Richmond Wine Society - Eclectic Antipodean Whites @ The Britannia

Our focus for June is the realm of lesser known white styles from Australia and New Zealand. Grape varieties from all over the world have travelled to the Antipodes and their expression can often be startlingly  different to our usual expectation thanks to climatic and terroir differences.

Wine makers in Australia and New Zealand have considerable freedom to experiment – unencumbered by historical tradition and regulations.

We will taste a fabulous selection of wines that incorporates the purity of Semillon, some left field Sauvignon Blanc plus a host of other grape varieties such as Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Gris. Gewurztraminer, Roussanne and even an Assyrtiko from the legendary Jim Barry.

This will be the perfect Summer Tasting, conducted both ‘in person’ at Teddington and Richmond Wine Socieites and by Zoom.

Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, runs Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies, which meet monthly.  Tim 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.”
