Fine Wine Tasting with Dinner – Sherry and Madeira @ Le Salon Privé
Feb 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Fine Wine Tasting with Dinner - Sherry and Madeira @ Le Salon Privé | Twickenham | United Kingdom
Our first fine wine dinner of the year takes place at Le Salon Privé in St Margarets and our subject is Sherry and Madeira.
Both regions are of course famed for their fortified wines, which are mostly drunk as aperitifs and post prandial stickies.  But this barely scratches at the surface of their amazing diversity and complexity.
At this tasting dinner, with the help of Le Salon Privé, we will explore the full range of styles, and set ourselves the challenge to match every course of our meal with a Sherry, a Madeira, or perhaps both!
Fine wine tasting dinners are an opportunity to try more expensive wines than at our regular tastings at Richmond and Teddington, and Le Salon Privé always produces a fabulous meal.

Tim Syrad 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.
