I’m Tim Syrad, and I have been educating and entertaining people about wine for over 20 years.

Through my monthly wine tastings in RichmondSt Margarets and Teddington, my wine tours to Europe and the New World and my corporate wine events, I celebrate the enjoyment that wine brings.

Together we discover new wine varieties and regions, new aromas and tastes, and fascinating matches between wine and food.  I connect wine lovers with wine makers, introducing the people whose passion and dedication create great wine to the people who enjoy it.

I also sell wines that have been popular at my tastings and send out occasional offers.

If you would like to find out more please get in touch or sign up for my regular updates.
