Berry Bros. and Rudd, a wine shop that can boast of a history spanning four centuries. Yes, four. Count ’em!
There are not many wine shops around the world that have their very own Wikipedia entry. Yes, there are a lot of great wine stores throughout Europe, Britain, and the United States and beyond (Australia’s got some really cool one’s, too).
But there’s really not a single one that can hold a candle to Berry Bros. and Rudd, the legendary store and merchant in England, which can trace its origins back to 1698 (no joke).
When the David Berry Green, the Italian buyer for Berry Bros. and Rudd first came to visit us a few years ago, we were thrilled that he would even have us on his radar.
Today, after many years of doing business together and selling our wines (especially our Colfòndo) at their shop, we couldn’t be more proud to be part of their legendary team.
It seems like a lifetime away but we wanted to make sure it was on everyone’s radar: In March 2017, Bele Casel wines will be included in a tasting flight and seminar to be held at the shop.
And here are the details. We couldn’t be happier to be included!
Date: Wed 15 March 2017
Time: 18:30 – 20:30
Host: Barbara Drew
Venue: Pickering Cellar
Venue Address: 3 St James’s Street
“If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between Crémant and Cava or want to see what all the fuss is about English Sparkling Wine, this event is for you. Barbara will guide you through the world of sparkling wine, looking at why different countries and regions produce such different styles, tasting the best of what each has to offer. We’ll be tasting the wines blind to ensure we focus on what’s in the glass rather than on the label and putting your tasting skills to the test to see whether you can distinguish Champagne from a New World imitator. The evening will be ideal for WSET and MW students, or those wanting to understand more about the world of sparkling wine. Hosted by Barbara Drew, Wine and Spirit Education Specialist.”
