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 - 20 ha.
