A little-known treasure in the 18th arrondissement is the tiny private vineyard of a monastery, perched high on the hill of Montmartre. Every year, the neighbourhood come together – markets, restaurants, libraries, bookshops, cinemas, theatres and even schools – to celebrate the distinctive vintage that its grapes produce. Between Wednesday and Sunday, there are classes, lectures, shows and small exhibitions, with the main event, a parade, on Saturday afternoon. Local musicians, folkloric societies and artists all take part, but also many wine and dining societies come to flaunt their coats of arms and velvet robes. Fireworks light up the Sacré Coeur on Saturday night, and the closing on Sunday features many concerts.

Artisans and producers from the four corners of France all attend, selling sausages, charcuterie, oysters, honey, cheese and more. The prices are pretty high, but the produce is of a rare quality for Paris.

The full programme (in French) is available here.
