New Members - Joining the Circle

The Circle warmly welcomes new members who are interested in any or all aspects of wine labels. No prior knowledge is required; indeed membership is a way of learning more about labels and having contact with others with the same interests.
If you would like more information please email us at

Many members have their own collections of labels, some with only a few labels, some with more extensive displays. Other members do not collect but are interested in matters relating to labels. Several museums and other institutions are also members of the Circle.

Membership entitles you to the Circle's Journal which is published annually with occasional Newsletters. Two annual meetings are held, one in the Spring and one in the Autumn, often combined with private viewing of special collections. Equally important is the opportunity for friendly face to face contact with other members.
Please open the document below which has fuller details and a membership application form:
