Charles Brotte founded the Maison in 1931. By the 1950's he created the Pere Anselme brand, named after his father, and became a negociant-eleveur; producing a proprietary Chateauneuf du Pape known as La Fiole. This uniquely packaged item is the number one selling Chateauneuf du Pape in the world. His grandson, Laurent, now controls the destiny of the company. Under Laurent's direction, Maison Brotte has acquired ownership of a number of prestigious estates throughout the Rhone Valley. Maison Brotte now comprises two complimentary ranges of wines: the estate line, under the Laurent Charles Brotte label, and the more affordable wines of Vin de Pays and Cepage, marketed under the Pere Anselme brand. All vineyards are Sustainably Farmed!
