The story behind the bottle shape
In the late 19th century, the wines of Provence were distributed in bulk and served in carafes. Marcel Ott, as a pioneer in Provence, had the idea to create a bottle “La Provençale" symbolising the wines of Provence. Originally his project concerned all the producers in the region but, faced with the cost and complexity of creating such a bottle, no one followed him. In the 1930s, Marcel Ott asked his son René to make a bottle for the Château de Selle. He invented a slender, fleshy and feminine form inspired by the Roman amphora. The model is registered and has become the signature of Domaines Ott.
