Vina Los Vascos, is one of Chile’s oldest and most highly esteemed estates. Under the auspices of the internationally revered Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) since 1988, they are best known for their reds which stand among the very best in Chilean wine today.
The Vina Los Vascos journey in excellence can be dated back to the mid-nineteenth century when the Echenique family, of Basque origin (Los Vascos translates as The Basques), brought vines back from Bordeaux to improve the quality of their wine. The current vines are from an unbroken line of wine stock due to Chile avoiding the Phylloxera epidemic of the nineteen century which ravaged Europe’s vineyards.
The acquisition of Los Vascos by Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild was the result of a careful search among more than one hundred Chilean wines for one that could meet the Rothschild criteria for excellence and became the first French viticultural investment in modern Chile. The estate has undergone substantial modernisation and has benefited from the viticultural experiences of Bordeaux.
Los Vascos is located in Valley de Caneten (Colchagua), a closed valley in the central zone of Chile, approximately 25 miles from the sea. The valley provides a perfect microclimate for high quality viticulture enjoying ideal weather conditions, intense exposure to the sun, adequate water sources, semi-arid soils and little risk of frost. All the harvesting is undertaken by hand from mature vines, some of which are over 70 years old.
