At the end of this path, down, on your left are the White Cellars, symbol of Grimentz. Built in 1850 as a summer residence and hunting lodge by the prefect of the district Joseph Rouaz, these buildings were divided into apartments, attics and cellars.

Rooms were intended to keep the archives of the prefect and notary Rouaz. Some wine cellars, including that of the “ Société de développement “ of Grimentz / Saint-Jean, are still used today to keep the wine of the Glacier.
