As specialists in vinocosmetics, we offer a beauty range whose active ingredients come from an exceptional region listed as a World Heritage Site. At the heart of the formulas, we find Pinot Noir, which is 5 times richer in polyphenols (antioxidants) than green tea, and Burgundy Blackcurrant buds.
Our desire to highlight the benefits of the vine through unique care products, involves a process of upcycling the grapes from our local partner estates.
We have thus developed processes that allow us to obtain the most concentrated extracts in active molecules, to design clean, effective formulas based on a reasoned choice of natural raw materials.
Our primary aim : to reconcile naturalness, effectiveness, sensory appeal and safety for the consumer and our planet !
A word from the founders
"Heritage”, behind this word we find all that makes up the strength of Vinésime: the climats of Burgundy, the vines, the Pinot Noir and the blackcurrant. The latter is a precious berry worked by my family and which gave birth to the Kir brand.
To create the A2OC complex used in our products, we fused blackcurrant and Pinot Noir! The active ingredients in our products come from local partners, such as the René Bouvier estate, a family-run business with 30 hectares of vineyards exclusively in the Côte-de-Nuits. Through Vinésime, we want to promote the French art de vivre (art of living) and pass on the history of the Burgundy region. This exceptional region shines through its prestigious wines, but now also through our cosmetic and nutricosmetic products).
"Authenticity" is the guiding principle that has driven Vinésime since its creation and continues to orient the brand today. We find this authenticity in the active ingredients that make up our products.
Our A2OC active ingredient (a combination of Pinot noir and blackcurrant) protects the skin from the damage it is subjected to on a daily basis and stimulates it. Our cosmetic treatments made with precious active ingredients (BEAUTY OUT) are combined with the ÉLIXIR DE LA VIGNE, a vintage nutricosmetic formula that meets the same requirements in terms of effectiveness (BEAUTY IN). We don't just apply creams; we apply positive intention: to mobilise inner energy in order to radiate beauty on the outside. In my opinion, every day that goes by where we are not improving our products is a day lost.
Plants have the special faculty to produce their own nutrients, proteins, carbohydrates and fats, which we use every day in the human diet.
Our skin, just like plants, is directly subjected to damage from the sun, air pollution, and the stress of our modern lives.
Vinésime strives to extract the beneficial molecules from the plants of the Burgundy region and pass them on through its cosmetic treatments.
The material harvested each year comes from the René Bouvier estate in Gevrey Chambertin. It is then sent to a plant extractor specialising in polyphenols, the extract of which is used in the composition of the Vinésime care ranges: “Le Clos” and “Racine du temps”, the latter benefiting from the Burgundy A2OC* complex.
Rich in antioxidants, grapes are a popular ingredient in cosmetics. Their skin, seeds and pulp take care of our beauty.
They provide the skin with essential elements for its balance. Their antioxidant properties help protect cells and tissues from oxidation. They also promote skin elasticity and help limit the effects of time on the skin.
Several varieties of grapes are used in our products :
Pinot noir : The most concentrated grape variety in the world in antioxidants* (polyphenols). Our exclusive extract, exclusive property of Vinésime, has 10 times the antioxidant strength of pure Green Tea extract, and comes from very old organic Gevrey-Chambertin vines from the René Bouvier Estate.

Chardonnay : Produced from the grape marc of the "Le Clos" vineyard located in Marsannay, Burgundy, it forms the heart of the Chardonnay body range.
Grenache noir : Coming from the Plateau du chateau de Berne parcel, an emblematic grape variety located at an altitude of 300m, the grape marc used is from the harvest of organically-grown vines.
Derived from gemmotherapy, this active ingredient makes up the A2OC complex along with Pinot Noir. Recent research has revealed up to 43 diﬀerent polyphenols including ﬂavonol glycosides and phenolic acids. All of these polyphenols have the ability to block the oxidative action of free radicals that can attack skin tissue, and thus participate in protecting the skin and limiting skin ageing.
It naturally contains antioxidants that help to strengthen resistance to stress and damaging environmental conditions.
