Hugel et Fils

The winery and trading house in French Alsace has been family-owned since 1639 and was already famous for its wines in the 18th and 19th centuries. In 1902, Frédéric Emile Hugel founded the current headquarters in Riquewihr, whereby the building was bought by the ore competitor Trimbach. Today the family business is managed by Jean-Philippe and Etienne Hugel, Marc Hugel is cellarmaster. The vineyards cover 25 hectares, about half of which are in the Grands Crus Schoenenbourg and Sporen. However, Hugel does not use AC Alsace Grand Cru (the site names do not appear on the label), but markets the wines under AC Alsace. The vineyards are mostly planted with Riesling and Gewürztraminer (40% each), as well as Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Natural viticulture is practised.
