Hugel wine served at NATO summit in Strasbourg

Barak_SXB.jpg

If there was one good news about the benefit for Alsace of the recent NATO summit in Strasbourg, it is that Americans will at last know that Strasbourg is in... France. We were of course delighted when we heard that one of our wines, our Pinot Gris Tradition 2005 had been chosen for the Friday night gala dinner prepared by Strasbourg's most celebrated chef Emile Jung of Crocodile restaurant

As husbands and wives did not dine at the same table that night nor did they have the same beverage selection (oh... la la !) until the following day we were not sure if our wine had been served to Barack and Nicolas or at Michelle and Carla's party. Knowing the popularity and personality of the first ladies, we are pleased to report that our wine was enjoyed at Michelle and Carla's dinner and from what we heard through the grapevine, they had lots of fun ;-) Thank you Emile for your nice words in the menu you sent us. Perhaps our French President should take lessons on that from his Italian born wife !

Having heard the news on the occasion of a visit to Japan, walking in front of a local hotel doing a promotion for US beef with the poster of President Obama, I could not resist taking this picture... Yes, we can !

Way to go Etienne! I didn't know how close you were to the Obamas until I saw your photo! Ha!

Congrats... from the Little Alsace in Ohio...

Lucky Michele, Carla and Barack - and bad luck on the abstemious President! As Seppi Landmann observed to me recently, 'l'abus de la modération est dangéreux pour la santé'. Now I can't wait to get to my own PG Tradition 2005 - thanks for safe delivery, not to mention the PN des Neveux and the Riesling...

Etienne and Co.
WOW! This is sensational and terrific news. The Sarkozy's and Obama's could not have made a better choice than "HUGEL". Let's build a hugel bottle of HUGEL Riesling in New York Harbor right next to that other great Alsace monument, the Statue of Liberty!!!
