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.

Rishon leZion. This is where it all began. This is not just an expression – this is history.

This is a special tour and a unique route. Its difference from the usual city tour is that your mobile phone is the guide. As in every excursion, it takes time to get used to the tour guide, his style, rhythm and pathways. The only difference is that in this case, you are the storyteller, you are walking yourself and set the pace for yourself - all according to your style. Just give yourself time to get used to it and you will come to life with a story full of the vicissitudes of the lives of real people, a story about their joys and sorrows, a story in which urban legends rise from the past, instill hope and simply sums up: here it all began.
