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 Modern Germany @ Landmark Arts Centre
Germany is a long established wine growing region that suffers from the collective consciousness of Blue Nun, Liebfraumilch and massively complicated wine labels.
We will prove to ourselves that Germany has the climate, soil and grapes to produce some of the best wine possible.
Dry whites, rich reds and of course something a big sweet will all feature.
