Join us to welcome Jean-Frederic Hugel, current generation of one of the most famous producers in Alsace – Hugel.

With their eye-catching yellow labels and classic style, it’s no wonder that ‘Alsace’ is often synonymous with ‘Hugel`.
The Hugel family have a history of winemaking dating back to 1639 and their surname is notably peppered throughout the history books of the region. Notably, Frédéric Emile Hugel was instrumental in the promotion of high-quality wines from noble grapes – something continued by his son Jean and then his three sons who are given credit for the official recognition of the late-harvest sweet wines of the region.
So, there could be nobody better to guide members through the wines of Alsace, chart their historic rise in quality and understanding over the past 100 years than the next generation, Jean-Frederic Hugel.
Jean-Frederic will show a range of the estate’s wines demonstrating the diversity of variety and terroir that the region is so famed for. Expect classic wines from varieties such as riesling, gewurztraminer, pinot gris and more from range of different sites. He will also explore the family’s history, the trials and tribulations of the region as well as dipping into some of his ideas for the future.
Tasting along with Jean-Frederic, we have no doubt that you will understand why this family, steeped in tradition but not shy from innovation, are considered pioneers of Alsace.
