Wine Circle

The Garstang Wine Circle was established in 1970. The total membership has varied between 50 and 70 persons. We would normally expect a monthly attendance between 35/45 people.

Our membership is best described as having a mixed interest in wine. A small proportion is seriously interested in learning all about wine and viticulture; for a few, meetings are largely regarded as a social event and not a specific learning experience. The great majority of members fall between the two extremes, having a good interest in wine but not taking it too seriously. The Wine Circle meets at 7-30 pm on the 3rd Monday of each month, with the exception of July and August and we are always happy to welcome new members. Meetings are held in the Arts Centre, Croston Road, Garstang, Lancashire, PR3 1EB. (See contact page for map and directions)  

We also have additional visits to local Vintners and the occasional overseas trip. The annual subscription for Garstang Wine Circle year 2021-22 (September/August) is £15.00 per member. The meeting fee per member is £10.00, for a tasting evening including a light supper and a free raffle for a bottle of wine. Visitors and prospective new members are welcome for a maximum of two visits at a fee of £10.00 per occasion. A condition of membership of the Wine Circle is that Members must join Garstang and District Arts Society , if they are not already a member and the current subscription is £25.
