Inside our newly restored historical cellar, there is still a “Infernòt”, a traditional underground room, hewn out from the soil by hand and protected by the Unesco recognition.
Our Infernòt, like all the others in the area, is made of a peculiar tufa geological formation – locally called Pietra da Cantoni – which can be found in Lower Monferrato only.
The area selected by Unesco includes both the infernòt and the quarries of the stone used to build villages.
What makes these underground rooms different is the complete absence of light and direct ventilation. Compared to proper cellars, the infernòt was usually in a lower position and was used to store bottled wine.
Almost every infernòt has been built by farmers and diggers who had no architectural or engineering notions, but all of them have been preserved intact throughout time and history.
Our Infernòt is still perfectly preserved and can be visited alongside the historical cellar.
