Sauvignon Blanc

“Being pioneers in Chile was an exciting challenge, and we have chosen a superb location.” Baron Eric de Rothschild
Domaines Barons de Rothschild acquired Viña Los Vascos in 1988, animated by a pioneering spirit and with the vision to reveal the potential of this exceptional land. Today we cultivate a common dream and project : to turn our vast land into a rich ecosystem producing the most elegant Chilean wines.

The vintage
Climate was the byword for the 2020 vintage. Compared to the previous growing season, the harvests were 26 days earlier, which can be explained by a series of weather events. A winter characterized by the cold temperatures necessary for good budding, a warm spring, except for two days of frost that resulted in a natural thinning of the fruit, and a summer with maximum temperatures above 37°C combined with below-normal rainfall. Consequently, optimal conditions for harvesting the Sauvignon Blanc were between 11th and 18th February, when organoleptic maturity was at its peak.
