OUR VALUES, OUR WORLD Symbolism

Welcome to our world. The world of Grands Vins & Crémants d'Alsace, where man and nature work in harmony to craft wines for special moments, from festive occasions to moments of gastronomic exploration.

Our brand is encapsulated in a symbol, a stylised "B" comprising the solid, upright silhouette of a vineyard post - crisp, precise, proud, rooted in the soil but looking up at the stars - draped in a spiralling vine, representing the wild, savage nature which we strive constantly to master, relying on the sun's life-giving light to bring the grapes to perfect maturity.

Welcome to our world, imbued with a distinctive blue colour designed to evoke the calm majesty of a clear night bathed in moonlight. The world of the "mondfangers," driven by their audacious desire for freedom to take charge of their own destiny, creating a winemaking cooperative founded on shared values and convictions. The cooperative we know as Bestheim.

TECHNIQUES & INNOVATION Modernity in the name of tradition

Our winemakers draw upon a rich heritage of tradition and know-how, passed down from generation to generation with passion and pride. Our mission: to create new experiences and forge new connections. We protect this legacy with the help of modern, technologically-advanced tools for the sorting, vinification and bottling processes. Complete mastery of the vinification process is an Art which defines our Style. Oenological analyses conducted in our in-house laboratories allow us to use a bare minimum of winemaking additives, leaving the must and the wine to speak for themselves. Here at Bestheim, we are proud to use the latest in modern technology in the service of tradition and authenticity!

First and third places went to very famous Champagnes, and this fantastic performance did much to raise the profile of our brand and our appellation. Read the full article here!
