Vendanges de Montmartre 2011: Experience a Vineyard Festival in the Heart of Paris
The Montmartre wine festival takes place in a picturesque section of the 18th arrondissment... and is instantly recognisable by the white domed Basilica of the Sacre Coeur.
The small vineyard, located in Rue Saint-Vincent, yields around 500 litres of quality wine each year and continues the grand tradition of wine production in this urban district of Paris.
Beats Rhythm and Life in Montmartre
The festival begins early with musical performances, storytelling and street theatre. There is often a reading at Montmartre cemetery and from there people take to the main streets with an air of bonhomie and celebration.
Scores of stalls serve the finest Parisian street food and the local wine flows in abundance. There are tastings, contests, parades, dancing and a real sense of community spirit.
Fireworks, Wine and Artisan Specialties
The event is usually crowned by an intricate fireworks display... and of course plenty more food and wine... with the celebrations often continuing late into the night.

If you're thinking about attending this unique event - and visiting this romantic city as the seasons begin to change - why not stay at the luxury Hotel Balzac.
