Teddington Wine Society

Teddington Wine Society runs regular wine tastings covering a diverse range of wines in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

We meet at the Landmark Arts Centre, in the Bell Room, and the price of the tasting includes a buffet meal with wine.  We meet on a series of Fridays throughout the year. We have a membership of over 100, and every month over 30 people attend.

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 St Margarets Wine Societies, as well as fine wine Masterclasseswine coursescorporate 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.

Teddington Wine Society Châteauneuf du Pape and the Rhone Valley @ Home | England | United Kingdom

We kick off our 2018 programme with a look at one of the best known regions in France – the Rhone Valley.

Châteauneuf du Pape and the south will be our main focus as we taste through a superb selection of both red and white wines.  Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre will be the key grapes for the reds while Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier will dominate the whites.  I may also throw in a New World Shiraz to provide a contrast.

The Rhone Valley is a wonderfully diverse and vibrant region with an absorbing array of wine styles. It provides high quality at many price point and remains innovative in the face of global competition, domestic pressures and the effect of climate change on ever increasing alcohol levels. 

We will taste a broad selection of wines that will reveal the complexity and diversity of the region.

A superb tasting start to 2018 is in store.
