The first vines were planted 250 years ago by the Echnique family. This was where Viña Los Vascos now stands (Colchagua Valley in central Chile). The first French grape varieties were introduced around 1850. In 1981 the Bodega was definitively renamed Viña Los Vascos. This was a tribute to the original Basque owners. Since 1988, Los Vascos has been part of the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), a group of wineries led by the renowned Château Lafite-Rothschild in Bordeaux.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of more than 120 meters and approximately 40 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. The sea breeze moderates the heat during the summer months and the area is free from frost in winter. Due to the significant temperature differences between day and night, the grapes ripen slowly and are given every opportunity to develop their full aroma potential. Originally, the vineyards were mainly located in the flat part of the Colchagua Valley.
