Harvest time in Montmartre

To go back to the roots and origins of the Montmarte vineyard, we have to travel far back in time - to the 10th century. Abandoned many times in the course of history, the Montmartre wine tradition finally made a strong come-back in the early 30’s.

Still here today, the Clos-Montmartre celebrates its legacy for 5 days of festivities. During the the Wine Harvest Festival, it’s all neighbourhood which vibrates to the rhythm of harvest.
