Huckebein the honour is all mine

Cordula Alessandri

Dutch Portuguese dynamo, Dirk van der Niepoort, had another of his amazing ideas: this time it was for a cuvée from the Douro valley, specially made for the German market bearing the German name “Fabelhaft” (fabulous). Alessandri developed a comic strip label featuring Hans Huckebein, the hapless raven from the classic Wilhelm Busch story of the same name. The cuvée was such a success in Germany that Dirk extended the concept to other countries.
