The name “Vallis” was mentioned in a document written by Charlemagne’s successor in 821, which confirms that Vaux was owned by the Metz abbey.
Vaux has been a wine-growing village since the Antiquity. The 13th century Château de Vaux still produces Moselle wine.
The village was fortified in the Middle Ages. Therefore, very beautiful vestiges remain, including part of a surrounding wall and three arched doors. Inside, the church with its bell tower-keep was full of defensive equipment.
