About La Fiole

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.

About Bold Red

Full-bodied red wines are the deepest darkest and most tannic of all the red wines. Tannin might sound weird and bitter but the tannin in wine binds to proteins in our saliva and it has a palate-cleansing effect. This is why a bold red wine pairs so wonderfully with a juicy, fatty steak like ribeye. Full-bodied red wines are also quite pleasing and stand on their own as a cocktail wine.

You’ve no doubt experienced one of these wines if you’re a wine lover, they include Syrah/Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and even Pinotage. These are perfect examples of how bold a wine can be.
