugar cane exfoliation and a nourishing foot paraffin dip. The DiVine Body Balance is an invigorating champagne sugar scrub, followed by a decadent chocolate truffle wrap and mini facial, finished off with a soothing anti-oxidant rich mimosa champagne massage.
