Few people know it, but there is an operating vineyard concealed in the popular Paris district of Montmartre, just a few blocks from the busiest city streets. Though the wine it produces is not especially praised by gourmets, the secret vineyard in the middle of the city represents in itself an extraordinary attraction to see.

The area is open for visitors during the months of September and October when grapes are being harvested. In those days the normally silent Montmartre vineyard becomes really noisy as it hosts a range of wine festivals. The most prominent thing is the Fête des Vendanges. This five-day wine celebration takes place in several venues around Montmartre.
