Agnes Freeman is a Hungarian, European trained skin care specialist who believes her services are a gift of herself and a gift of love. Her philosophy shows in her calm, friendly manner. Just her lilting voice put me at ease. Before starting my 60 minute treatment, I was seated and offered a glass of Oak Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon – to drink. Agnes said that sipping a glass of wine is one of life’s most relaxing rituals. She began to extoll the virtues of wine and wine components for beautiful skin.
Moving into modern days, a professor of Pharmacy at the University of Bordeaux discovered that grape seeds are rich in polyphenols, which have positive effects on human skin. Grape Seed Oil is stronger and more effective than Vitamin E when topically applied. I am now ready to experience improved skin texture with reduced signs of aging and wrinkles.
My recollection gets a little hazy here as I allow myself to thoroughly relax and melt into the experience. I did manage to ascertain that the Vino Therapy facial costs $75.00. It is an ideal treat for anyone after a day of Temecula vineyard touring and tasting. Eminence Organic Skin Care products are sold at the salon and I purchased several to use at home as I am now a believer in Vino Therapy every day.
