Sonoma Lifestyle: Wine Country Spas
The definition of Wine Country living isn’t just about the world-class wine, or even the famous fine dining scene. It’s truly about escaping the stresses of our daily lives and to do so, a visit to a fabulous Sonoma County spa is in order. Rejuvenating massages, facials, and body treatments await to lure you into a state of total bliss.
25 Matheson St, Healdsburg, CA 95448
Farm to table is now a common theme at Wine Country restaurants, but have you ever heard for farm to spa? Hotel Healdsburg, a luxury resort located right off the Healdsburg Plaza, is taking their commitment to supporting local farmers one step further. Incorporating locally-sourced ingredients into their spa treatments, Hotel Healdsburg has created unique, rejuvenating experiences that you can’t get elsewhere, like a meyer-lemon sage massage or wine and honey wrap. Offering a wide variety of massages, facials, and nail treatments, this exquisite spa features six treatment rooms, including a romantic couple’s suite, a garden patio, jacuzzi, and access to the hotel swimming pool, set within a quiet olive grove.

Here’s an idea: cap off a Gary Farrell Winery wine tasting experience with a revitalizing spa treatment at The Farmhouse Inn, located roughly five minutes from the tasting room. Arguably Sonoma County’s most revered luxury inn, you can expect The Farmhouse Inn spa services to be right on par with their Michelin-Star dining. It will be tough to choose from their array of farm-inspired treatments (there’s even one called A Roll in the Hay), but we like the Catherine’s Favorite because it’s a three-in-one, all-body affair. It starts with a lavender-orange hair and scalp treatment, followed by a lavender tangerine body butter massage, and finishes with a lemon verbena foot scrub.

“Vinotherapy” doesn’t just consist of drinking lots of wine. The Kenwood Inn & Spa has a stacked menu of treatments—massages, facials, scrubs, and soaks—to enhance your Wine Country getaway, and some are quite literally infused with wine. Book the Crushed Cabernet Scrub & Massage or the Pinot Noir Bath for something truly one-of-a-kind. Far from city life and set on two-and-a-half serene acres, this Mediterranean-style inn is designed for ultimate relaxation. Many of the treatments are even available in the privacy of the Tuscany Suite, the inn’s largest, most luxurious room.
West Sonoma Inn
14100 Brookside Lane, Guerneville, CA 95446
After a sun-filled day floating, kayaking, or canoeing down the Russian River, nothing will feel better than a massage or facial from the Aurora Spa at the West Sonoma Inn. Get the true West Sonoma treatment with the Russian River Exfoliation. This full body exfoliation treatment features a lavender salt scrub and a lavender body butter to leave your skin feeling baby soft and renewed. Want both? Book the Unravel experience, which pairs your choice of one of their signature facials with a Swedish Massage. After your treatment, unwind in your Vineyard Spa Suite, complete with a two-person hydro spa tub on a private deck and far-reaching vineyard views.
4350 Barnes Rd, Santa Rosa, CA 95403
Vi La Vita, a brand new spa at the luxurious Vintners Inn, will open in September of 2018 with all of the tools for attaining peak relaxation. Surrounded by 98 acres of gardens and vineyards, Vi La Vita will feature a relaxation lounge, an indoor caldarium with a heated pool, an outdoor hot pool with lounge chairs, his-and-her steam rooms, and more. Treatment rooms will come with private garden access, while the couples room will boast a large outdoor patio with a rain shower and lounging area, to really turn up the romance. A list of treatments should be released soon, but in the meantime, you can book an in-room massage during your stay.
