Tasting events and more for wine lovers in Teddington

Teddington Wine Society

 

Teddington Wine Society runs regular wine tastings covering a diverse range of wines in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.  We have a membership of over 100, and every month over 30 people attend.

Our final event of the year is our Christmas tasting, scheduled for 5th December. 

This may take place at St Mary’s Parish Hall, with appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols, and will be accompanied by dinner with wine.  
 
If new arrangements post lockdown make an ‘in person’ tasting impossible, we will still enjoy our fabulous wines but in this case by Zoom. Tasting wines, in 5cl portions (the exact tasting quantity I pour in each glass at every event) will be delivered on the morning of the event, so all you need is a couple of wine 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 Richmond 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.

The next Teddington Wine Society Events are:

Sat
Teddington Wine Society Christmas Extravaganza @ St Mary's Parish Hall
Dec 5 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Teddington Wine Society Christmas Extravaganza @ St Mary's Parish Hall

Our Christmas tastings are guaranteed to get the festive season off with a bang. We pull out the stops, tasting fabulous fizz, delicious whites and reds, and of course something fortified.

Plan A is to meet at the St Mary’s Parish Hall.  We will set up the room to ensure appropriate social distancing (according to whatever rules have been announced), but the atmosphere will be convivial!  We will enjoy the now customary Christmas dinner (turkey and trimmings), with a tasting of delicious wines, a veritable Extravaganza of fizz, whites, reds and of course something fortified.
If new arrangements post lockdown make an ‘in person’ tasting impossible, we will still enjoy our fabulous wines but in this case by Zoom.  We am very confident we will enjoy a festive evening – even if we have to provide our own dinner.  We will deliver the tasting wines, in 5cl portions (the exact tasting quantity we pour in each glass at every event) and all you need is a couple of wine glasses to enjoy a fabulous lineup of wines.

We look forward to seeing you.

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."
