Surbiton Wine Society - An Italian Wine Adventure @ The Downstairs Bar, Glenmore House

Italy has some of the best wines in the world, but many people don’t get past Chianti. We will certainly enjoy some Chianti (though not in a straw wrapped bottle), but we will also try fresh whites and elegant reds from Piedmont and Friuli in the North, robust red wines from lesser known grape varieties further South, and the magnificent wines of Sicily, a whole world of wine in an island.

We will commence the evening with a welcome drink and taste eight wines – at least one of the wines we taste will retail for more than £50/bottle!

Tim Syrad  has 25 years experience of running wine tastings.  He runs the Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies, and hosts fine wine tastings and dinners in local restaurants. 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.”
