Hugo has excellent taste in wine, we went to many tastings together and he has kindly helped me with his advise and knowledge to always have interesting wines on our list. 

We share a similar enthusiasm for small domains who respects nature and are truthful to their terroirs. He is a patient and skilled educator and has helped me to train my staff. I have learned a great deal myself from him and I value his opinion about wines greatly. I would highly recommend Hugo as a teacher if you want to study wine with WSET at any level, he has the perfect mix of professionalism and fun in his teaching and training and his passion for wine is highly contagious!
