Wine & Design: Candlemaking with Jack Be Nimble

November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Put a little sparkle in your holiday with Jack Be Nimble Candles! Join us as a part of Chateau Elan’s Wine and Design Series where our candle expert, Paul Bruschi, will teach you the intricacies of candle making, his theories on fragrance blending, caring for your candles, and the power of scent and light. You will then pour your very own Jack Be Nimble Fall Scent while enjoying Chateau Elan’s signature wine.

No prior experience needed, our instructor-led workshops will take you step-by-step through each activity and includes all the necessary items you’ll need to make each product. Chateau Elan Wine will be provided throughout the workshop. Cheese and charcuterie can be purchased upon arrival.

Project: Make an enchanting blend of fir needles, cranberry, and grapefruit. Get ready to sparkle and shine at all your holiday celebrations with this fragrance!
• Scent notes: grapefruit • cranberry • balsam fir
• 11 oz candle measures 3.5″ in diameter and 4.25″ in height
• 11 oz candle burns clean for 60-65 hours
• Comes in a matte white gift box!
Our containers are finished with a white matte treatment which can show fingerprints over time. This is very easy to remove with paper towel and a window cleaner.
What To Know: Check-in at Bordeaux Room on the second floor of the Winery, 15 minutes before the class. Each maker will be supplied with materials and Chateau Elan wine. You will walk away from each workshop with a product, perfect for gifting or keeping for yourself. Due to high temperatures of the candle wax and weather conditions, it may not be possible for attendees to take home their candle that evening. It is recommended that the candles be stored in a cool dry area for 24 hours before taking home. We suggest that arrangements be made for each attendee to pick up their candle at a later time (at the resort), should the wax not be set prior to
the end of the activity.
Rates: $65 plus tax
Dates: Bi-Weekly on Fridays
Time: 7:00PM – 9:00PM
