Dry stone masonry dates back to ancient times. However, over the centuries, this humble technique, which is still proving its efficiency today, has produced works of great quality throughout the world.
In Valais, it has shaped an extraordinary landscape, building the hillsides in cascades of walls supporting the vines, sometimes with a crazy audacity. The Valais Vine and Wine Museum has gone up to these walls to better understand their heritage value.
The multidisciplinary team that took on the task was able to describe and explain in a lively and pictorial way their functions, their history, the origin of their raw material, i.e. the stones linked to the geology, their construction technique, their biological value, while paying a beautiful tribute to their builders through warm portraits.
Beautiful book on an original subject, treated in a very complete way.
