Interview of Johnny Hugel

Uncle Johnny remains a most valuable source of advice with his 59 vintages' long experience

You can consult the figures of our own maturity controls with the last measurements carried out in certain plots of our estate vineyards on September 5. The evolution is very positive and shows the potential of some excellent results for the harvest itself which will in certain plots only take place in about 4 weeks.

Picked on Jancis Robinson's website:
‘Among the myriad wine blogs, this one - in several languages - is really worth looking at for an insider's view of the harvest. Just the right amount of detail, well written, and with links to even more detail such as a table showing the changing sugar and acidity levels in the grapes. And if tables aren't your thing, there are pictures and a fascinating video interview with Johnny Hugel, who has seen 59 vintages in Alsace.’

Mikael Dalsgaard:

Great interview with "Uncle Johnny" interresting to know that a summer
which widely has been thougt of as less than sunny, can actually produce,
high quality grapes. The video also gives a fascinating insight into the
work going on in the field, please keep up the good work, and post more
videos, if you have the time.
