Faithful to family tradition since 1760, the Hugg family has spread its reputation for fine wines to the four corners of the earth. The family is proudly devoted to the art of producing fine wines and takes pleasure in passing on the fruits of their knowledge of Alsace wines to wine and food lovers around the world. This generation now includes Françoise, who has added her experiences living in Monterey, California and is married to an American. Based in Bergheim, Marcel Hugg’s vineyards cover more than 25 hectares of vines in a region especially favored by nature. This includes owning vines in one of the most renown Grand Crus of Alsace-the Grand Cru Altenberg de Bergheim.
