The winery (or bodega) 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” or “Andes arrows” refers to the 5 arrows, symbol of the Rothschild family (symbolizing the five brothers at the origin of this dynasty of entrepreneurs). Both families Rothschild and Dassault are aiming to produce a wine of excellence.
Each harvest is handpicked, hand selected, and then fermented with high quality requirements in the most modern equipment. Each harvest is manual, selected and fermented with utmost care, modern technology and traditional methods.
This wine was created to fulfil a “Great Argentinian Cru” dominated by the so called Malbec “Gran Corte”.
