Fête des Vendanges de Montmartre Wine Experience

3 days

The heart of urban Paris, in the shadow of Sacré-Coeur, may seem an unusual place to celebrate. Yet this festival in the 18th arrondissement, the only district of the French capital with working wineries, has been marking the annual ritual since 1934. As you might expect, the whole event maintains an urbane air, with poetry readings another main attraction of the programme.

Trip details

Day 1

In the middle of October join in the Fête des Vendanges Montmartre “Grape Harvest” festival. Relax on the Eurostar from London on Friday 13th October, on arrival your private driver will be waiting to take you to the hotel in the city’s lively Latin Quarter. Make your way to the only district of the French capital with working wineries, to celebrate the grape harvest at the Fête des Vendanges de Montmartre.

Day 2

After breakfast there’s just time to visit the Louvre before your Paris wine tasting trip begins proper, with a wine and cheese tasting lunch in a nearby 17th century wine cellar. Alongside a selection of artisan cheeses, charcuterie and breads, you’ll taste wines from across the regions of France and learn how to judge a bottle by its label and pair it perfectly with food.

Day 3

The last day of your Paris wine tasting tour is yours to explore the city of lights before returning home. Perhaps enjoy a stroll along the Seine. Or, to satisfy a sweet tooth, cross the river and head to rue Montorgueil, the birthplace of the delectable Rum Baba.
