Our upcycled wine bottle candles were featured in Sunset Magazine's article, Candles that Smell Like the Holidays!


Wine Bottle Candle with Pumpkins

Bringing a bottle of wine to Thanksgiving dinner is a time-honored hostess gift for the holidays, but why not switch it up a little this holiday season and bring a gift that will last well beyond Thanksgiving dinner?


Our upcycled wine bottle candle is a Thanksgiving gift that will wow - each bottle is hand-cut in San Jose, California; it is then filled with one of our handpoured soy candles in your choice of scent! For the perfect finishing touch, the wine candle is wrapped in twine and decorated with a wine cork.


Each of these large soy candles will burn for 80+ hours, so your friends and family can enjoy it throughout the holiday season.
