It takes an estimated 1 million years for a glass bottle to decompose in the environment! Repurposing glass is far less energy intensive than the recycling process, so this is what Old Vine Candles do! Collecting old wine bottles, cutting and carefully sand the edges, before being cleaned and transformed into a beautiful fragranced candle for you.
Each bottle collected is unique, you may find each candle has slight variances due to its shape or colour, we just think this adds to the charm of your candle.
“So what does wine smell like in a candle?” The easiest way to answer this is the next time you pick up your favourite bottle have a look at its back label or are in a wineary, bar or restaurant, take a look at their wine lists. Read the descriptions, and then this is where the inspiration for our candle scents come from.
