A very successful and well attended meeting was held with presentations on Madeira labels and Wines with a number of Members bringing labels to show and discuss.

Other Meetings

While these are the two fixed events during the year, individual members also meet informally, often at antique fairs , museums or exhibitions. The Circle is a friendly social group as well as a group interested in the many and varied aspects of wine labels. We do encourage members to come to the Spring or Autumn meetings but some members prefer to keep to themselves and enjoy the Circle solely through the Journal.
