Our initiatives for environmental protection and sustainable development
Our members, with the support of our winemaking experts, take a variety of measures to protect biodiversity: vineyards must be grassed over in every other row, treatments to prevent grass germination are banned on all of our Grand Cru estates...
Preventing pollution is a priority for our member winegrowers out in the field, as well as all of the staff working at the winery: developing organic practices and biological control; technical support and expert advice for members; sorting, recycling and reuse of waste at all of our facilities etc.
Sustainable use of resources
Bestheim has already implemented a raft of measures aimed at preserving our natural resources: solar panels for electricity production; wooden external frames for our buildings, allowing for better insulation and thus reducing energy consumption; use of technologies and materials which allow us to reduce water consumption, etc.
We are totally committed to protecting our consumers and ensuring the traceability of our products. For more than a decade our production sites have been IFS Food certified (International Food Standard), an international quality standard for food products.
Satisfying our consumers and customers. That starts with the warm welcome and personalised service you'll receive from the sales assistants in all of our stores. We are always keen to hear what our customers have to say about our products.
The health and safety of our members and employees
In order to protect the environment and look after everybody's health, we work with the major winemaking standards organisations to introduce alternative techniques which allow us to reduce our use of insecticides and other chemical products, substantially reducing the IFT (Treatment Frequency Index). We also call upon the services of an ergonomics expert in order to ensure that our employees are correctly and comfortably positioned at their work stations.
The working conditions of our members and employees
We place great importance on the quality of life at Bestheim. Our promise to our members and employees is that we will do everything in our power to ensure that we all work together in the best possible conditions, creating a peaceful and fulfilling professional environment.
