Berry Bros. & Rudd App reviewed
...on the Guardian - 29 Nov 2013
Founded in 1698, and still running its original atmospheric shop and cellars in London's St James's Street, Berry Bros & Rudd may be one of Britain's oldest traditional wine merchants, but it's always been quick to adapt to technology. Its content-rich website is a considerable cut above most of its rivals, and its app is no less impressive, allowing you to search through its vast list of 2,000 bottles from around the world (it's particularly strong on the European classics). Tasting notes are informed and informative, and there's some slick extra content in the shape of blogs by the company's erudite buyers and a video wine course.
