It’s grape harvest time, and grapes are once again at the centre of attention. Grapes are a fantastic fruit that, the give us one of the favourite drinks of all time, wine, one that’s full of beneficial properties.

Grape seed oil is emollient, regenerating and rich in antioxidants. It can be applied after showering as a moisturiser, and it’s also a natural remedy against skin ageing. It also helps the microcirculation.

On the market we find many body and face care products made from grapes, that have anti-ageing properties.

Many beauty and wellness centers offer various treatments based on grapes and wine that provide relaxing effects.

This refreshing fruit, energetic and nutritious – and its precious nectar, the wine – are rich in therapeutic virtues that popular wisdom exalts.

In Italian there’s a saying that claims a glass of red wine with your meal “fa buon sangue” (“ is good for the blood”) … so cheers to health and beauty!
