Since the creation of the business in 1853, many great artists have added to the renown of Boeckel wines by designing the labels. Amongst these are :
Charles Spindler, a very talented painter and marquetery maker in Alsace, born in Boersch (around 10kms from Mittelbergheim); this label dates from around 1918, and an updated version was still in use up until the beginning of 2010. Spindler used his servant as a model when drawing the portrait of the Alsacienne.

This label, designed by Henry Loux, dates from 1904, and it was used until 1920, abandoned and then re-used in the 1990’s for the Sélection de Grains Nobles wines.
Henri Loux was Alsatian, a painter mostly known for his illustrations on the “Obernai” dinner service. He also painted many watercolours of country and village scenes.

Label designed in 1898 when Paul Schmitthenner was only 16 years old and not yet qualified as an architect. He was a school friend of the Boeckel brothers Frédéric and André.
