Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite
The Los Vascos wines combine Lafite tradition with the unique terroir of Chile to create elegant wines.
The vineyard, located in the central valley of Chile, in the Colchagua region, between the Andes and the Coastal Mountain Range, 200 km south of Santiago, is a secret known to locals for generations: the land of Viña Los Vascos has an ideal microclimate, with plenty of sun and water, semi-arid soil, and no frost, thanks to the influence of the Pacific Ocean. Perfect conditions to produce exceptional wines.
The wines in our Los Vascos range are single varietal wines from the historic heart of our Peralillo vineyard. The soil of this valley floor is composed of sand and clay alluvium and “tosca,” a hard rock made of compacted volcanic ash.
The grapes are picked early in the morning, fermented at low temperature, and then aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the maximum purity of the fruit. These are fresh and juicy wines, with a touch of sophistication brought by the partial aging on lees.
Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc comes from the coldest parts of our vineyard, where the grapes reflect the typicity of this variety. It is a very expressive wine with a good balance between acidity and volume.
