Tasting events and more for wine lovers in Surbiton

Surbiton Wine Society

Surbiton Wine Society offers informal, friendly and informative wine tastings.

Our very first meeting was in October 2020, when we met at 7.30pm in the Elizabethan Suite of Glenmore House for a “A Whistlestop Tour Round the Wonderful World of Wine”.

We enjoyed a range of wines from France, Italy, Spain, New Zealand, Australia and South America.

During lockdown we will run events via Zoom.  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.

Read the blog to find out about online tastings run at Teddington and Richmond.

Absolutely no wine expertise is required, and whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster, there will be plenty to learn and enjoy.  If you are interested in attending, sign up to receive our regular email updates.  

We look forward to meeting you at a tasting soon.

Meet Tim Syrad

“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."
