Refresh Spa & Boutique spiced up hump day Aug. 10 by hosting its free “Wine Down Wednesday.”

Located at 312 E. Avenue D, the spa will offer the wine tasting the second Wednesday of each month featuring a Central Texas winery, along with light refreshments and raffle prizes.

“We wanted to make a social event for people to get to know us, plus there is no place in town doing anything like this event,” said Sharon Tabor, manager.

Gill Bledsoe, winemaker for Pillar Bluff Vineyards in Lampasas, brought three wines for the tasting: a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, a desert wine Au Poire (pear) and Founder’s sweet red. It was his first visit to the spa and said the event was a great pairing of his vineyard’s wines with the business.

“Everyone needs a little time to relax and wine makes an event like this more enjoyable,” Bledsoe said.

A small crowd of about 20 people chatted, sipped, nibbled and shopped as they strolled about the shop.

Copperas Cove resident Stasi Bennett made some “me time” relaxing while browsing the variety of special soaps, hand creams and teas.

“Cove needs more events like this to bring people together for good, quality time,” Bennett said.

During the evening, door prizes including a pair of yoga sandals and discount coupons for spa services were given out.

Enjoying a glass of Founder’s red, Clarence Enochs, of Cove, complimented Bledsoe on the vineyard’s wonderful tasting wines.

“It’s a great way to support a local winery while meeting new friends,” said Enochs.

Since the spa celebrated its one-year anniversary in March, it has added a new HydraFacial MD machine and a sugaring treatment, an alternative to waxing. That’s in addition to its other services, which include massage therapy, manicure and pedicure services, nutrition education and products.

“Business is excellent and we’re very happy with the support from people in Cove,” Tabor said.

The sweet, syrupy flavor of the pear wine appealed to Tamicha Avila, of Killeen, who came to the spa for the overall experience.

“I even scheduled a hydrafacial, ” Avila said, with a laugh. “I love this concept of a casual wine gathering and I think it will be a big success. I’ll come back.”
