Discover Riesling Wines
Riesling is known for being one of the most fragrant white wine grape types found across the globe. When made as a single-varietal, late-ripening wine, it is at its most expressive. Given Riesling's capacity to effectively convey Terroir, many of the best producers choose to add the name of the specific vineyard from where the wine was produced.
Historically, notable Riesling wine locations and producers have produced a varietal wine that represents the region's climate and terroir. Wines with luscious green, tree fruit aromas supported by apple blossom and lime will be produced by premium cooler-climate winemakers producing off-dry or dry Riesling. Riesling from premium moderate-climate growers has more stone-fruit forward notes (think white peach) with hints of banana, mango, melon, and even pineapple tastes.
Germany, Austria, France, and Canada are among of the most well-known premium Riesling-producing nations. However, the Riesling grape variety has its origins in Germany, particularly in the Rhine area, as the name implies. Riesling was first mentioned in the mid-1400s, and only a few decades later, proof of its existence was discovered in Alsace, France, where some of the best Riesling is being produced today.
About the Producer: Famille Hugel
Famille Hugel, also known as Hugel & Fils, is a winery and ongocyante located in Riquewier, Alsace. The family winery has been producing wines for almost 400 years. It is known for wines made from six noble Alsatian grape varieties - Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner and Muscat, as well as Pinot Noir. Hugel & Fils' portfolio is broad, with several different ranges to suit a range of prices. The Classic range includes varietal wines based on all the classic Alsatian varieties. The estate's assortment includes varietal wines made from Riesling and Gewürztraminer, grown exclusively on clayey loam soils around Rikwier. The next level is the Jubilee and Tradition ranges, culminating in the Schoelhammer Riesling, built on a small plot in the heart of the Grand Cru vineyard in Schönenburg. The property was founded by Frederic Hugel in 1902. Phylloxera lice in Alsace in the late 19th century, Hugel began replanting vines and bottling the resulting wines under his own name. Today the family owns about 75 acres (30 hectares) of vineyards, about half of which are in the Grand Cru vineyards.
