"Vin du Glacier" and guided tour of the House of Bourgeoisie / Grimentz

Come and discover the rich and fascinating history of the Grimentz "bourgeoise", the local community.

Vin du Glacier
The principle of the Vin du Glacier is simple: the barrels are never emptied. Every year new wine is added to the old. For example :

- The wine in a barrel from 1888 will be blended with one from 1886
- Wine from 1934 will top up the 1888 barrel
- Wine from 1969 will be used to top up the 1934 barrel and will in turn receive new wine in later years

The “Vin du Glacier” cannot be bought. It can only be savoured in the cellars of Anniviers, drawn directly from the barrel.

The cellar of the Maison Bourgeoisiale (ancient Community House) houses among others the famous Bishop’s Barrel. The wine in this larch-wood barrel dates from 1886. Once destined to the Bishop, it is served nowadays to VIP guests on special occasions.

> It is possible to taste the Vin du Glacier during the visit.
