Glenn Hugo was appointed Winemaker for Sonoma Valley’s B.R. Cohn Winery in April of 2018. Glenn’s background in the restaurant industry informs his approach to
winemaking and wine as part of the culinary experience. A native Texan, Glenn developed his passion for wine in the restaurant industry before moving with his wife to
Napa Valley in 2003 to pursue a dream of becoming a winemaker. Glenn’s formative winemaking experience was in Napa Valley and includes early assignments with
Provenance Vineyards, where he learned from Napa legend Tom Rinaldi. As General Manager of Bounty Hunter Wine Bar in downtown Napa, Glenn met renowned
winemaker Marco DiGiulio who launched Glenn on his winemaking career at Girard Winery Napa Valley.
Glenn has garnered numerous awards, accolades and 90+ point scores for the Girard portfolio and is looking forward to continuing the high-scoring tradition at B.R. Cohn
Winery. His winemaking philosophy is simple: wine is to be shared with friends, family and great food; it is a living and breathing expression that constantly evolves and
instills memories. He describes himself as down-to-earth and one of the least pretentious winemakers you’ll encounter
