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.
