La Urban Vineyards Association festeggia la Fête des Vendanges in Paris, guest of one of its member urban vineyards, the Clos Montmartre. For over 80 years, the Montmartre Harvest Festival has been celebrating the vine and the territory of Montmartre. Already in the 12th century, the ladies of Montmartre Abbey planted the first vines and developed wine production. Before urbanization and housing flourished on the Butte, three-quarters of it was covered with vines, which disappeared completely in 1928 and then were reborn in 1933. Since 1934, every second weekend in October, Montmartre has been celebrating its winemaking tradition and welcoming the arrival of the new cuvée of its vineyard.
