Wine Intelligence awarded the Hugel scion (Etienne) from an impressive list of 30 for their awards for "10 wine industry figures who have made a significant contribution to the business of wine over the past decade - voted for by a panel of 10 leading figures from the global wine industry"
The report of the ceremony during Vinexpo Asia Pacific in Hong Kong here
The info is relayed on Meiningers WBI and the list of nominees is quite impressive: MW's Gérard Basset, Lynn Sherriff and Tim Atkin, but also Robert Parker, Miguel Torres, Ian Harris, Michel Rolland or Eduardo Chadwick... So why me ?
Anyway, my family and friends must be proud, a clear sign of ageing too but I am NOT the oldest in that list ;-)
