Long before Lutèce became Paris, grapevines were cultivated on Montmartre. The Romans had built a temple there dedicated to Bacchus, the god of wine. These "secret" vineyards of Paris are like surviving relics of a time long past. A Benedictine abbey was founded on Montmartre in the 12th Century which included a wine-press operated by the nuns. Although the abbey... More

Just a few blocks away from the busy crowded streets near Sacre Coeur on the northern slopes of Montmartre you will find a small vineyard on a peaceful corner. It is hard to believe that this could be possible. There is no entry to the vineyard, just a peek through the wire fence is allowed. Interesting there has been wine... More

Behind Sacre Coeur on the corner of Rue des Saules and Rue Saint-Vincent is the last remaining vineyard of Montmartre. Wine production started as long ag as the 12th century when the Benedictine abbey was established. This small pocket of old Paris was saved from redevelopment in 1933 when many new varieties of grape were introduced. It is not open... More

Most travellers hang around the Sacre Coeur and the Place du Tertre while visiting Montmartre. Some visit the Dali Space on the south side. But less go to the North, where quite surprisingly wineyards can be found. Those wineyards supply the Clos Montmartre wine which is sold on October's "Fetes des Vendanges" of Montmartre every year. The grapes look just... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
