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.

Teddington Wine Society explores Brazil and Uruguay @ Home

Teddington Wine Society explores Brazil and Uruguay @ Home

In April we head across the Atlantic Ocean  and for the very first time we focus solely on Brazil and Uruguay.

Brazil is the third most important producer in South America behind Argentina and Chile but the vast majority is consumed domestically.
Quality, however, has been on a steep upward curve since the 1990’s and export markets have started to develop.  With a range of microclimates to choose from, Brazilian winemakers are finding success with Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Pinot Noir as well as lesser known hybrid varieties.

Uruguay is the fourth biggest producer and already has a great reputation for Tannat. A substantial immigration from South West France in the 19th Century has developed a small but sophisticated wine producing culture with fresh whites and reds being the hallmark.
As ever, we will taste a bold selection of wines designed to showcase these two nations.

Be prepared for a surprisingly high level of quality.

Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, runs Teddington Wine Society, which meets at on the final Friday of the month in the Bell Room at the Landmark Centre.  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 Richmond Wine Society and hosts fine wine tastings and dinners in local restaurants.

Fine Wine Tasting Dinner – Premier and Grand Cru Champagne @ Bacco
Apr 23 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Fine Wine Tasting Dinner - Premier and Grand Cru Champagne @ Bacco | England | United Kingdom

A superlative evening of Premier Cru and Grand Cru Champagne awaits us in April.
The concept of vineyard grading is not well publicised and yet the “Echelle des Crus” or vineyard classification is crucial in determining the price that growers receive for their grapes.
Less than 9% of the Champagne area is Grand Cru where arguably the best fruit is produced.
We will be tasting a top class range of Champagnes that are either 100% Grand Cru or Premier Cru or a blend of both.
A mix of high quality wines will be on show ranging from small growers to Grande Marques.
A truly exceptional and highly decadent evening of fine Champagnes will be accompanied by a delicious four course meal at Bacco which also demonstrate how well Champagne pairs with food.
As we will have an unprecedented average bottle price and extra Champagne to wash down dinner, the price will be £100.00 per head.

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.
