Based in Riquewihr since 1639, Hugel survived the 30 Years War, the French Revolution, Napoleonic Wars, the Franco-Prussian War, and two World Wars.
With its distinct yellow labelled bottles, it is one of the most recognised and respected wine families. Marc, Etienne and Jean-Frédéric are the twelfth and thirteenth generation of the family, and the Fells tasting in February provided a great opportunity to taste and discuss the wines in detail with Jean-Frédéric.
