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.

Fine Wine Tasting with Dinner – Sherry and Madeira @ Le Salon Privé
Feb 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Fine Wine Tasting with Dinner - Sherry and Madeira @ Le Salon Privé | Twickenham | United Kingdom
Our first fine wine dinner of the year takes place at Le Salon Privé in St Margarets and our subject is Sherry and Madeira.
Both regions are of course famed for their fortified wines, which are mostly drunk as aperitifs and post prandial stickies.  But this barely scratches at the surface of their amazing diversity and complexity.
At this tasting dinner, with the help of Le Salon Privé, we will explore the full range of styles, and set ourselves the challenge to match every course of our meal with a Sherry, a Madeira, or perhaps both!
Fine wine tasting dinners are an opportunity to try more expensive wines than at our regular tastings at Richmond and Teddington, and Le Salon Privé always produces a fabulous meal.

Tim Syrad 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.
