Domaine de Barons de Rothschild is changing leadership, yet remaining in the family. If you buy premium wine, you are likely familiar with the company’s portfolio which includes Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Rieussec and the Chilean Los Vascos wineries, amongst others. Saskia de Rothschild is taking over her father’s role as chairman of the company. She has a business degree and was cochairman with her father for two years before the decision was made for her to take the reins. She will be continuing the 150th year legacy of the family’s ownership.
