PFV to host charity dinner in NYC
The Primum Familiae Vini group of winemakers will be hosting a charity dinner in New York this October featuring 12 rare wines from each estate.
Taking place on 16 October at Le Bernardin, proceeds from the evening – which will include an auction hosted by Sotheby’s – will go towards charity Share Our Strength’s ‘No Kid Hungry’ campaign, which is helping deprived children in the US.
The PFV has supported many charities since 1995, raising over US$3 million in that time.
At the dinner, each member of the group will present a wine from their family cellar, all of which can be seen below.
In addition, an auction during the dinner will give guests the opportunity to buy limited edition 12-bottle cases of wine, each of which comes with a ‘passport’ allowing the buyer the chance to visit each of the estates as well.
The wines being poured during the evening will be:
Hubert de Billy: 2008 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill & 1985 Pol Roger Jeroboam
Frédéric Drouhin: 1992 Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet Grand Cru
Jean-Frédéric Hugel: 1976 Riesling Vendange Tardive
