Join us in the wine cellars for a relaxed and informal tasting of wines from the Domaine Barons de Rothschild (DBR) portfolio. The wines will boast a varied selection of flavours ranging from crisp and aromatic to rich and spicy. There will be the opportunity to taste wines from the following properties; Château Duhart Milon, Château Rieussec, Château L’Evangile, Château Aussières, Los Vascos, and Bodegas Caro.

Baron James de Rothschild acquired the much sought-after Château Lafite in 1868. Since this significant acquisition, Château Lafite has been owned and managed by DBR, who have expanded its global presence. With notable projects in Chile, Argentina and China, the DBR portfolio is as vast as it is impressive.
