One Day Introductory Wine School, Saturday 25th April 2020


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 give 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. Hosted by Katie Daniel, Fine Wine Specialist

We’re thrilled to be re-opening our events spaces at No.3 St James’s Street. Adhering to government guidelines and social distancing, we’re offering a range of courses, tastings and experiences in our historic cellars. We’re also offering virtual events which will be available for you to join from home.

Berry Bros. & Rudd's examination courses are devised by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). These formally and internationally recognised courses are followed by those entering the wine and hospitality trades, but are also ideal for those seeking official recognition of their achievements. Emphasis is on personal tuition and group discussion in our unique surroundings.

As well as delicious picnic-style lunches, refreshments are served during the day. The course ends with a celebratory glass of Champagne to toast your achievement.

The course cost covers WSET examination fees, course materials, accredited tuition, use of our equipment and our tasting samples. Course materials and mock papers are sent to you before the course begins, so you can start your studies before classes commence.
