A celebration of Top Class Pinot Noir @ By Zoom | Twickenham | United Kingdom

Due to its fickle nature, ability to mutate easily and its quick reflection of terroir and annual weather variation, Pinot Noir is perhaps the hardest grape to get right.

Our event will focus on absolutely top class examples from around the world. It is impossible to do justice to every area but the wines from the majority of the regions discussed below will be tasted.

Tasmania, Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula are viewed as the best producing areas of Australia; Central Otago and Martinborough reflect the best New Zealand can offer; Burgundy of course needs no introduction; Russian River, Sonoma and the Anderson Valley fly the flag for the USA; Hemel-en-Aarde in South Africa is a top class cool climate zone and South America is also producing some fine examples.

I will suggest appropriate cheeses and a some recipes to enhance the evening.

I supply the wines in 50ml glass bottles – enough to hold the tasting amount for each wine that I pour you every month with metronomic precision. The bottles have screwcaps so will be in perfect condition for the tasting.

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.

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.”
