Primum Familiae Vini (PFV) will host a remarkable Gala Dinner (Tickets : $5,000 per person) at New York’s Michelin-starred Le Bernardin with proceeds benefiting Share Our Strength’s ‘No Kid Hungry’ campaign.

Primum Familiae Vini was established in 1992 and has grown to include a dozen families: Marchesi Antinori (Tuscany), Baron Philippe de Rothschild (Bordeaux), Joseph Drouhin (Burgundy), Domaine Clarence Dillon (Bordeaux), Egon Muller Scharzhof (Mosel), Famille Hugel (Alsace), Pol Roger (Champagne), Famille Perrin (Rhone Valley), Symington Family Estates (Portugal), Tenuta San Guido (Tuscany), Familia Torres (Spain) and Vega Sicilia (Ribera del Duero). Since 1995, they have been raising funds as Primum Familiae Vini to support charities around the world—primarily organizations that benefit disadvantaged children or specialized hospitals. In total, $3 million dollars have been raised, with a large portion coming from a collaboration with Opus One during 2015’s Napa Valley Auction.
