  • the story

Red, White, and Bubbly All Over

Even if Sunday brunch is a whole week away, you can still start your day with a refreshing splash of bubbly. Stock these at-home bars in your shower or tub and drink in the surprising skin soothing benefits wine-inspired soap.

To craft these all-natural vegan and gluten-free soaps, Heather Swanepoel blends notes from popular red and white wine varieties with complementary scents and oils—such as citrus for "chardonnay" and berries, plums, and apples for "pinot noir"—resulting in a series of sublimely scented soaps that bear the distinctive shades and subtle fragrances of the vinos that inspired them. Redolent with the rich, layered notes one would expect from any full-bodied bottle, this effervescent collection is just the thing to turn your day-to-day wake-up routine into happy hour. Handmade in Monroe, Georgia.

Heather Swanepoel

Heather Swanepoel

Heather Swanepoel was in desperate need of a creative outlet?a hobby. It all started in 2002 when she couldn't knit. She tried to teach herself but, in the end, couldn't really knit anything other than squares and rectangles. Heather then transferred her creative energy to soap making by taking a class with her crafty mom. Once their concoctions were uncovered, Heather's soap was perfect and, ironically enough, her mom's soap did not turn out. Since then, Heather and her husband have created a soap-making family business located in Monroe, Georgia where all of their products are produced in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. collection

              My friend is a wine aficionado and prefers bar soap to the point that he travels with it so he doesn't have to use liquid soap. This was perfect for him, and he was very pleased with it.

                My wine loving friend was so excited when she opened her gift of 4 wine scented soaps. In fact, we all were. We passed them around and all took a big sniff. We wanted to drink them! She is going to enjoy her winy soaps...

                  I gave these as gifts to my step-daughter and daughter in law for Christmas, they loved the smell. This is a great gift, a little more sophisticated than most soap sets. Especially great for a wine-lover. I am now ordering another set as a gift for my former boss.

                              This was a gift for a friend's birthday so I can't tell you how the soaps were in use but I can tell you that they smelled absolutely wonderful! When she opened the present around our group of friends, everyone was very impressed and loved the gift. Another friend actually had me tell her where I bought them from so she could get them for herself. They could come in a little more attractive packaging...maybe a clear box top so you can see the beautiful soaps.

                              These beautifully scented soaps give going to the bar a new meaning! Would you love to lather-up with chardonnay or merlot? What other wine varieties would you like to see in soap form?

                              Don't worry, the soap doesn't actually smell like alcohol. It does smell like all of the other good stuff wine is made of, though. Most of the soaps smell fruity. For example, the cabernet has notes of grape.

                              P.s. We just double-checked to make sure the soaps are alcohol free, and we did receive confirmation from the maker that they don't contain any alcohol. We'll update our product story with this information.

                              YES YES YES!! Bar soap is so much better for the environment than, and homemade offers the richest lather. These would make great hostess gifts

                              If people would read the entire product story, they'd see that these luxe sounding soaps DO NOT SMELL LIKE WINE. They are colored in shades that resemble those of each wine, and they are scented with layers of fruit that seem to be associated with the color of each soap "flavor." White wines are citrusy, while red wines are scented with berries, plums, and apples. These actually sound delightfully rich and moisturizing. I am not a drinker of wine, but I would consider purchasing these as a luxurious bath product. I think wine lovers would find these to be divine.

                              Handmade in the USA and full of great indgredients like shea butter - what's not to love?!

                              We've actually used these from this company before and they do not smell like booze, their more floral and warm but very light. They don't really leave a smell behind, I'm a guy and I've used them a lot. They're not drying at all and they last a good while.

                              Nice. I sell bubbles made with California champagne and it smells and feels amazing. I'm sure these will be similar. Although this means less wine to drink!

                              Looks very dry. People that use soap on their bodies have a favorate soap if they are old enough. It might be ok for a 16 y.o.

                              I love that these are made in the USA! I really enjoy handmade soaps. I would be interested to know if the wine adds any good properties to the soap, or if it is just for color/scent/gimmick.

                              The oils in it sound nice but I would never buy it because I dont like the feel of most soaps. They feel dry icky. I usually use a body wash. The only way I would ever buy it is if I was given a sample and then decided that I liked it after using it.

                              I think that these soaps would be great! Contrary to what others have said, I don't think you would smell like wine after using the soap. People might be able to smell a hint of fruit coming from you. But, I don't think that people would be able to pick up on a strong wine scent. I would buy these, use them, and buy them also as gifts!

                              If you read the product story, it states that these are just the colors (shades) of the wines, and not their scents...so you won't smell like wine...you will smell like the complimentary scents that were added.

                              For those of you worried like smelling like wine, Leinenkugel's makes bar soaps based on their beer varieties. You don't smell like you've been drinking beer. It's a fresh smell based on the flavors in the beer.
