Escaping the hustle and bustle of St James’s Street, and step down into our newest underground wine events venue, the Sussex Cellar. Elegantly spaced over two levels, the Sussex Cellar combines modern architectural innovation with the feel of our historic cellars.
The space is named after the Duke of Sussex, one of seven Royal Dukes (sons of George III, brothers of George IV) who were regular customers of Berry Bros. & Rudd in the early 19th century. Of the seven Dukes, Augustus Frederick, the Duke of Sussex, was the closest to the Berry family, known to them as “Uncle Sus”.
Nowadays it is home to our Wine School – after all, there’s no better place to learn about wine than in a cellar. Customers can enjoy our excellent tutored tastings, which are an opportunity to try a range of wines – themed by topic such as a region of interest, grape variety or style – and accompanied, of course, by delicious canapés. Read about the Pickering Cellar on the Berry Bros. & Rudd Wine Blog.
