Tasting Rothschild wines

Manor Shop

Visit our new wine shop where, for the first time, we are offering daily free tastings as well as the chance to buy 50ml pours of Rothschild fine wines.

Elephant Automaton

Musical elephant

The elephant automaton was one of Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild’s most admired treasures. It was mentioned in a local newspaper report of 1889 describing the visit of the Shah of Persia, who asked to see the mechanism perform again and again.
