In 1639 the Hugel family settled in the picturesque little town of Riquewihr in Alsace, where they have remained ever since. Today Famille Hugel retains the character of a true family wine business & is currently managed by the 12th & 13th generations of the family.nFamille Hugel owns an estate of 30 hectares of prime sites around the historic & picturesque town of Riquewihr in the heart of Alsace, where vineyards have been cultivated for more than 2,000 years. More than half of these vineyards are classified as Grand Cru: the Schoenenbourg, known for its Riesling, & the Sporen for its Gewurztraminer. It also buys grapes from a further 100 hectares farmed by partner growers who have the same clay & limestone dominated terroirs that help to define the unique character & style of Famille Hugel wines. All grapes are, & always have been, picked by hand. The Hugel estates are exclusively planted with the noble Alsace grape varieties & the vines have an average age of 35 years. Famille Hugel production averages 100,000 cases per year, of which around 90% is exported to more than 100 countries worldwide, where the name ‘Alsace’ has become synonymous with Hugel wines.
