Argentina vs Germany

Argentina vs Germany

No, not a football match, but the last topics for our monthly tastings at Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies.  At our Modern Germany tastings in April we covered, as would be expected, some superb whites, but not all were Riesling!  We tasted a lovely Pinot Blanc...

Classic Left Bank Bordeaux

Classic Left Bank Bordeaux

In April I ran a Bordeaux Left Bank fine wine tasting with dinner at Le Salon Privé in St Margarets.  It was a great opportunity to explore just how different the wines are from different AOCs within the Médoc region. The famous 1855 classification 'set in stone' a...

“Throughout the 17 years I have attended Tim’s wine tasting events, he has continued to deliver his extensive knowledge of wine and wine-making with great charm, and lots of humour, making the evenings not only informative, but also great fun. In the course of an average year, the tastings cover a kaleidoscope of different wine themes – interesting and entertaining for all, novices and experts alike. And the wines taste pretty good too!”
"We have been going to Teddington Wine Society events for a number of years. Tim runs the evenings with bonhomie and humour and wears his considerable knowledge lightly. The evenings are great fun, the wines are always a little bit different and help to expand knowledge and tasting horizons.”
“I have attended the Richmond Wine society for over ten years and always enjoyed Tim’s self-effacing style and gentle humour. His knowledge is globally eclectic and presented in a clear, interesting and always stimulating way. Every guest I have taken there has enjoyed the evening immensely. Tim also offers a wide range of wines to buy and my red cellar has provided great pleasure to my own dinner guests.”
"I’ve been enjoying Tim’s tastings for over 20 years - he is a great teacher, raconteur and wine expert. He is seriously passionate about his wine, but there is nothing serious about his tastings, which are always informal and relaxed. A lovely way to spend an evening and enjoy some fantastic wines."
