It would be difficult to find a more ideal geographical situation for Beblenheim: the village nestles in the heart of Alsace, only a few miles from Riquewihr and Zellenberg. The charm and atmosphere typical of the region, so well portrayed by Hansi, the famous Alsatian artist, are to be found everywhere: timber-framed houses, stone gateways with coats-of-arms, a beautiful fifteenth-century gothic fountain. But without any doubt, Beblenheim exists first and foremost for wine. The village's winery is the focal point for 620 acres of vines across five rural districts. In this small, very Alsatian village, jealously-guarded winegrowers' secrets have been handed down from father to son for generations.
