Primum Familiae Vini
CUSTODIANS OF SOME OF THE WORLD’S
GREATEST WINE ESTATES
The genesis of the PFV occurred when Robert Drouhin and Miguel Torres were walking through a Burgundian vineyard. They discussed the challenges facing family wine companies in an era of globalisation and ever larger corporations. They realised that they shared a common commitment to the continuity of independent family wine companies, combined with an absolute dedication to making great wine.
This conversation inspired the idea of an annual gathering where a select group of representatives from some of the world’s leading wine families could share their collective talents and knowledge in the pursuit of greater excellence. They both knew other families who shared the same desire to sustain their long wine-making traditions, and thus, the Primum Familiae Vini was born.
