The Hugel family are implementing the major principles they inherited from their ancestors and are driven to make Hugel and Alsace wine the great white wine of the 21st century. Hugel wines have become very popular with Irish consumers and wine lovers worldwide. They are the most flexible of wines in terms of food pairings: cheese, fish, lamb, Indian, Asian, fusion and more traditional foods are all enhanced by these wonderful wines. They represent great value for money, particularly Hugel Gentil. Hugel Gentil is the only Hugel wine that is a blend of several varieties and the perfect introduction to Alsace wines. This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines assembled from noble grape varieties were called ‘Gentil’. Gentil ‘Hugel’ allies the suave, spicy flavour of Gewurztraminer, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the grapiness of Muscat and the refreshing character of Sylvaner.
