Chardonnay

“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
The main characteristics of this season were an early harvest, low rainfall, and a slight risk of disease and pests. It began with a frost-free winter with little rain and average low temperatures that were rather warm for the period. The spring was then quite mild, despite the temperature dropping below 0°C on two occasions. Finally, the summer was hot with maximum temperatures of over 37°C. As a result of these characteristics, the harvest was 13 days earlier than the previous season, taking place from 12 to 24 February.
