Light ‘em up up up: Rewined Candles are inspired by wine

These candles have a good nose

The Rewined Candles story goes… a guy was working at a restaurant in Charleston, SC and saw a lot of discarded wine bottles. He had the idea to use the bottles to create candles that mimic wine. Word spread, and now the candles are carried in retail shops all over the country.

The candles are hand-cut in Charleston, SC and all have scents related to wine. Several styles and many scent varietals are available like Prosecco, Champagne, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. Sounds like your wine fridge, right?

The descriptions read like a wine label. The Chenin Blanc candle is “a zesty, yet dry white varietal, this versatile wine has notes of white grape, ripe apricot, and a dash of ginger. Look for a soft, sweet finish of light musk and honeycomb.” Don’t worry, the candles don’t make your house smell like spilled wine!

The signature collection is the original wine bottle candle created by Rewined, and are hand-cut from a wine bottle. These are so pretty make excellent gifts! Rewined has expanded to several collections, including wood, tin, and cut glass.

Why are soy candles better?

How Stuff Works answers why soy candles are better with 10 reasons… the most compelling? “Soy won’t ruin your walls or fabric. The emissions from paraffin candles build up on walls, staining the paint in your home. They also build up in upholstery fabrics and in carpets, affecting the air quality in your home.” Ew. We’ll light a soy candle and not ruin our fabric, thanks.
