candle + wine

October 8, 2012

After graduating from Purdue with a degree in restaurant management, Adam Fetsch decided to move South and flee the Midwestern winters.

In Charleston, Fetsch worked in a restaurant known for its mimosas, a cocktail made with champagne and orange juice.

After seeing the R. Roget champagne bottles tossed day after day, he had an idea for the green glass.

Fetsch bought a glass-cutting tool on Craigslist and brought some of the bottles home to experiment with making drinking glasses. The bottles did not work for glasses, but they were ideal as containers for candles.

With his passion for wine and food, the candle concept seemed right. In 2008, Rewined Candles took off.

Rewined collects used bottles, donated by restaurants, cleans them, inserts the cotton wicks and hand pours the 100 percent soy wax.

Sauvignon Blanc is Fetsch’s favorite, but there are other fragrances inspired by wine varietals, including Cabernet, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

New for fall is the Spiked Cider. The 11-ounce candles are $28 at www.rewinedcandles.com
