Tuscany Tastings for RWS & TWS

by | Jan 20, 2015 | Richmond Wine Society, Teddington Wine Society | 0 comments

Tuscany and Central Italy is the theme for the first tastings in the Richmond and Teddington Wine Society calendars. The top class wines of Tuscany are well known and loved but there are many, superb gems to be found in Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo and Lazio. Italy is a constant joy and delight and this tasting will give a great insight into some of the lesser known wines. For those coming on my Umbria tours it will be a bit of a sneak preview. I still have places left on some of the tours – get in touch if you would like to attend.

RWS – 28th & 29th January

TWS – 6th February

We had the most amazing  dinner with friends on Saturday. Having taken along some  Pinot Gris 2012 Greywacke, Marlborough – one of my most favourite wines from the tours, our hosts unexpectedly brought out the 2011 of the same wine to go with our trio of Amuse Bouche. Utterly delicious and made by Kevin Judd – a wine legend.

“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.”
