A wine degustation event organised by the sommelier Rasťo Šuták and Executive chef Björn Juhnke that will introduce your palate to the flavours of historical Alsace.
Hugel winery values, above all else, family tradition. The winery has been a family-owned business since 1639 and is now run by five family members from the 11th and 12th generations. The family members interact with the winemakers on a daily basis and make sure the means of production are specific to Hugel, such as picking all grapes by hand, and done in a timely and organised manner.
Since the Middle Ages, this winery has been known for its aromatic wines. The Hugel winery only plants noble grape varieties (40% Gewurztraminer, 40% Riesling, 15% Tokay Pinot Gris, 5% Pinot Noir) but also carries out long-term contracts with trusted grape growers. In modern times this winery has become popular all around the world, exporting 80% of their production to over 100 countries.
A significant aspect of the Hugel winery is their cellars. All cellars are placed in well-preserved 16th century buildings, updated with modern systems for vinification. These cellars are a tribute and symbol of the value of tradition and history. One of the Hugel cellars is featured in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest functioning cellar still used for wine production since 1715.
Do not miss this unique opportunity to taste these wines, selected by sommelier Rasťo Šuťák. Experience five-star dining at Kempinski Hotel River Park in the company of friends or business partners.
