Champagne Barons de Rothschild


With over 150 years of experience in the winemaking industry, the Rothschild family are quite simply the most famous name in wine. Whilst not establishing a direct presence in Champagne until 2003, they have had an interest in the region since 1945, beginning with an investment in Champagne Ruinart. This was sold to LVMH in 1963, but the family returned in 1966, purchasing shares in Champagne Henriot, a partnership that lasted until 1988. In 2003, the three branches of the family (Mouton, Lafite, and Rothschild Bank) launched Champagne Barons de Rothschild, with an exclusive selection of Premiers Crus and Grands Crus vineyards. Today, based in Vertus, the Rothschild House owns 8 hectares in prime locations across the Côte des Blancs.
