The firm was founded in 1931 by the grandfather of the owner today. At that time Charles Brotte established cellars to bottle wines from other producers - a kind of negociant firm.
In the following years the firm has bought vineyards and owns today about 60 hectares: 
Domaine Barville in Chateauneuf du Pape - 15 ha. 
Owned by Laurent Brottes' mother, Christiane Amouroux.

Domaine Grosset in Cairanne - 6 ha. 
Owned by Laurent Brottes' father-in-law Alain Grosset. 
Chateau de Bord i Laudun - 22 ha.
Bought in 1991 by Laurent Brotte and his father Jean-Pierre Brotte.


Since 1952 a well known negociant wine has been made, La Fiole du Pape, a wine blended from different vintages and bottled in a special bottle. This wine is the most sold wine from Chateauneuf du Pape 400.000-500.000 bottles yearly.
In fact the wine should be a Vin du France but more than 60 years of use......
