Teddington Wine Society - Australia in Focus @ Landmark Arts Centre

Having spent virtually all of last November visiting wine regions in across Australia, I felt a review of this amazing country’s wines was the perfect way to kick off our 2020 tasting schedule.

We will explore a wide range of grape varieties (not just Chardonnay and Shiraz!), wine styles and regions that have put Australia firmly on the quality wine map: the Yarra Valley in Victoria, McLaren Vale in South Australia and Margaret River in Western Australia to name but three.

Many of the winemakers we met in November described climate change as their number one concern, and the fires that have ravaged South Eastern Australia over the last few weeks have made that threat a horrible reality for some vineyards. Let’s show our support for these talented, ingenious vignerons by celebrating the fabulous wines they make.

We look forward to seeing you.

 Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, runs Teddington Wine Society, which meets at on the final Friday of the month in the Bell Room at the Landmark Centre.  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.  Tim also runs the monthly Richmond Wine Society and hosts fine wine tastings and dinners in local restaurants.

“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.”
