Alsace to Asia, Hugel & Fils Wine Dinner 17/07/2014

Farsons Beverage Imports is organising a special wine-tasting dinner with the internationally renowned wines of Hugel et Fils at the TemptAsian Restaurant at The Palace Hotel. The night will be hosted by Alsace and Hugel wine expert, David Ling.

The Hugel family has been producing wine since 1639. They are pioneers in wine making in Alsace, having even written some of the wine producing laws for the region. The late Johnny Hugel was described by wine expert Tom Stevenson as "the single most important person in the development of Alsace wine industry throughout the 20th century." Alsace wines are mainly white, and are produced using the noble varieties of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Muscat.

Today the business is run by the 12th generation of the family - and will be shortly joined by the 13th. Despite the winery‚Äôs modest size, Hugel wines enjoy a worldwide reputation. They are present in practically every great restaurant in France, and almost 80% of "Hugel" wines are exported, to more than 100 countries. The Hugel family was elected by its peers to membership of the "PRIMUM FAMILIAE VINI", an association of 12 family wine companies in the major wine producing regions of the world.

The dinner will be held on Wednesday 23rd July at 8:30 at the TemptAsian Restaurant at The Palace Hotel in Sliema. For reservations: 21333444
