2 hour class
Join us for an indulgent high tea spent tasting seven Champagnes in three flights.
The first flight will showcase the different grape varieties used in Champagne alongside a lobster salad and some delicious London-cure smoked salmon terrine prepared by our Head Chef.
The second flight will showcase some well-known producers, comparing and contrasting different house styles. As you learn how Champagne is made, coronation chicken and a scrumptious home-made sausage roll will be served.
Finally, we will discuss the concept of vintage Champagne and deluxe cuvée. Should you happen to tire of Champagne, an assortment of artisan leaf teas will also be available for you to try, served alongside a sumptuous sweet selection encompassing two plump scones (one fruit and one plain) with home-made raspberry jam and, of course, clotted cream, plus a delectable brownie dressed with our King's Ginger sauce.

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.
Wines for this event will be chosen from Berry Bros. & Rudd’s stock at the time of the event, so most will be available to order afterwards. Please note, the dress code is smart casual.
