Autumn Meeting & AGM 2017

On Friday 13th October an informal dinner was held at Drapers Hall, Shrewsbury - the home of the Shropshire Drapers - in its magnificent Meeting Room.

The following Day we visited the National Trust's Attingham Hall, starting in the morning with a private tour after which, we inspected the Wine Label collection in the Steward’s Pantry.

Following Lunch at the Hall and the AGM the Curator at Attingham gave us a talk on her work and the setting of the Dining Table

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.
