Jacob Rothschild, the father of Baron Rothschild, bought Chateau Lafite, located near Bordeaux, with its vineyards and winery for 4.4 million francs on August 8, 1868, 25 years before giving 25 thousand francs to Joseph Feinberg. It was an Italian composer Rossini who advised Rothchild to buy this ancient winery by saying: "You should buy this manor. We can have a good rest there and drink some wine." Both, by the way, died in three months after the purchase with just a day apart. Rothschild's wineries in Château Lafite-Rothschild were inherited by his son Benjamin. On the advice of the manager of the winery, based on Puchachevsky's studies, it was decided to plant some varieties of grapes suitable for wine production in Rishon LeZion. Those were years of the rage of Grape phylloxera, an insect who got in Europe from North America. Therefore, Rothschild winemakers brought to Rishon LeZion previously grafted varieties in Kashmir. So, in 1889 began the history of the winery, which we see across the road, and Rishon LeZion became a place where a new leaf of history was turned over.
