The winery called FLECHAS DE LOS ANDES was born from the partnership between Baron Benjamin de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault, as the result of their research of a great terroir at the foot of the Andes in the Mendoza region.
The name “Flechas de los Andes” (in English, “Andes Arrows”) refers to the symbol of the Rothschild family, which consists of 5 arrows.
Both families, Rothschild and Dassault, are aiming to produce an excellent wine with the knowledge they have acquired in France.
Malbec rules as “the” wine in Argentina and it has achieved its best expression in the unique terroir of Flechas de Los Andes.
In this ideal location, Edmond de Rothschild Heritage seeks to create a different wine, which could not be produced in other places of the world.
Our winery ́s aim was to achieve this high range “Gran Malbec 2013”, recognized as one of the great Malbec wines from Argentina.
