Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite: family spirit. That's how DBR Lafite defines itself, from Pauillac and the Bordeaux region where it all started to the Corbières, and from Chile to China, via Argentina, a close-knit family of wine estates, each distinct by its terroir and character, but all sharing the same spirit. More specifically they are Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Duhart Milon, Château l'Evangile, Château Rieussec, Château Paradis Casseuil, Domaine d'Aussières, Les Légendes R, Viña Los Vascos, Bodegas Caro et Domaine de Long Dai. Our mission: to listen to and protect the nature that has been with us since the day we started, with now organic viticulture in all our French estates. Believing in our shared desire to bring up our vines with care, curiosity and tenderness and to vinify our wines always looking for balance. In other words: what we do is to Cultivate to pass on. The sixth generation of the Rothschild family is now looking after our vineyards. As a team, wherever we are in the world, we are constantly re-examining and adapting our practices to produce wines that speak about their roots and share emotions, while taking great care to ensure the well-being of our employees, our terroirs and those who will open our bottles.
