About the Winery
Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild have been on the compagnie vinicole helm since 1997, which continues to expand. Excellence is the key thing that can be noted in all the properties, and this is reflected in the wines showing off the environmental aspects, tradition, and craftsmanship.
This is the best way that they pay tribute to the pioneer Baron Edmond de Rothschild and the work he did. Baron Edmond de Rothschild is the father of Benjamin de Rothschild. The company’s history dates to 1973 when baron Edmond bought chateau Clarke. Chateau Clarke was a cru bourgeois estate that was not popular at the time. Baron Edmond was convinced that the lands had outstanding properties and therefore aimed to ensure the property would stand out in the region.
The same goals echoed by the pioneer are shared by Benjamin de Rothschild. this is to cement and fulfil his intuition making sure that all resources that are needed to reveal the terroirs quintessence are provided to help enhance their character even further.
The main thing that Benjamin focused on was to increase the international presence of Compagnie vinicole and develop the best foreign terroirs. Benjamin de Rothschild has created great wines and explored new worlds to experience unique adventures. Through this, he learned about local cultures and the time-honoured practices used. Compagnie vinicole has been active in New Zealand and South Africa for years.
In Argentina, Laurent Dassault and Benjamin de Rothschild created Flexas de los Andes. This is something they worked on from the ground up, and it was situated in Argentina’s Uco valley. This area is one of the most spectacular places in South America, with glimmering glaciers, fertile plains, windswept plateaus, stunning papas, virgin ranges, and forests forming some spectacular landscapes. The other magnificent thing in the area is the vineyards stretching across the imperial Andes mountains foothills.
