Heritage of Lafite Rothschild wine
Lafite Rothschild wine is produced on the Château Lafite Rothschild wine estate, which has been owned by the Rothschild family since the 19th century, but the origins of the vines can be dated back to 1680. The vineyard has a vibrant history and was even visited by Thomas Jefferson in the 18th century. After the French Revolution ‘reign of terror,’ the estate become public property and passed between owners until it was purchased by James Rothschild in 1868. During WW2, Château Lafite Rothschild was occupied by the German army and saw many of its resources taken. Despite facing adversities, Lafite Rothschild wine continues to thrive due to the passion and determination of its owners.
Why should I pawn my Chateau Lafite Rothschild wine?
While Lafite Rothschild wine is a great asset, it is not an asset that will help you create any capital or offer you any services until it is consumed or sold. Taking a loan on your Chateau Lafite Rothschild wine is a great way to maximise its potential as it can help you access capital while you wait for the right occasion to enjoy or sell your wine.
If this sounds appealing, make an appointment or visit our Mayfair store and receive a free appraisal service for your wine.

In 2012, nearly 10,000 bottles of counterfeit Lafite Rothschild wine were seized in China, so the provenance of the wine will need to be determined.
