A Tuscan escape close to home, Gervasi Vineyard Resort & Spa’s 55-acre picturesque estate is now home to two new amenities — The Spa and The Cave — rounding out a luxury experience that gives guests many ways to unwind, celebrate, wine, dine, shop and stay.

The Cave is subterranean — a true wine cellar and tasting space — with dim, moody lighting and a dramatic feel. Upstairs and accessible via its own entrance is The Spa, an upscale and serene environment.

“The whole property is very romantic, and having this new building with spa suites and a cellar is right on brand for us,” Andrea Hartman, marketing director, says. “We can tailor any experience a guest is looking for.”

An Elevated Tasting  

 Guests can literally immerse themselves in viticulture — taste, sip and learn about the Gervasi “Winemaking by Design” philosophy in The Cave. The underground space features an intimate wine tasting room and barrel cave with more than 100 vessels storing the estate’s selections.

Two counter-height tasting tables can accommodate up to 32 guests with a nearby stand-up bar for sampling flights. The barrel cave includes seating for 16 guests — a unique venue for a private party. Those who want to get a peek behind the scenes can take a guided tasting tour. “They learn about our process through an introductory video as the wine ambassador leads them through the tasting,” Andrea describes.

The Cave also offers public hours when guests can simply stop in for tastings, shop and take home their favorite bottles. The ambiance, alone, is a trip to wine country right in Canton. Handcrafted furniture, stonework — the space was designed and built with craftsmanship front and center. Andrea adds, “When you step on the property, it feels like you have escaped and gone on vacation.”

Tranquility Awaits  

Upon entering The Spa, guests can indulge in a Tranquility Welcome that sets the tone for the experience. It begins with a tour, providing changing room access, a robe and slippers. Then comes relaxation time in the aromatherapy-infused Tranquility Lounge with a complimentary beverage, including a Gervasi Vineyard wine selection, light refreshment and a warmed neck wrap.

A stand-out service is the Couples Spa Suites, where guests can relax in private quarters and enjoy a chromotherapy steam treatment, rainfall shower and air bath soaking tub. During their time, couples can choose an award-winning wine from the estate and either chocolate-covered strawberries or a platter of select fruits, meats and cheeses.

“It makes a great gift for the newly engaged or married couple celebrating an anniversary,” says Hartman, adding that the spa is open to overnight guests and anyone who wishes to book a treatment.

Gervasi Signature Services were tailored specifically for The Spa and include a Gervasi Signature Massage — an 80-minute treatment featuring herbal poultice and warm oils to revitalize, detoxify, reduce aches and pains, stimulate circulation and increase lymphatic drainage. It ends with a hot-oil scalp treatment and facial massage. The Gervasi Signature Facial is also an 80-minute appointment using advanced cosmeceuticals to lift, refine and calm the skin. Its hallmark is a 24-carat gold-infused mask that rebalances the skin.

For a girls’ weekend or just-because treat, The Spa’s Glam Services features a full menu of nail and hair services, including styling and waxing.

“The Spa is something guests have wanted for a long time,” Scott Swaldo, Gervasi’s president and CEO, says. “It provides hotel guests an opportunity to further enhance their stay with a world-class experience of tranquility and premium spa services. Additionally, it provides local guests the opportunity to drive in for the day for a ‘day spa’ treatment and perhaps enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants, a stop in The Cave or some shopping.”

Gervasi Vineyard is always buzzing, especially during summer. Visit to discover the variety of ways to escape to Canton’s own Tuscan-inspired paradise.
