Wine Women and Wellness 2020

Grab your favorite girlfriends and join us for a Weekend of Wine, Women and Wellness at Ste. Anne’s Spa in Grafton.  Here you can let down your hair, slip into a robe and leave your troubles at the door. To make this an especially memorable event, we have included several informative speakers covering various  topics over the three day stay, exclusive wellness classes with our wellness expert Mona Leedale and of course a selection of Opimian Wines to pair with the fabulous food Ste. Anne's is famous for.   June 18-20, 2020 (3 Days) 

Additional nights starting at $554.00 per person plus HST.  Can’t manage two nights away? Deduct $554.00 if staying the Thursday only.
