The Basics

Though wine has been grown in Paris since ancient Roman times, the only remaining vineyard within the Périphérique is Clos Montmartre. A small, 16,774-square-foot (1,556-square-meter) patch of greenery located adjacent to the Montmartre Museum (Musée de Montmartre), the winery also features various fruit trees, and, to the untrained eye, resembles nothing more than a garden. That changes, however, each October, when the annual harvest festival (Fête des Vendanges) is held in the neighborhood and celebrates the winery’s latest bottlings.

Clos Montmartre features on walking-tour itineraries of the neighborhood, as well as various wine-themed Paris tours.

Wandering around the haunts of past artists & authors...
We've visited Montmarte on our own in previous years but joining the walking tour under "Kit" was an eye opener! Kit is very knowledgeable regarding all the famous artists and writers that lived in Montmarte. He will will walk you past the previous haunts of Picasso, Van Gough, Renoir, J.D. Salinger, Gertrude Stein and others. His stories bring the past to life. Kit is also an artist so his perspective is one of appreciation of this historic neighborhood and its living past! Thanks, Kit!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Clos Montmartre’s wines are fermented in the basement of Montmartre City Hall.

  • The vineyard produces roughly 1,000–1,500 bottles annually, though most are purchased as collector’s items—their proceeds are used to support local charities.

  • While the original vines succumbed to phylloxera (a grapevine pest that ravaged France’s vineyards), they were later replanted in 1933.

  • Given its steep slope and elevated position, Clos Montmartre offers views overlooking Paris, including as far as the Eiffel Tower.

  • Each year, different local artists are commissioned to design the wines’ labels.

La Fête des Vendanges

Held every October, the Fête des Vendanges has been celebrated for nearly 100 years. The multi-day festival comprises dozens of events, including ceremonial speeches, tours of the vineyard, musical performances, parades, wine tastings, and even an artisanal food market held in the shadow of Montmartre’s iconic Sacré-Coeur Basilica.
