Description to Orleanais AOVDQS
The name is derived from the historical province of France named after the capital city of Orleans. In the Middle Ages this was an important wine-growing region. It was part of the French royal domain, so the French royal family and the city of Paris supplied themselves with wine from there. Wine transport to the capital was favoured by the short distance (130 km) and a continuous paved road. According to legend, King Henri IV (1553-1610) appreciated Orléanais wines in abundance. However, under Louis XIII (1601-1643), the Orleans wine was gradually abandoned. After the French Revolution, the province was dissolved and divided into the Loiret, Loir-et-Cher, and partly Eure-et-Loir and Yonne departments. The former VDQS Orléanais (also Vins de l'Orléanais) was divided into two areas in 2002, which were then classified as AOC in 2006. These are Orléans and Orléans-Cléry.
