An Open Passport to visit twelve of the finest Wine Producing Families in Europe to be offered at Sotheby’s as part of a Limited Edition Primum Familiae Vini case of 12 bottles representing the Wine World’s Leading Names.

LONDON, 12 March 2021: Wine collectors yearning for the chance both to travel and indulge their passion will be presented with an extraordinary opportunity at Sotheby’s this March. For those in the know, the acronym PFV carries a cachet that needs no introduction. Established in 1992, this international association of some of the world’s finest wine producing families from France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain – the Primum Familiae Vini – represents the wine world’s leading names that remain to this day in family ownership. Every year, the families of the PFV each select one of their finest vintages to produce only 12 individually numbered, limited edition cases; Sotheby’s will offer Case Number 1 of 12 from this year’s release. Distinguishing Collection Case Number 1 from the other 2020 Limited Edition Cases is the addition of a rare Primum Familiae Vini passport. With bids starting from £30,000, this very special single lot opens Sotheby’s online sale of wines, running from 12th to 29th March.
