Saskia de Rothschild’s family bought Château Lafite in 1868. Today, she heads up a group of some of Bordeaux’s finest châteaux: Lafite, L’Evangile, Duhart-Milon and Rieussec.
These are wildly different estates, but they have at least one thing in common: a firm eye on the future, and on working as sustainably as possible.
