Twelve of the most celebrated winemaking families come together as Primum Familiae Vini, in an extremely rare occasion to pair prized wines with Chef Eric Ripert’s cuisine. An auction of ultra-limited edition items to follow.


Twelve of the most esteemed European wine producers are united as guardians of tradition, conservators of the spirit of family, and pursuers of excellence under Primum Familiae Vini (PFV).

In a rare instance, and sure to be truly memorable experience, they cordially invite you to a gala dinner featuring prized wines that will be presented by members of each family. The wines will be expertly paired with Chef Eric Ripert’s elegant cuisine.

An auction of a single ultra-limited edition case of 12 extraordinary wines will be hosted by Jamie Ritchie, Chairman of Sotheby’s Wine. A PFV passport—offering the exclusive opportunity to visit each estate and be hosted by a family member—will also be auctioned.

100% of the net proceeds from the gala and auction will directly benefit No Kid Hungry.

Tickets: $5,000 per person
