In yellow livery with Victoria friend in Vietnam


Above picture taken on January 26, 2010 in Saigon with friends Eric Simard and Dong Khoi...

The story is just too nice not to be told...

It all starts in late 2006 when former Auberge de l'Ill employee, Franco-Vietnamese Eric Simard contacts us from Vietnam asking if we were interested to start establishing distribution in his distant Indochina market. Eric now head of Victoria hotels obviously knows the various importers and recommends Franco-Vietnamese Dong Khoi of leading importer Tan Khoa.

No later than two months later, our wines were launched in Vietnam with both of our friend involved. The above center picture was taken in January 2007 with Eric on his yellow Lambretta whose colour is exactly that of our labels... In Vietnam most transports happen on two wheels, including sometimes deliveries as on above right photo with Tan Khoa's boss taken in January 2008 on second market visit. My reaction: Eric, it would be so nice if you, our Hugel ambassador had our logo added to your yellow Lambretta.

And here we go, above is Eric Simard's Lambretta reunion with his two wine friends driven by our "Vienamese ambassador". Needless to say that Hugel wines are to be found at Victoria hotels.

This World of wines is really a very special one, where friendship blends so nicely into our lives and memories. CHEERS and THANKS !

En tant qu'alsacien du Col de la Schlucht, vivant au Vietnam je ne peux que recommander
et approuver :la cuisine Vietnamienne associee au Vins d'Alsace est un plus.
A quand une visite a Hoi An d'Etienne Hugel.??

Merci Claude, on a vu Eric et Ronan à nos événements. Le Vietnam est vraiment à découvrir mais suis déja en route pour d'autres contrées... Indonésie et Japon

Love the personalised wheels, Etienne!
