The Primum Familiae Vini, an association of twelve European families who are producers in the continent’s greatest wine regions, announced today the launch of The PFV Prize, an annual award of €100,000 to a family company in any area of enterprise that demonstrates excellence in sustainability, innovation, craftsmanship and the successful transmission of responsibility and commitment from one generation to the next.

The winner will have the opportunity to share knowledge with the twelve PFV families, all of whom have a long experience in overcoming numerous and at times existential challenges throughout their histories.

Marc Perrin, President of the PFV, commented:

“We in the PFV believe that family companies are the bedrock of regional and national economies. The best family enterprises have a profound commitment to sustainable development and to the environment. Family companies should personify the best values of social responsibility and the kinder human face of free enterprise at a time when globalisation and a rather depressing uniformity have become increasingly prevalent.

By announcing this prize at a time of international crisis resulting from Covid-19, we emphasise the long-term thinking of family companies and our inherent optimism about the future providing we defend the right values.”

The twelve members of the PFV represent the distinctive voice and deep artisan roots of family companies who are committed to the absolute quality of their wines and all have a long history of dedication to their respective regions. The PFV aim to encourage other family companies to continue their independent development and to prove that a family business can be a powerful tool to respond to the social and environmental challenges of our time.

Applications for The PFV Prize 2020 can be made from 1st July on and will close on 30th October 2020.

The PFV Short List of five family-owned companies will be published in January 2021 and the PFV Prize winner will be announced in March 2021.

The Selection Jury for The PFV Short List and The PFV Prize will be one member of each of the twelve PFV wine families:
