I've written about wine from Thailand before -- a shocking place if ever there was one for growing wine, so close to the equator. But apparently the Thai are doing it. What's more, I learned yesterday that one of the biggest wineries in Thailand is offering a complete wine tasting experience that ends with a spa treatment including a Shiraz bath.
Aimed "people who don't want to drive immediately after a wine-tasting," the winery first developed a hotel and restaurant, and apparently spa services were the next logical conclusion. The use of wine in those services, was presumably a natural conclusion.
A 30-minute hydrotherapy session at the spa costs 500 baht (about $12.25). Sounds like a bargain if you ask me. What I wonder about is how long it would take for my skin to stop being purple afterwards....
