Michael, who died last week, was a highly respected and much loved member of the wine trade and former Master Vintner. (You can read Peter’s tribute to Michael via this link.) The service is expected to be very well attended.
The plan is for a glass of wine locally after the service (details to be confirmed). Apparently there’s another service on at the cathedral before so best not to arrive before 3pm.
Any donations in memory of Michael should be made to either ‘The Vintners’ Foundation’ or ‘St. Michael’s Hospice Basingstoke’ c/o Richard Steel & Partners, Alderman House, 12-14 City Road, Winchester SO23 8SD or via www.rsponline.co.uk.
