Did you know?

Monastic orders such as the Cistercians and Benedictines preserved and innovated the art of winemaking during the Middle Ages. It is thanks to their research and indefatigable efforts we have such an elaborate winemaking technology today. One of the world's most famous Champagnes Dom Pérignon was named after a monk. Dom Pierre Pérignon (1638-1715), an early advocate of organic wine-making, experimented with new methods, successfully improving the winemaking process. His practices and techniques are still used today.

A fantastic experience with the Berry Bros & Rudd team. Filippe was a very interesting teacher and although not strictly on the syllabus, he answered lots of questions and injected lots of fun into the day. The setting, food and of course wine was exceptional and it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. I cannot wait to do my WSET 2!

The WSET level 1, whilst an introduction to wine tasting, was the perfect level for me to get started. I absolutely love wine and have always wanted to find the time to learn more (and admittedly, now I can really impress at dinner parties) - it was worth every penny and highly recommended. The team at Berry BRothers really know their stuff and booking was so easy through Obby. I will be back for my WSET2!

I have always wanted to take my WSET level 1, so I was so happy to find this wine tasting class on Obby. And little to say, the venue, teacher and learning experience were absolutely incredible. Thanks Berry Brothers, thanks Obby. I can't recommend it more.

About your host, Berry Bros. & Rudd

Berry Bros. & Rudd is Britain’s oldest wine and spirit merchant having first opened its doors in 1698.

Being a supplier to the Royal family since the reign of George III the company has held two Royal warrants from the reign of Edward VII. Still in its original shop at No. 3 St James’s Street London, the shop has altered little since those times providing an atmospheric experience for customers and curious visitors alike.

With over three centuries of accumulated knowledge, the close relationships developed with the world’s finest spirit and wine producers and seven Masters of Wine working for the company, Berry Bros. & Rudd provides the ultimate fine wine and spirits experience.

Whilst embracing its heritage Berry Bros. & Rudd is constantly looking to innovate; being the first wine merchant to create a website in 1994, and temperature controlled wine cellars in the 1960s. Today’s modern state of the art warehouses contain more than 8.5 million bottles of wine.

With the establishment of the warehouses in Hampshire and in the continuing spirit of innovation Berry Bros. & Rudd has made use of the original cellars underneath No.3 St James’s Street. Recently refurbished to a high standard, Berry Bros. & Rudd now runs friendly, fun and informative courses in these historic spaces. Leveraging off all the acquired expertise of the Masters of Wine and numerous other connoisseurs there is no better place to learn about wine and spirits than in the extraordinary Pickering Cellar.
