Rewined’s sommelier collection features four candles developed in collaboration with wine experts inspired by the fragrance notes of their favorite pours.

Ignite the Senses
Rewined has uncorked a limited edition series of candles crafted alongside four sommeliers, who lent their noses to the scents. Bethany Heinze of Vern’s is behind a candle inspired by orange wine, with notes of blood orange, dried apricot, chamomile, and other aromatic herbs. Matthew Conway of The Tippling House developed a syrah candle with hints of plum, blackberry, peppercorn, and oakwood. Other candles in the series represent gamay and nebbiolo. Rewined candles have been handmade in Charleston since 2009, when founder Adam Fetsch had the idea to to use recycled wine bottles as vessels for candles. []
