Our History

Maison BROTTE is a family independent winery founded in 1931 in Châteauneuf-du-Pape by M. Charles Brotte, one of the pioneers of bottling in the Southern Rhône Valley, and inventor of the famous "La Fiole du Pape"


Our winery was propulsed to the front of the scene with the creation in 1952 of our now emblematic Châteauneuf-du-Pape « La Fiole du Pape », an originaly shaped bottle with a unique winemaking style. It is today the leading cuvée of its appellation, unrivaled by any other French producer.

Winemaking activity at Brotte expanded quickly, thanks to early exports in the 1950s. Today, the House is present in 95 countries, on five continents.

At the Brotte Wine Museum, begun in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in 1970, 25,000 visitors per year from all over the world are welcomed. The museum was renovated in 2014.

In 1991, with the purchase of Château de Bord in Laudun, we became wine growers in Côtes du Rhône Villages and Côtes du Rhône A.O.C.s. This activity has been developed with the addition of two other family estates: Domaine Barville in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Domaine Grosset in Cairanne.

Since 2015, our estates have been granted the Terra Vitis French environmental label, from "the vine to the bottle".

Laurent Brotte, grandson of the founder, today runs the House, with his wife and sons.

2,6 millions bottles are produced per year, under the brands Brotte and Père Anselme La Fiole.
