Post 15. Old Cellar

On the ground floor of the small building adjoining the stable there is a wine cellar, an example of all the good old cellars of the village that kept the wine cool in summer and warm enough in winter, with walls 80 cm thick.

This is where the vintners of Anniviers kept the wine of the Glacier which was brought up from the valley of the Rhone every year in March. Old cheese was kept on racks that were for the meals organized for each burial. Potatoes that never germinated because they were arranged in holes covered with moss were also kept there. It is here that the social life of the village took place ... Oh, if these walls could talk !
