The WLC Spring Meeting:

Leading the discussion will be:
Rupert Slingsby (Associate Director, Woolley & Wallis) and from the Circle, Darrel Rosander (our President, Rupert Wilkinson (WLC Solicitor), Stephen Levy and David Buck.

This meeting is open to members’ guests: and there should be plenty of opportunity for members to get involved in the above discussion.

Meeting cost:
The cost of attending will be £10 per member/guest.

The Lunch and Dinner on Monday 15 April 2019 will be at members discretion and cost: if sufficient members are interested, we would try and arrange a group table and menu. Members should make their own hotel arrangements if required
(suggestions: Kings Head Inn; White Hart and Red Lion).

Car parking
The Central Car Park (SP1 1TT) is recommended, being close to Cote Brasserie, Woolley & Wallis and the Haunch of Venison.

Please let STUART WOOD know, by 31 March 2019, if you wish to attend the Woolley & Wallis round-table meeting on Monday 15 April and any related events.

Autumn Meeting & AGM 2018

We met in Alton, Hampshire, at a local hotel, on Saturday 20th October 2018, following an informal Dinner on Friday and a visit to the Allen Gallery in the town to view their collection of Wine Labels

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.
