Bestheim was created as a cooperative resulting from merger of 5 Alsace wineries. Today the cooperative has 428 families making a range of wines including highly awarded Cremants and still wines.
Bestheim makes Grand Cru wines from 4 of Alsace´s Grand Cru vineyards (Mambourg, Schlossberg, Zinnkoepflé, and Kaeffekopf). In total there are 51 individual terroirs specified as Grand Cru sites in Alsace, representing approx. 5% of the total production of wines in the region.
Grand Cru sites have the best exposure on mainly south-facing slopes usually 200 – 400 metres above sea level, with a range of soils that give individual expression to the grapes grown there.
