The Legend of the Fiole bottle dates back to 1952 and a meeting between a Châteauneuf du Pape wine producer, BROTTE, and a renowned glass artist from the region.
Together they came up with a bottle with a twisted shape, reminiscent of the old Grenache vines bent by the Mistral
Le père Anselme
Much more than just a bottle, it became the perfect container for a Châteauneuf du Pape fine wine.
In a nod to his wife, Charles BROTTE, then a young wine négociant, named this wine after his father-in-law’s father, “Le Père Anselme”, a kindly and well-loved figure in the village.
With its distinctive shape, La Fiole became an icon now found in over 120 countries around the world.
It is with this concern for detail and quality that the descendants of Père Anselme perpetuate the legend of the Fiole, opening the borders of the AOC with the Fiole Côtes and the Fiole Réserve .
