Ep. 1124 Angus Hughson PhD | Uncorked

Welcome to episode 1124, in which host Polly Hammond interviews Angus Hughson, this week on Uncorked.
This week we are coming to you live from the Wine Industry Impact Conference in a very rainy Bendigo, Australia. My guest is the clever and witty Angus Hughson, a fella who wears many hats in wine including writer, critic, publisher, and digital media specialist. Today, we dive into the challenges facing Australian wine, what it’s going to take to excel, and what we need to know about the future wine consumer. Let’s get into it!
