Fine Wine Tasting of Chateau Montelena @ by Zoom | Twickenham | United Kingdom

An extraordinary tasting that focusses on an iconic Napa valley estate – Chateau Montelena. This estate shot to fame in the 1976 Judgement of Paris when its Chardonnay defeated top white wines from Burgundy. Since then they have become one of Napa’s top estates and we have an amazing opportunity to taste five of their outstanding Estate Cabernet Sauvignons dating from 2015 to 2004.  The current retail price for the Estate Cab Sauv is £160/bottle.

We will taste eight wines with an average price over £100/bottle.  Each wine will be supplied in a tasting quantity of 50ml.

Wines we are tasting include:
Potter Valley Riesling 2019
Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012
Calistoga Zinfandel 2015
Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, 2014, 2013, 2006, 2004

This is a truly unmissable opportunity to taste such a range of older vintages from this historic Napa estate.

The eight wines will be decanted and delivered on the morning or day before the tasting.  Because of the high value of the wines we are tasting I will need to limit numbers, and may need to make a small charge for postage to addresses it is not practical to deliver to a specific address.

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.

“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.”
