On Sunday the 21st of June, 60 members and family visited the Pangallo Estate Winery in Richmond Grove. Our day began with our traditional rendezvous at Thornleigh, where "double shot" espresso and cappuccino's were in order.
At 9:00am we set off Northbound on the M1 with a cavalcade of 20+ cars bound for Pangallo...incident free, our machines arrived to be greeted by Lyn & Mick Pangallo for wine tasting (very good!) , olive oil and marinated olives to sample and purchase.
We assembled at the Pergola, within minutes enough "nibblies" to last a month was spread over the tables, with everyone sharing and sampling each others specialties!
We were entertained by a singer on guitar singing a few "traditional Italian songs" which were popular amongst our members, all in chorus.
Shortly afterwards we were served pasta with spare ribs cooked in red passata tomato sauce (with parmesan cheese and chilli!). The afternoon unfolded with great company, as members and friends mingled and shared a laugh. Meanwhile, Leo (registrar) set up his portable coffee Bar (2 of the biggest Moka caffettiere you ever did see!
