I learned about a very cool company called Rewined last year when they partnered with Root: 1 Wine offering a free limited edition Carmenere candle with the purchase of a bottle of Root: 1 Wine . You can read more about my review of the Cabernet I purchased here. Needless to say, I loved my Carmenere candle! It burned nicely and the smell was intoxicating. I placed it in a main hallway and the aroma filled our home.
Rewined is a pretty cool company with a great story. The company was established about 5 years ago when a guy in a restaurant watched so many wine bottles get discarded and had an idea. He wanted to repurpose those bottles into candles with scents that mimicked the tasting notes of wine! Adam Festch, a.k.a. "boss man", is the one who came up with this brilliant idea. The word of these candles began to spread and now there is an entire team of candle makers based in Charleston, SC.
Each of the candles is carefully hand crafted starting with cutting every bottle by hand and then filling them with a premium natural soy wax fragranced to give the aromas similar to what you would find in your favorite wines.
Earlier this spring, I was pretty excited to hear about Rewined's Mimosa candle, one of the four seasonal candles they offer every year. Once again, I have this strategically placed in the middle of my home. The fresh scent of freshly squeezed oranges coupled with their champagne effervescence is so light and perfect for the season.
