100 Fountain Spa Introduces Grape-based Purple Feet Pedicure, Summer Dream Spa Experience Contest

Visitors to Vintage Hotels’ 100 Fountain Spa and Secret Garden Spa will be now able to nourish body and “sole” with the spa’s new Purple Feet Pedicure. The grape-based treatment is not only indulgent but also healthy: it harnesses the anti-oxidant properties of grape extracts, which detoxify the body and skin.

Spa-goers will begin The Purple Feet Pedicure by soaking their tired feet in a luscious whirlpool bath while a roller/shiatsu massage relaxes their back. A perfect spa pedicure follows, featuring a grape scrub and maple-grape mask. The Purple Feet Pedicure is completed with polish. The treatment cost is $95 and includes a glass of wine from a local winery.

The Purple Feet Pedicure uses a “grape pomace”, which is a wine byproduct that mostly consists of dried and ground grape skins, plus some stems and seeds. The Cabernet grapes used for the Pedicure pomace imbue it with a very rich, dark purple colour.

Vintage Hotels also recently announced a Summer Dream Spa Experience Contest with Spas of America. The grand prize winner and a guest can revel in a romantic spa experience at 100 Fountain Spa in the award-winning Pillar and Post, in the heart of Southern Ontario’s beautiful wine country.
