We started noticing ReWined candles around town a few years ago, but they seem to be everywhere these days, including lots of local stores and popular design blogs. That's due in part to Stitch Design Co.'s great label redesign. The candles, which are made from soy wax poured into recycled wine bottles, are wrapped in brown kraft paper letterpressed with simple type. Each candle has a hand-signed and dated label, a color-coded wax seal, and a wood veneer wax topper to keep it free of dust. The candles themselves come in nine different wine-inspired scents, from Cabernet (black cherry, currant, smoke, and burnt toast) to Pinot Grigio (sandalwood, light stone, and citrus). Now that they look as good as they smell, we imagine they'll just keep spreading nationwide.
