Introduction to Italy, Thursday 7th May 2020


A complex wine country with hundreds of indigenous grape varieties, Italy can be baffling even to the well-versed, and downright daunting to the uninitiated. This evening, however, is designed to demystify the region and leave you feeling confident to walk out the door and tackle your next Italian wine list with gusto. We have selected wines to showcase the classic regions along with some slightly more left-field choices. And, since we know that Italy’s wine is made to match its food, there will be a selection of cheeses and our Head Chef's Italian-themed miniature dishes for you to enjoy as well. Hosted by Rebecca Lamont, Head of Wine School
Dress code: smart casual
NB Wines for this event have been chosen from Berry Bros. & Rudd’s historic stock and may not be available to order following the event.

Tutored Tastings

Tutored Tastings

We’re currently offering virtual events, but from August we are starting to take bookings again. We’ll be offering private dining for smaller gatherings and transforming our Napoleon Cellar into a restaurant, with separate tables for each group of guests. Find out more.

Treat yourself, your family or a client to one of our exclusive tutored or walkaround wine tastings. One of our experts will guide you through a range of wines while educating you on the evening’s topic. From blind tastings to producer focusses, these are unmissable chances to broaden your wine knowledge.

At our walkaround tastings, a selection of fascinating wines will be set out for you to explore, with an expert on hand to elucidate on the evening’s theme.

The Napoleon Cellar and the Pickering Cellar provide the perfect venues for your tutored wine tastings.

Sussex cellar is our newest event space with terracotta archways and intimate yet contemporary feel. Design influences hail from Spanish wine cellars or Bodegas, and use handmade London tiles to create archways and columns that extend through both the mezzanine and the sub-basement level of the cellars.
