Tasting events and more for wine lovers in Richmond

Richmond Wine Society

Since 2006 Richmond Wine Society has run monthly wine tastings covering a diverse range of wines in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

We meet in person at the Britannia Inn, in Brewer’s Lane, in their upstairs room, and the price of the tasting includes a two course meal with wine. We occasionally meet at the Waterman’s in Water Lane.  Most months we run two events (the same lineup of wines at each), usually on a Sunday and a Monday. We have a membership of over 200, and every month over 50 people attend across the two nights.

We are continuing to run our monthly events via Zoom, with the same topic as we cover at the ‘in person’ event.  On the morning of the event we deliver 5cl samples of each of the wines we are tasting to participants, so all you need is a couple of glasses to enjoy a fabulous lineup of wines.

The format of the evening is designed to be friendly and informal, but informative as well. Absolutely no knowledge of wine is required and whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster there is plenty to learn and enjoy – most of the wines we taste retail at £10-£50, and some months we sample something very rare and expensive.

Read the blog to find out about our latest tastings.

The host is Tim Syrad.  Tim has over 25 years experience entertaining and informing people about wine, and is a member of the Association of Wine Educators. He also runs the Teddington and Surbiton Wine Societies, as well as fine wine Masterclasses, occasional wine courses, corporate events and wine tours.  He is a fervent advocate that wine tasting should be fun, celebrating the enjoyment that wine brings, whether in discovering a new wine variety or region, or perceiving a new aroma or taste, or identifying a fascinating match between wine and food.

Richmond Wine Society – Piedmont’s amazing quality and diversity @ The Britannia
Jan 31 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Richmond Wine Society - Piedmont's amazing quality and diversity @ The Britannia
Piedmont is one of my favourite Italian wine regions that combines fabulous scenery, incredible gastronomy and some of Italy’s best known wine names.
Barolo and Barbaresco are the flagship reds but the region is also host to a fabulous mix of whites, sparkling and sweet wines.
We will explore not only the big names but an eclectic mix of areas and grapes such as Freisa and Arneis that will leave you with a more comprehensive understanding of this stunning region.

Richmond Wine Society – Hunter Valley, an iconic Australian wine region @ The Britannia
Feb 27 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Richmond Wine Society - Hunter Valley, an iconic Australian wine region @ The Britannia

The Hunter Valley is the birthplace of Australian wine with the first plantings dating back to the 1820’s.  Situated just a two hour drive from Sydney, it is renowned for its unique Semillon and Shiraz.  We will also look at nearby lesser known areas such as Orange, Mudgee and Cowra and taste a broad range of wines from top producers. The highlight will surely be the famous Brokenwood Estate Graveyard Shiraz at £100 + per bottle.

This is the first time in a long while that we have focussed on this historic region.

“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."
