Bathing in a tub of red wine is a thing now. Or rather, it has been a thing since the early 1990s, but an Instagram post showing American basketball player Amar’e Stoudemire doing it has highlighted its popularity.
The practice, also known as “vinotherapy”, which uses wine as well as the branches, vines and seeds left over from making wine, is said to have a number of health benefits.
Stoudemire told the Daily News that he has been using vinotherapy for around eight months to aid recovery after games.
