Marco Grognuz and his son François are from a family of winemakers who settled in 1848 in the small town of Tour de Peilz to cultivate the vineyards. The Cave des Rois is now located in Villeneuve, in the area called Chablais (Vaud). This particular geographical location has encouraged the family to acquire more vineyards in Valais. Thus, the vineyards are now located in Saint-Saphorin (Lavaux), Villeneuve and Les Evouettes (Valais) on the left bank of the Rhone in the Chablais valaisan (Valais). The range of wines reflects this uncommon localisation between the two cantons. In 1986 Grognuz planted Syrah in Lavaux, which at the time was prohibited in Vaud. The winemaker has had sniffs because today the star of its range of wine is the St-Saphorin Syrah, listed in 2007, third best Syrah in the world by the European Grand Jury.
