The name and crest of our winery have a German background and relate to the place were the first ancestors of the FUNCKE family originally come from.
According to different studies, the family crest relates to a family of smiths. We can therefore find stars – sparks which relate to this profession, representing also a family of will and perseverance.
Another interpretation of those stars relates to Orion’s constellation – the hunter of the sky.
Last but not least, many writers relate the colors of the crests to different precious stones. The Funcke family crest is characterized by its blue color, therefore associated with the sapphire stone which symbolizes fidelity, persistence, fame, honor and sincerity.
