Fine Wine Tastings and Dinners
The fine wine tastings and dinners I run are an opportunity to try rarer and finer wines, accompanied by fine dining, whether at the Bacco Restaurant in Richmond, Le Salon Privé in St Margarets, or hosted by me at home. I often invite wine makers or suppliers to explain more about their wines.
In response to the UK Government’s advice on social distancing we are not currently running tastings. We will keep the website updated and anyone who has signed up to receive updates about our tastings will be kept informed.
Some knowledge of wine is helpful to enjoy one of these tastings to the full, but the atmosphere is relaxed and the emphasis is on celebrating the enoyment of wine, food and conviviality.
Groups are kept to fewer than 20, and the value of wines tasted can reach £100’s.

Upcoming Fine Wine Events
It is time to finally put to rest all the misinformation about Austrian wine and showcase a truly superb selection of wines that this country produces.
Quality has never been higher and you may be surprised at the range and diversity. With top class sparkling, stunning Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc plus some astonishing Pinot Noir and Blaufrankisch.
Your eyes will be well and truly opened by the quality.
I supply the wines in 50ml glass bottles – enough to hold the tasting amount for each wine that I pour you every month with metronomic precision. The bottles have screwcaps so will be in perfect condition for the tasting.
The eight wines will be decanted and delivered on the morning or day before the tasting. Because of the high value of the wines we are tasting I will need to limit numbers, and may need to make a small charge for postage to addresses it is not practical to deliver to.
Fine wine tasting dinners are hosted by Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, and also runs the monthly Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies. He 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.
