Our Wine School offers tutored one-day events in our historic London wine cellars. These are perfect if you wish to condense all your learning into just one day, and also indulge in a lunch. Your newfound knowledge will be immediately put to use with the wines served, and a minimum of eight wines will be tasted during the class. Alternatively you can choose from the range of our London evening wine schools. The focus is the practical aspects of enjoying wine via evening classes. Many wines are tasted blind to make learning both interactive and fun. You will also receive a folder with notes on the wines you have tried and a Berry Bros. & Rudd Certificate when the course is completed. Courses are at 10.45am for 11.00am until 4pm, on various dates falling on mainly Saturdays but also some Thursdays and Fridays throughout the year.

Our One-Day Introductory Wine School is a relaxed yet educational experience, designed to introduce you to the basics of wine tasting and the classic grape varieties. Your tutor will guide you through different pairs of wines, helping you to compare and contrast them and then think about your observations, linking these to the climate and country where the grapes were grown.We will cover all the elements in the glass, from acidity through to tannin, alcohol and oak. At the same time, we will look at the key grape varieties and their regions. You’ll learn to trust your intuitions and may discover you know far more than you gave yourself credit for. The morning tutorial is followed by a superb four-course food and wine matching lunch, during which you will have the chance to practise your newfound skills. Wines to be tasted:
