Berry Bros. & Rudd
One of the world’s oldest, original wine merchants, indelibly perched on the corner of St. James, veers downstairs to the ancient, low-ceilinged vaults of the preferred off-license of Napoleon Bonaparte, and serving the Royal Family since the reign of George III. Berry Bros and Rudd boasts a new wine cellar, pairing suppers, a Wine School and a scintillating programme of Champagne tastings in one of the capital’s most historic and evocative settings this summer.
