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 Medium Red

Medium red wines can be called “food wines.” They offer up tons of flavor with a balance of zesty acidity which makes them match with a wide variety of foods (from zesty salads to rich and cheesy lasagna). These are the perfect mid-week wines for red wine lovers.

There are many varieties that span the mid-weight red wine category so, to name a few familiar ones, check out Grenache, Sangiovese, Merlot, Zinfandel, Montepulciano, Cabernet Franc and Barbera.
