These include expert witness advice, business project development and implementation, cellar maturity evaluation and corporate wine presentations. He is a frequent contributor to wine journals in both the UK and abroad, most recently on the subject of wine investment. He became a Master of Wine in 1992, serving as Chairman of the Institute in 2002. Hugo is a regular Decanter taster and a member of the Bordeaux Judging Panel in the Decanter World Wine Awards.
