Pittwater Offshore Wine Syndicate

Sunday October 23rd 2016 at 3pm.


Wine alert! The summer is approaching FAST and the supplies you hold are probably diminishing FAST. Now is the time to circle your virtual (or maybe even paper) diary for SUNDAY October 23rd 2016. The tasting notes and the order forms have arrived and you and yours are cordially invited to attend the pink home of Paul and Pamela (such alliteration!)

A quick look at the list of available wines made my mouth water in anticipation.

Bring friends, family, neighbours, a pen, a copy of the notes AND something nice to share in the way of food.

Remember the rules: We provide the wine to taste, you place an order if you wish quite independent of your little committee.


WHERE: Paul and Pamela's home, third jetty into Elvina Bay on the South side of the bay. Yes the house is painted pink and you are welcome to moor on the jetty if coming from the island or even 'the real world'

DATE: October 23rd. RAIN or SHINE
