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.

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.

Graves - Fine Wine Tasting with Dinner @ Bacco | England | United Kingdom

The Graves region is the closest to Bordeaux and offers a wonderful mix of superb red, white and sweet wines.  No other area in the region offers such variety and yet Graves is often left in the shadow of the more famous communes such as Pauillac and Margaux and the wines of Saint Emilion and Pomerol.

Our exploration will take us to the high quality appellation of Pessac-Léognan – home to the classed growth wines, as well as Sauternes and Barsac and we may even nip across the river to show what Cadillac is capable of.

An impressive array of top wines will be tasted.

The whites will showcase Sauvignon and Semillon at their most impressive and expressive. White Bordeaux is highly underrated and deserves more attention.
Red Graves are highly influenced by the gravelly, well drained soil and both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot thrive.
Sauternes and Barsac need no introduction and the quality bar gets higher and higher.

As always, Bacco will provide a superb meal designed to complement all the different styles of wine.

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.
