Wick & Wine Candle Co.

Retail, Food & Beverage

We are a North Fork company nestled in the heart of Long Island's wine country. We combined our love for recycling and natural products with our vast Long Island wine culture to come up with an idea that can be enjoyed by anyone who loves candles and/or wine...which we believe, covers just about everybody! We source wine bottles from local wineries and restaurants and, through our own process, transform them into candle vessels that can be used again and again long after the wax is gone. With our repurposed wine bottle candle, you'll first enjoy the functionality of the bottle top, which coverts to a useable wine glass, as you sip your favorite grape by candle light. After the wax is gone, you simply wipe the vessel clean and both top and bottom pieces can be used as a sub-irrigated (self-watering) planter that you can use to grow (or transplant) herbs to keep in the kitchen for fresh ingredients when cooking meals. Consider this the ultimate gift whether its Christmas, Valentines Day, or even your wedding favors!

Four lucky start-ups will be selected to present at our RipTide finale event on November 10th.  So if you like this idea and think it should make the final, please add your comments and rating below.  The more positive comments a start-up gets, the more likely it will be picked to be a finalist.

To join us at the finale event on Nov 10th, please RSVP now. Limited seats available,.
