Location of Domaine Hugel et Fils

The Hugel family estate owns 29.5 hectares of vines. These are planted on a mosaic of different terroirs around the native village of Riquewihr. Knowing the specificity of each one allows the Hugel sons to reveal each grape variety. With the help of Claude Bourguignon, France's leading expert on agricultural soils, Marc Hugel has learned to recognize each pebble on his estate.

It's this finely-tuned appreciation that has led the family estate to emphasize late harvesting and the selection of noble grapes in certain parcels.
