Trip Report Montmartre: Fête des Vendanges 2012

Jump to last reply

There are quite a few off-peak season travellers here, and I'm sure you know that quite a few major events happen in Paris out of the summer months.

One of the biggest draws in the city is the Fête des Vendanges in Montmartre in the first half of October. All of the other "wine harvest" festivals are in the regions that actually produce wine, but long ago Paris decided that it needed a wine festival as well since it probably consumes the greatest quantity of wine in the country.

Technically, there is a harvest at the very last real vineyard in Paris on rue Saint Vincent, and a few pitiful bottles of wine are produced every year. Not a problem -- all of the wine producers of France are invited to Montmartre and they set up their tasting stands all around Sacré Coeur. And for a whole week, let the party begin!

Unfortunately for latecomers, this year's edition just ended yesterday, but I did make a photo report about it: http://tinyurl.com/c9fxxrm

Rendez-vous l'année prochaine!
