Grape harvest fair in Montmatre

This week-end in Montmatre we are celebrating the " Grape harvest fair" (Fêtes des vendanges). Montmatre is the only place in Paris where we still have a little vineyard that you can see on this picture. The wine is not very good but not that bad either. It is sold in 50cl bottles and the money goes to the local charities.
You can get more information about this event on the Fêtes des vendanges website (available in English).
