Since 1934, Montmartre has held an annual Wine Harvest Festival at which wineries from all over France showcase their wines. Vendors also sell a variety of delicious food. Mr. Selfish and I knew that we had to attend this festival that was just outside our front door.
We learned a neat piece of trivia – Montmartre only has one functional winery left. It is a small winery that only produces about 2,000 bottles of wine a year and is only about 1,500 m2 (around 5,000 square feet) in size. Nevertheless, this winery is sufficient to warrant a four-day festival and a firework show. Due to the fireworks being set off right in front of Montmarte, the front entrance was blocked off, and everyone was forced to walk on the right-side steps.
