The Master and Mistress Vintner invite members and their guests to take part in the Mosel 2020 Charity Walk from Friday 26 June 2020 to Sunday 28 June 2020.

So we are able to progress the planning of this event, we now ask members to register themselves, with any guests, and make deposit payments. 

Balance payments will be due at the end of April 2020.

If you are travelling by alternative means – driving, by train, or flying to an alternative airport or at very different timings, then please select the package WITHOUT Coach Transfer (£200 per head), and make your own way to Bernkastel.
