Special Edition Wines

An exquisite choice

Lufthansa Seeheim presents two special edition wines every year that are more than just “a good house wine”. This year, our tradition of epicurean highlights continues with our new Edition Nr. 12.

The Selection
Process

“Only the best for our guests” is the first principle of the team that takes part in the tasting. The perfect wine must be selected from a variety of red and white wines: It should be an ideal accompaniment for different types of occasions, crafted using traditional methods, in line with current trends, and excellent value for money.

The wines are selected for their appeal and distinctive character: uncontrived, creative, yet still in touch with their heritage. Only the highest quality and expertise, with an added dash of nonchalance, result in the sensitivity for wine that is reflected our wine editions.

The team is led by the head of food service and catering as well as by a certified wine specialist. Both provide expert guidance throughout the tasting and introduce potential wines to the two chief executives as well as to their colleagues from banquet services, purchasing, and the sales department. They provide extensive information, which is researched meticulously in advance.

After analysing and rating the appearance, smell, and taste of the wines, the whole team reaches an overall rating and selects the two wines for the coming year’s edition.
