Montmartre Harvest festival

Every year the festival takes place in Montmartre. New wine sampling is held October 9, 2013 – October 13, 2013. Be careful not to confuse this festival with the holiday of Beaujolais Nouveau.

Few people know, but in Montmartre there is a small vineyard of 1600 m2 and a winery. Every year they produce only 1000 – 1,500 bottles of wine. The profits from the sales of this wine are sent to the charity organization for people who are in need.

In 2013 the vineyards of Montmartre holiday will celebrate the 80th anniversary. The organizers have prepared a special holiday program.

Every year they select the godparents of the holiday. This year the godmother is the singer Leroy Nalvenn, who won the French “American Idol” in 2002, and the godfather is a musician and singer Tom Dyutronk.
