Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) has made excellence in the vineyard and wine-making practices the basis of its growth. Château Lafite Rothschild was the start of the DBR (Lafite) Group. It was the first Château acquired by the Rothschild family in 1868 and inspires and guides the winegrowing practices at the various vineyards: the expertise and the tradition upheld for five generations by the Rothschild family are applied to all of the properties with the objective of producing high quality wines full of finesse and elegance in the "Lafite Spirit".
"The Lafite Spirit" is based on a rich past and a tradition rooted in the Bordeaux soil, on the handing down of knowledge from generation to generation and on the excellence and refinement of the wines that they help to produce. "The Lafite Spirit" is also the pioneering spirit which has led the Group to open up to the world, establishing vineyards in new regions and producing new, high quality wines.
It is now the fifth generation of the Rothschild family, with Baron Eric de Rothschild at the head of Lafite and the DBR (Lafite) Group.
Baron Eric de Rothschild has brought new drive to Château Lafite Rothschild through his commitment to achieving excellence both in the vineyard and in the winery.
He is accompanied by Christophe Salin, President and CEO of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), who has also contributed to the DBR (Lafite) Group's growth through acquisitions in France and internationally.
