Paris wine harvest invites you to discover the city's wine producing past - and present. Book your stay at Hotel Opera Lafayette, and come along to the 80th Harvest Festival of Montmartre to make friends, celebrate brotherhood and love, and sample the finest wines and gastronomic treats at one of the most exciting events of the year.
From October 9th to 13th 2013, the 80th Harvest Festival of Montmartre is a must for wine lovers and gourmets, or just those who enjoy sampling the finer things in life in a friendly and festive atmosphere.
Traditionally, Montmartre was a wine producing area, and to this day fine wines are still created in a small enclave of vineyards in the heart of the city. Each year, the wine festival is an eagerly anticipated event which not only keeps the tradition alive, but is a veritable feast of the finest French wines and gourmet delicacies.
With a glittering parade, exhibitions and presentations, this magnificent gastronomic celebration has something to appeal to all ages. Children and younger patrons will enjoy sampling fine cheeses and chocolate, while a range of entertainers and artistes keep everyone amused with concerts, shows, and the dazzling musical fireworks at Sacre Cœur.
Transcending age, gender, culture and social boundaries, the Paris wine festival takes 'the art of gourmet food and the art of love' as its theme this year. Embrace 'l'amour' and forge new friendships over a glass of wine at this delightful and stylish event.
Ensure that you don't miss your opportunity to be a part of this sparkling celebration, and make your trip extra special with a break at Hotel Opera Lafayette, a charming foil to the heady festivities of the 80th Harvest Festival of Montmartre.
