Constant attention to detail

Allowing the soil and the grapes to express their character

The quality of our wines and Crémants d'Alsace is testament to the hard work of our winemakers and employees, whose inimitable know-how keeps the old traditions alive without ever getting stuck in the past.

    At Bestheim, we have chosen to reconcile tradition and modernity, with a policy of regular investment. Investing in cutting-edge technology allows us to guarantee the flawless quality of our grapes, musts, wines and sparkling wines. Years of investments and improvements have allowed us to achieve total control over every stage in the winemaking process, from harvesting to vinification, filtering, maturing and even packaging.

    Double-annealed stainless steel vats for optimised cleaning, sunken buildings with automatic temperature regulation, maximal use of daylight, waste water pre-treatment station, solar panels, optimised flow management, waste recycling: we leave no stone unturned in our quest to deliver the finest wines and Crémants d'Alsace.

    Seeking excellence for your satisfaction

    Quality, safety, sustainable development and ethical winemaking are fundamental priorities for our business. United by the same attention to detail, professionalism, rigour and passion, our winemakers and support teams work hand-in-hand to bring you the very best the Earth has to offer.

    This ultra-modern facility allows us, of course, to craft wines of impeccable quality. But beyond technical innovation, it represents an ethos that Bestheim is committed to: allowing the grape and the terroir to express their character in its wines.

    For at the end of the day, what is a good Alsace wine if it is not a typical wine, true to the soil it grew from? Its aromas should express the exuberance of the landscapes in which our villages nestle. The sensations it leaves on the palate should reflect the authenticity, the harmony and the joie de vivre of this corner of France that is cherished by our perfectionist winegrowers…

    Prioritising fruit and finesse – while respecting the characteristics of each variety and each terroir – is the challenge that the Moon Chasers rise to so admirably. Constant self-discipline is the key to this. Strict rules are applied to ensure that grapes are harvested only when they are perfectly mature, and any that are sub-standard are ruthlessly eliminated. Since quality comes at this price, Bestheim’s winegrowers accept these constraints and have made them a watchword.

    This is their way of moving forward. Of combining perfection with their daily work. As you now know, the Moon Chasers love gambling on the future.
