Wine Knowledge:Watch our films
Our Cellar Plan members are united by a deep passion for wine, whether they are buying for drinking, or investment, or a little of both. The trouble is it can sometimes be hard to keep track of the wines you've bought.
Whatever your budget, occasion or interest, it's our intention as wine merchants to find something to surprise you - in a good way, naturally. This is what Berry Bros. & Rudd has been doing for three centuries, and continues to do so today.
We have been learning about wine for 300 years and there is nothing we love more than sharing that knowledge with our customers. Our Wine School events are designed to be fun: there are no set rules, no right or wrong, just great wines and lively discussions.
Whether you are here for a lunch, dinner, a meeting or a tasting, an event at Berry Bros. & Rudd will be tailored to your exact needs. We work with you beforehand to ensure that every last detail is perfect, from the menu to the seating plan.
We see our Wine Club as a journey for our members. It begins with our relationships with the world’s finest winemakers, whether your interests lie in everyday wines or truly special vintages, we want you to understand not just what you like but why you like it. After all, with knowledge comes the confidence to explore new horizons.
As wine continues to develop long after it’s been bottled, just how it matures depends on how it’s stored. Our own, state-of-the-art storage facilities to ensure that, whether you want to enjoy your wine in a few hours or a few decades, you’ll receive it in the best possible condition.
