Candles and Wine Opens in Bedford Hills: Grand opening June 13, at 6 p.m

Candles and Wine

Candles and Wine, a wine and beer bar located at 25-27 Depot Plaza in Bedford Hills, will hold its grand opening June 13, at 6 p.m. The latest creation of Marcie Manfredonia, owner of Custom Candle Co, Candles and Wine is a place where people can relax and socialize, she says. ”I feel this will be good for the community. A lot of people come in to my store and want to have a place where they can sit down and talk.”

The bar will share space with Custom Candle, which sells nontoxic, eco-friendly candles and personal products. The open-concept design lends itself to a variety of gatherings, Manfredonia says. “We’ll be hosting weekly events like painting classes, jazz nights with local artists, and presentations by wine connoisseurs.” Local and organic wines will be served, as well as finger foods. “We’re not cooking, so it will be foods like hummus and celery and cheese platters, and brunch on Sundays with croissants and coffee, tea and mimosas,” she says.

Manfredonia also plans to host lotion parties. “With all the natural, nontoxic lotions and creams and the candles that I make, I really want to educate people, so I’ll be doing a lot of classes. When you make your own lotions and creams, you know what’s in it. I’ll show how to break down the creams and lotions and what’s added, like essential oils. So that’s really why I put the wine bar in. It’s place to socialize, drink and learn.”
