Get ready for a festival of sweetness! But the glorious acidity of the best sweet wines will mean this is an exploration of flavour not sugar, with complex and varied wines from the old and new worlds.
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.
I will provide recipe and cheese pairing recommendations, and suggest some suitable desserts from quality supermarkets that would complement the wines well. Blue cheese, pâté, tarte tatin, and of course chocolate mousse may all feature.
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.
