Divine Winetherapy- In Vino Veritas by Jeanne Lurie

Vinoterapia Divino; The sound of it just rolls off the lips in a most delicious, seductive and divine way.

It smells divine, feels divine and it is divine for you and your skin!

Wine is even praised in the bible as a gracious divine blessing.

The root of the word divine as well as wine is literally Godlike; from the Deus in Latin, Zeus in Greek, Div in Persian, Deva in Sanskrit  and Yayin in Hebrew.

The conception of the miraculous origin of wine goes back into distant history and ancient mythology. The birth of wine in agriculture as well as the origin of Bacchus or the God of wine can be dated to more than 8000 years BC.  The Divine or miraculous origin of Wine is anidea that is shared by many ancient cultures due to the fact that wine is a drink that ferments by itself.

Wine therapy is a relaxing, stress releasing massage technique using the active principles of the grape and fermented mosto or the left-overs after the grape has been pressed to produce wine. (Never have left overs felt so good) Wine therapy has antioxidant, detoxing and regenerating properties. The technique is based upon ancient Indian ayurvedic massage technique.  Ayurveda is considered to be the oldest known medical system in the world still highly effective and it´s principles are employed in natural health techniques right up to the present day. Ayurveda principles place a strong emphasis on balancing body, mind and spirit. Ayurvedic techniques are used to ease physical discomfort or dis – ease, relax the mind and to bring inner peace and calm to the spirit.

Wine therapy technique makes use of warm linen sacks or poultices to help to apply pressure and warmth into aching muscles and contractures. One of the advantages of working with these warm sacks is that a firm pressure can be applied to the joints to help to ease tension and discomfortBlood circulation is as well as helping to produce a detoxing effect to the skin. The ingredients used in the poultices are 100% grape extract, making use of the pulp, the seeds and the skin. Wine therapy is therefore rich in flavonoids and polyphenols, both important ingredients in maintaining youth and health. The principle role of the flavonoids is to aid in the interchange at a cellular level and to increase the elimination of toxins. Red grape is recognized for its value as an anti-oxidant due to the polyphenols whose function is to fight against the free radicals responsible for premature ageing of the skin. The grape also contains natural alpha –hydroxides which are known for their capacity to regenerate and to smooth the surface of the skin, to aid in the elimination of dead skin cells and to stimulate the production of collagen so important for the firmness of the skin.

To really spoil yourself begin with a wine and caviar scrub to cleanse and exfoliate the skin followed by a relaxing, stress releasing wine therapy massage technique which leaves you feeling divine with a happy healthy glow to your skin and to your spirit with not the slightest touch of a hangover!!

Son Net Hotel

                         MALLORCA’S FINEST LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOTEL GRAN HOTEL SON NET

 

Mallorca’s finest boutique hotel

The Son Net Estate dates to 1672, with its original well and patio, set against the rugged Sierra Tramuntana Mountains (now declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site. The luxury hotel Son Net was opened in 1998. The exterior villa accommodation were constructed using traditional stone, wood and tiles, the handcrafted stucco walls throughout retain the feel of an authentic Mallorcan villa and traditional ‘Tela de Lenguas’ fabrics, which are hand-crafted on the island have been used in the public areas.

The centre piece in the Oleum Restaurant is an impressive historic olive press providing an exquisite stone and

Only 15 kilometres from Palma, Mallorca’s capital, Puigpunyent is a small village dominated by the impressive estate of Son Net. Legend has it that the land surrounding Son Net once belonged to a pirate turned nobleman who had fought for the Christian King Jaume I to expel Mallorca from the threat of its marauding corsairs. There has been a house on the original is site for a thousand years, but the present building dates back to the 17th century, when it served as a country retreat for an aristocratic family from Palma descendent of the Net family.

Later a vast olive press was added, and as the property became more intensively farmed, the house itself began to fall into neglect. Over the last century several attempts were made to restore Son Net, but it never regained its original character and elegance as a grand estate.

David Stein, a successful American Resort developer, had been searching southern Spain for some time for a European house where he could live and work for part of the year. He was immediately taken with Mallorca but less so with the houses he was shown. Then he drove up the palm-lined road leading to Son Net.


“The moment I saw the house through the palms, I was bowled over,” Stein says. “The terrible thing was, I couldn’t hide my enthusiasm, although I knew from long experience that that was disastrous when you wanted to buy. Then we went into the house, and my face fell dramatically once I realized how much restoration there was to be done. But I decided to go ahead, because all the bones – the situation, the land, and the basic structure – were right and I felt that with time and patience, the necessary improvements could be achieved.”

OLEUM RESTAURANT – THE BEST OF MEDITERRANEAN DINING IN ELEGANCE AND COMFORT

The Oleum Restaurant is the hotel’s main restaurant. The word ‘Oleum’ is Latin for olive oil – considered to be the liquid gold of the Mediterranean. The restaurant offers a stylish and intimate environment featuring a beautifully restored period olive oil press that dates back to the 17th century, which although is not being used, is in complete working order. Chef, Sebastian Campins, and his team offer a selection of innovative Mallorcan dishes, applying modern techniques to locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
