All the Primum Familiae Vini members are very sad of the passing away of Baroness Philippine de Rothschild. She was a unique inimitable woman in the wine world, with an incredibly charismatic personality and great sense of humour.
We all have lost a dear friend and great supporter of the family values that the PFV embraces.
Our deepest condolences go out to her family.
Alessia Antinori, current PFV President.
Philippine de Rothschild, Chair of the Supervisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, died in Paris on 22 August 2014 at the age of 80 from the effects of a serious operation.
After a notable stage career, not least at the Comédie Française, she became a leading figure in the wine world. With her energy, charisma and radiant personality, she considerably expanded the family company, both in France and elsewhere, and maintained the familys estates at the highest level, the illustrious Château Mouton Rothschild foremost among them.
