Summer Dinner and Wine Pairing


Enjoying simple (but delicious!), casual dinners that linger well after the sun sets is one of our favorite summer pastimes. Plus, who can resist the colorful bounty of vegetables at the farmer’s markets this time of year?! Not us! This easy dish was quick to make, full of fresh veggies and left us satisfied while not being too heavy. It is highly recommended to grab a glass of white wine to sip while you cook. It’s guaranteed to make the meal even better!

Wine pairing:
A refreshing white is the perfect accompaniment for this tasty meal. To round out the veggies and flavorful ravioli, we chose a slightly oaky and buttery Chardonnay with floral notes.

- ½ cup red peppers, chopped
- ½ cup white onion, chopped
- 2 cups fresh corn, off the cob
- ½ cup light cream
- 1½ tablespoons sage brown butter (may substitute with plain butter)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3-4 sprigs fresh basil
- Rio Bertolini’s sweet potato gorgonzola walnut ravioli (or another fresh ravioli of your choice)

- Bring water to a boil, add ravioli. Allow to boil until raviolis float to top. Strain and set aside.
- Saute butter, corn, red peppers, onions and S&P in a small sauce pan.
- Once veggies begin to soften, add cream.
- Bring veggies and cream to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until ingredients thicken.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour veggie mixture over ravioli arranged on a dinner plate.
- Garnish with fresh basil
- Grab a friend (or a few) and enjoy outside as you toast to a delicious meal and another great summer day!

#rewinedshowoffs winner


After two weeks of ohhing and ahhing over all of the wonderful candle display photos shared with us during the #rewinedshowoffs display contest, our friends at Stitch Design Co. have chosen a winner! The lovely ladies of Stitch have long been a creative partner for Rewined and  have helped us with many projects, among which are the label concept for our candles and the Rewined style guide!

Without further ado, we would like to send our congratulations to the first place winner; trohv! Whew, the competition was intense and it was so hard to choose just one winner! The two runners up are Homestead Glitter to Rust and Haystack Kirkland!

We really loved elements from each and every display we saw! The creativity of our retail family is truly endless. Let’s just say it was a kick in the pants for the candle crew! We’re (trying) to set down our wine glasses and spruce up our own displays!

To view all of the display goodness, head on over to our Pinterest board where we’ve gathered all the photos shared by our retailers as part of our #rewinedshowoffs display contest! Even though the contest is over, please keep your photos coming! Seeing Rewined candles in your stores, on display, truly makes our day!
