The Grapes of Roth-schild
The Grapes of Roth-schild
My apologies for the pun ! The Rothschild family used to own Waddesdon Manor until they gave it to the nation via the National Trust in 1957. They are still intimately involved with the place, and still own parts such as The Dairy - where these vines are growing. Of course the Rothschilds own some rather more valuable vines than these, as two of the World's greatest wines, Chateau Mouton-Rothschild and Chateau Lafite are owned by the family firm.

The Dairy, Waddesdon Manor
While Waddesdon Manor is open to the public being a National Trust property the Dairy is still the property of the Rothschild family and is privately owned by them. However it is available to hire for events such as weddings, and has occasional Open Days. It was built at the end of the C19th to house Lord Rothschild's prize-winning herd of cattle. It is in a beautiful setting next to a small lake and has been refurbished (1989) to a very high standard. For more information see LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link
