We had a great time at the unwind and uncork event. Two suggestions. Send out a reminder a week in advance about food that can be purchased. We came there hungry. Also bring wine there so we can buy it that night.
I had so much fun with my friends making amazing smelling candles and trying some delicious wines. The team at Sanibel Candle Company is so nice and inviting and we had a great time.
I loved the idea of this combo class and bought 2 tickets. The wines were lovely and the candle is nice. I thought the charcuterie boards were included. I came in before class to ask if there was going to be served. I was told yes. I thought the price was too high without something to eat. Maybe put out cheese and crackers or some sort of snack when serving alcohol. I wish you great success.
First let me say that I love my candle and the owner's wife was an absolute gem to work with with!! Candle retails for around $35... event including wine tasting was $60. Normally, I would expect a 4oz pour in a nice stemware. This was about a 2oz pour in an odd small glass. There was no water served, which was tough on a wine tasting. There was also no food given at the event, which was fine, but the only option was to buy a pre-made charcuterie box that was $26 and had one type of meat in it. Worst yet, the one type of meat was VERY spicy... and again.. no water is provided. None the less, the candle was amazing, and I purchased $65 more in candles, and my friends bought some as well. I was slightly taken aback when the owner made an announcement asking for tips for their employees. After spending $60 on the event, $65 more in pre-made take home candles, and $26 on a charcuterie box that could barely be eaten... I did not feel like I needed to tip his hourly employees. The worst part was that he called out one of his employees to the crowd and called her a "tip monger". She was clearly mortified. I'm not sure if he made this comments because he had a few glasses of wine or if he's normally that harsh. The next day, I went to pick up our 5 candles, and called and asked that since the parking lot is being resurfaced and I needed to park further away, if it would be possible for someone to meet me at the driveway with the candles to help me load them into my car. While on the phone, I could hear the owner in the background come up with every reason why NOT to help me, leaving the poor girl on the phone to stammer. While I truly enjoy my candle, I would probably not attend a class again. For the cost, i would just go in and make my candle.
