Charles Brotte founded the Maison in 1931. At the time, most wines were traded in barrel lots. By the 1950's, he created the Pere Anselme brand which he named after his father. Mr. Brotte became a negociant-eleveur and produced a unique Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This wine was packaged in a bottle that paid homage to the illustrious history of the Rhone Valley. The proprietary bottle gave way to the wines name, La Fiole, which means “the Flask”. All of the vineyards are farmed Sustainably! In recent years, the Pere Anselme brand has expanded to include a range of affordable wines that represent the different aspects of the Rhone Valley. Today "La Fiole du Pape" is sold in ninety countries and is the largest selling Chateauneuf du Pape in the world. It is also the only multi-vintage blend allowed under French law. The Pere Anselme line also includes an assortment of Vin de Pays and Cepage wines that offer excellent quality and value.
