Jean F. Hugel is in the Studio…

Posted on Updated on

Wineguys Radio Sept 10 2011 on Clear Channel AM760  We had the pleasure of having a member of the Hugel Family in studio this past weekend… 13th generation member, Jean Frederic Hugel. Arguably one of the best wineries in the world… yes we said it!!!  “One of the Best.”

Winegrowing ancestors since 1639: The first traces of the Hugel family in Alsace can be traced back to the 15th century. Some two centuries later, Hans Ulrich Hugel settled in Riquewihr, which had been devastated by the terrible Thirty Years War. In 1639 he was made a freeman of the city and soon took charge of the very powerful Corporation of Winegrowers. In 1672 his son built a fine house in the Rue des Cordiers, and over the doorway was carved the family crest which was the origin of the company’s logo still used today.
