Famille Hugel

Domaine Hugel, a history of Alsace and wine! Hugel is an Alsatian family since the 15th century, it is in 1639 that they settle in the commune of Riquewihr and that Ulrich takes the head of the powerful. This is the story of the Hugel family’s attachment to its region and its vineyards! After 1918, some winemakers including Frédéric Hugel decided to save the Alsatian vineyard, he devoted his entire life to produce and promote the great Alsatian wines of noble grape varieties. He was among those who proved that Alsace wines are among the greatest wines in the world. Hugel wines are the result of hard work, a mixture of ancestral techniques and advanced techniques. The cellars of the famous St. Catherine existing since 1715 are even classified in the Guinness of Records and innovation is well represented by the control of the fermentation temperature and the bottling robotized to improve the precision and the protective atmosphere of the wine . The vineyards of the house are planted with Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer, white and gray grape varieties typical of the region of Alsace wines. These vines enjoy this continental climate, they know how to resist the cold of winter and spring frosts. They are noble grape varieties, which make the peculiarity and the fruitiness of the great wines of Alsace. The Hugel house, despite its modest size enjoys a reputation that has been around the world, we can find its wines in the best French restaurants and more than 80% of the production is exported in a hundred countries! The wines of the Hugel house are magnificent, as is the place where they are produced. Located in the heart of the typical village of Riquewihr, the house Hugel is a jewel of Alsatian architecture, not to be missed if you have the chance to visit the region.
