He has written for a variety of publications (including The Scotsman, The Australian, Scotland on Sunday, The Reader’s Digest, The Spectator, Financial News and Decanter) and broadcast for a variety of outlets, including the BBC, Reuters and WSJ.com.

Will is an increasingly familiar face in his capacity as a wine expert. He has compèred Channel 4’s Taste Festivals, appeared at the Edinburgh Festival as well as presented wine events for The Wall Street Journal and The Times in Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo and Vienna. 

Known for his discerning palate and accurate predictions, Will is also an accomplished blind wine taster and has lectured on the art of wine appreciation at Oxford University, Edinburgh University, Bradfield, Eton, and Rugby schools.
