“Great wine adventures have punctuated the history of our family. Dreams that have taken us far away, to the lands of South Africa or New Zealand, where each singularity and each encounter have become assets to be shared. ”

– Ariane De Rothschild

The history of the Rothschilds goes back to the 16th century but really started in Germany in the middle of the 18th century when Mayer Amschel became well-known as a businessman. Towards the end of the century, he gave his five sons the chance to become partners so that they could get to know the family business.

The passion to create and innovate has been handed down for more than 250 years within the Rothschild family. The prestige of this now legendary name shines in numerous fields: finance, philanthropy, wine making, science, fine arts, sailing… Each generation continues to enrich a family heritage that brings together modernity and elegance.

The 5 arrows of the Rothschild family emblem symbolise the 5 brothers who were at the origin of this entrepreneurial dynasty: the 5 sons of Mayer Amschel Rothschild.
