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

Through my monthly wine society tastings in Richmond and Teddington, fine wine tastings and dinners, 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.

The Saturday Cheese Course Catch Up – Spain and Rest of World @ Home
Feb 24 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Saturday Cheese Course Catch Up - Spain and Rest of World @ Home | England | United Kingdom

The second Saturday catch up session of my 2018 Cheese Course at which we will explore the world of cheese and wine, tasting at least 12 wines and 12 cheeses on each day.  

My objective is to broaden people’s cheese horizons – tasting cheese that is in prime condition, and pairing them with the most appropriate wines.

I will provide wines to complement each cheese and we take a journey of discovery that encompasses a huge range of style and taste. Whites, reds, sparkling wines, sweeties and fortified will all feature and I can guarantee that you will taste an eclectically diverse set of cheeses. Cow, Goat and Ewe’s milk cheeses will all feature.

The evenings are very relaxed, informal and no knowledge is required – only a desire to satisfy your hunger and thirst…..I’m confident you will not need to eat dinner after the tasting!

From Spain to a global adventure

Eclectic and diverse are the best words for this session. We will pair lesser known Spanish cheeses such as Tetilla, Peral Blue, Retorta and Pastura with famous wines from regions such as Rioja, Rueda, Ribera, Catalonia, Navarra, Galicia and  Sherry before we head global: perhaps it will be the first time for many to taste Rogue River Blue, Evalon, Limburger Bachensteiner, Pave Cobble, Farfars Parla and more. Expect the unexpected……

Richmond Wine Society – the wines of Tasmania @ The Britannia Pub
Feb 27 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Richmond Wine Society - the wines of Tasmania @ The Britannia Pub

We have a very exciting tasting in February as we reveal the exceptional quality of Tasmania.

There has been a surge in vineyard plantings as both Australian and International investors have begun to realise the potential. Tasmania stands apart from much of the rest of Australia thanks to its island status and the cool climate that prevails within.

There is a wonderfully diverse mix of grapes with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc being at the fore. We will taste an eclectic mix of wines with sparkling and dessert wine also represented amongst the superb whites and reds.

Be prepared for an exceptional evening of extremely well crafted wines.

Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, runs Richmond Wine Society, which meets (generally) on the last Tuesday and Wednesday of the month at the Britannia Pub, Brewer’s Lane, Richmond.  Tim is a fervent advocate that wine is to be enjoyed without snobbery. Whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster, there will be plenty to learn and enjoy.  Tim also runs the monthly Teddington Wine Society and hosts fine wine tastings and dinners in local restaurants.

A Tour de France Wine Tasting dinner @ Le Salon Privé | Twickenham | United Kingdom

The first meeting of the year in St Margarets takes us on a vinous and gastronomic  tour of France.

France, of course, needs no introduction to its wine and cuisine so my aim at this event is to pair some classic and some lesser known wines with a Gallic dinner.

Working with Chef Gianluca di Monaco, we will endeavour to create a journey of the senses as we explore a variety of taste sensations showcasing some superb cuisine and top class wines.

A superb evening awaits.

Fine wine tasting dinners are hosted by Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, and also runs the monthly Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies.  He is a fervent advocate that wine is to be enjoyed without snobbery. Whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster, there will be plenty to learn and enjoy.

Teddington Wine Society finds great value in Burgundy @ Landmark Arts Centre

Teddington Wine Society finds great value in Burgundy @ Landmark Arts Centre
Our focus in March is on the hallowed and famous vineyards of Burgundy but with a twist as we seek out some great value wines from lesser known villages, which we will contrast with some of the better known big names.
Burgundy has a reputation for exorbitant prices but I feel with a bit of research and effort we can uncover some hidden gems that will restore our faith in this famous region.
As ever a top class night of high quality wines awaits.
