Producer's description

The first traces of the Hugel family in Alsace can be traced back to the 15th century. Two centuries later, Hans-Ulrich Hügel settled in Riquewihr, which was devastated by the terrible Thirty Years' War. In 1639 he became an honorary citizen of the city and soon headed a very powerful corporation of winegrowers. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the Hugel family had an enviable reputation for their winemaking skills and vineyard cultivation.

Until the early 17th century, Alsace was the largest and most famous wine region in the Holy Roman Empire. The Thirty Years' War, the French Revolution, the Napoleonic and Franco-Prussian Wars brought winemaking in the Alsace region into decline. By the beginning of the twentieth century, destruction caused by insect pests and spore diseases brought the situation to a critical point.
After 1918, several visionary and courageous winemakers, including Frédéric Emile Hugel , took action to preserve the vineyards of Alsace. Frederic Emil Hugel devoted his entire life to promoting high-quality wines from noble grape varieties. His son Jean, with his persistence and hard work, proved that Alsace wines deserve a place among the best wines in the world. The following generations conscientiously carry out the main task inherited from their ancestors - to make the wines of Alsace the great white wines of the 21st century.
