Prince Robert of Luxembourg and family company, Domaine Clarence Dillon, to join Primum Familiae Vini

.

Primum Familiae Vini is pleased to announce that Prince Robert of Luxembourg, representing the fourth generation of the Dillon family’s dedication to fine wine, has joined this unique association of historic wine families, taking the group back to its full 12 members.

Domaine Clarence Dillon are the owners of three iconic vineyards in Bordeaux, Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion and Château Quintus. Under Prince Robert’s leadership, the family company have more recently created the super-premium Bordeaux brand Clarendelle, the Fine wine shop La Cave du Château, the 2 Michelin star restaurant Le Clarence in Paris and Bordeaux’s fine wine merchant, Clarence Dillon Wines. Prince Robert is a founding member, board member and President of the Cultural Committee of La Cite du Vin in Bordeaux, the world’s premier institution for celebrating the heritage and culture of wine.

PFV was created to encourage and celebrate the special contribution that wine families have made over time to some of the world’s greatest wine regions. The 12-member families believe that the sharing of generations of experience between them is of great value in sustaining their vineyards, and that this extends especially to the younger generation who have gained immensely by working in each other’s wineries. Above all, PFV stands for wine excellence and for the continuity of long family tradition, and their special values, in a fast-changing world.

Hubert de Billy of Champagne Pol Roger and current President of PFV commented:

“I am delighted that Prince Robert and his family are joining us. He brings a great family tradition with him and his wines are amongst the best in the world. We welcome a wonderful family and we look forward to sharing some memorable bottles and experiences together.”

Prince Robert of Luxembourg, President of Domaine Clarence Dillon, commented:

“My family and I are truly honoured and thrilled to be included in such a prestigious organisation that shares our values and our long-term commitments to the world of fine wine. Sharing and transmitting excellence in everything that we do, seems to be the very foundation on which this august institution was built. We very much look forward to contributing to the PFV’s continuing and growing success. I am very touched by the warm welcome that has been extended to me and to my family by so many of the existing members of PFV. I look forward to learning from my fellow members as we toast all of those fine wine drinkers who inspire us in our work every day and encourage us through our shared passion for excellence in wine.”

The 12 members of PFV are: Marchesi Antinori, Joseph Drouhin, Egon Muller Scharzhof, Famille Hugel, Familia Torres, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Famille Perrin, Tempos Vega Sicilia, Tenuta San Guido, Symington Family Estates, Pol Roger and Domaine Clarence Dillon.
