Learn more about the cellars at Waddesdon which house over 15,000 bottles of Rothschild wine and enjoy a two-wine tasting guided by our team.

Wine has always been a focal point at Waddesdon. It was first served during Baron Ferdinand’s dinner parties in the 1880s. Today, we continue the tradition and take pride in housing the finest of the Rothschild wine portfolio in our cellars, spanning six continents and over 100 wines, including an exceptional collection of historic Rothschild claret dating back to 1868.

After your tour and tasting, you’ll be able to purchase the wines you’ve tasted in the shop and you ticket will entitle you to a 10% discount on the day.
