Berry Bros. & Rudd's examination courses are devised by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust and are formally and internationally recognised courses that are followed by those entering the wine and hospitality trades. These enjoyable courses are ideal also for those who seek official recognition of their achievements. Emphasis is on personal tuition and group discussion in our unique, historic, intimate and inspiring surroundings. As well as delicious picnic-style lunches, refreshments are served during the two sessions each day. The course ends with a celebratory glass of Champagne to toast your achievement. The course cost covers WSET examination fees, WSET course materials, WSET accredited tuition, use of our equipment and our tasting samples. Course materials and mock papers are sent to you two months before the course begins, so you can start your studies before classes commence.
