Val des Rois translates to “Valley of the King” and is nestled in the hills outside of Valréas in Southern Rhône. Valréas is one of the northern areas in Southern Rhone producing a rare fresh style of Côtes du Rhône Villages. The pure limestone slopes are found among the rolling hills, peaking at over 1300 feet elevation. Through a combination of organic farming and cool climate fruit, Val des Rois wines reflect balance and purity at the highest caliber.
9th generation winemaker, Romain Bouchard started Val des Rois in 1965 after venturing from Burgundy to plant in Valreas. The Bouchard family has deep roots in winemaking dating back to the 17th century. In 2020 winemaker Stéphane Vedeau partnered with Romain Bouchard’s son, agricultural manager Emmanuel Bouchard.
