Take the wine cure in Martillac

From the March 26, 2001 Issue of New York

Wine and spa treatments are two things that make any weekend more pleasurable, so why not combine them? At Les Sources de Caudalie, a spa in Martillac, France (in Bordeaux), you can get Merlot Wraps, Crushed Cabernet Scrubs, or Pulp Friction massages, all while imbibing as much wine as you want. There's a hammam (a Turkish steam bath adored by the French), a swimming pool, and a vineyard. You can lounge in a wine-barrel bath, or get a Vinolift anti-aging treatment. There's even a three-day Grape Cure package during the harvest season, where you eat nothing but grapes. Though you might, if you're so disposed, have to peel them yourself.

Les Sources de Caudalie, 888-465-8383 or www.caudalie.com (daily rates start at $200; spa treatments not included). Go during September harvest. From Paris, it's a one-hour flight or three-hour train ride to Bordeaux; the spa picks you up at the airport or train station.
