Presentation of Montefiore & Anchaid

Montefiore & Anchaid was one of the several French shipping companies involved in wine trade in the 1960s. Most of these companies shipped low-quality wine from Algeria to France in tankers known as pinardiers (from pinard, a colloquial word for "wine"). They did not survive the independence of Algeria and the decrease of low-quality wine consumption.
