‘Shine On’ Scented Candles by Divino
We created two scented candles as a fun way to add warmth and light to any space, while also training your nose to recognize some of the common aromas in barrel-aged red and white wines like ‘baking spice’ ‘toasted oak,’ and vanilla.
Candles are hand-poured from 100% non-toxic soy wax. No lead, plastics, parabens synthetic dyes, or phthalates. Average burn time 50-60 hours.
About the Scents

‘Barricato Red’ is more specific to red wines, and includes brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, vanilla, praline, and sweet cedar. $20 + shipping.
‘Shine On’ Candles in Support of Community Word Project
A long-time supporter of Community Word Project, Annie is a proud product of public schools and a vibrant arts education, and believes in the importance of giving back. A small portion of candle sale will benefit the continuing efforts of CWP to train teaching artists, place them in public schools in underserved communities, and produce dynamic and inclusive collaborative arts events for students and educators.

Why Support Arts Education
Wine is a Language. Learn How to Speak it. Our mission at DiVino is to invite wine lovers, from the curious wine lover to the connoisseur, to join the conversation about wine and to feel more confident tasting it and enjoying in company. We encourage thought and conversation, and we use creative methods like music and video to communicate wine in accessible ways.
DiVino Founder, Annie B. Shapero credits her exceptional public school arts programs for instilling in her the confidence to build her own brand so that she could work with something she is passionate about (wine!) , and to be able to and communicate her vision with others. All children should have that opportunity to find their own voices and learn how to use them!
