The Grape Escape To Oregon Wine Country With Women, Wine & Spa

Honoring its Willamette Wine Valley roots, The Allison Inn and Spa, Oregon’s highly acclaimed and first luxury destination resort serving the state’s wine region, is pleased to introduce a unique stay-spa package available February 1 through March 31, 2012. The Grape Escape, a two-night retreat, celebrates the women vintners of Willamette Valley—pairing tastings and insights with daily spa treatments and garden-to-table cuisine, all in an invigoratingly beautiful setting.

Ideal for a girlfriends’ getaway, mother/daughter vacation, solo rejuvenation or romantic, midweek couples’ escape, Wine, Women & Spa provides unprecedented access to some of America’s top vintners and their wines. As part of a two- or three-night stay between Wednesday and Friday, the package includes 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 included in The Grape Escape. 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.
