Harvest Festival in Montmartre

Is this annual event not to be missed? We’ve tested it for you. Our photos, our video, our explanations.

fete des vendanges montmartre coach hotels

Since 1934, an annual celebration lasting several days has taken place in October to mark the grape harvest and the unveiling of the new Clos Montmartre vintage. It’s a popular village festival, steeped in tradition and imbued with folklore, featuring gastronomy and wine.
If you’re interested in village atmosphere, folklore, gastronomy and wine, we invite you to join us at the 2024 fête des vendanges. This year’s fête des vendanges took place from October 11 to 15, 2023. The timeless core of the festivities on the program is the vineyard tour, parade, taste trail, ball and concerts.

THE HISTORY OF MONTMARTRE VINEYARDS

In the 12th century, the nuns of Montmartre Abbey planted vines. However, the abbey’s impoverishment led to the sale of its vineyard plots, and by the 18th century, most of the hilltop was covered in vines, surrounded by prosperous taverns and cabarets.
After Montmartre became part of Paris in 1860, housing began to multiply at the expense of the vines, which finally disappeared completely in 1928. On the initiative of painter Francisque Poulbot and others, the Prefect of the Seine declared the present Clos de Montmartre land unbuildable, to protect the area from real estate investment. In 1933, the City of Paris planted 2,000 vines on the site. The first harvest celebration took place in 1934.

Fête des vendanges from October 5 to 7, 1934. See the film: https: //digital.tcl.sc.edu/digital/collection/MVTN/id/1532/rec/1*

wHERE IS CLOS MONTMARTRE?

the vineyard is located on the northern slope of the Butte Montmartre, along rue Saint-Vincent and rue des Saules. No pesticides or fungicides are used.
1,760 vines from 30 different grape varieties, including one hybrid, produce around 1,300 kilos of grapes, equivalent to around 1,000 bottles of red and rosé wine. The vineyard is managed by a gardener from the Paris city council, under the supervision of an oenologist. The harvest at Clos Montmartre is disconnected from the fête des vendanges. It is not the subject of a special event and takes place around 15 days before the fête des vendanges.
The best view of the Clos Montmartre, where we filmed, is from the Musée Montmartre, which we particularly recommend you visit.(read our article). You can also book a visit to the vineyards on the Musée Montmartre website:

In the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh in Montmartre

Walk with us through the streets of Montmartre. An 8-stage tour illustrating the life of one of the greatest figures in 19th-century painting, from March 1886 to February 1888.When we talk about Vincent Van Gogh, we often mention Arles, Saint-Remy or Auvers sur Oise. However, Vincent Van Gogh spent two very important years of his life in Montmartre, which were to contribute to his artistic breakthrough. It was at the studio of the painter Fernand Cormon, located at 10 rue Constance, 20 meters from the Relais Montmartre, that it all began.

10 RUE CONSTANCE, L’ACADÉMIE

We begin our tour 20 meters from the Relais Montmartre.
Vincent van Gogh was self-taught, and it was only at the age of 27 that he decided to become a painter. He attended the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels and took classes with his cousin, the painter Anton Mauve in The Hague, but he did not draw academically. He was scorned for this.
Shortly after his arrival in Paris, Vincent quickly moved to Fernand Cormon‘s studio at 10 rue de Constance. Vincent was already 33 and looked old to Fernand Cormon’s young students, who were quick to mock him.
It was at 10 rue Constance that Van Gogh metHenri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Louis Anquetin, John Peter Russel and above allÉmile Bernard, of whom he became a close friend.

Fernand Cormon’s studio, 10 rue Constance, was probably located on the 4th floor

54 RUE LEPIC, OR THE IMPROVISED STUDIO

It’s June 1886. Vincent Van Gogh had been in Paris for three months. When he arrived in Paris three months earlier, he had no means of support and was staying with his brother Theo and his wife Johanna in a small apartment, which they left to move to 54 rue Lepic, on the 3rd floor. Vincent’s bedroom window overlooks the rooftops of Paris.
This room was to become his studio. Here he painted many self-portraits and a few portraits of his brother, including this one below, which was long mistaken for a self-portrait.

The two brothers were extremely close, as evidenced by their abundant correspondence. Theo admired his brother and never ceased to support him.
In this apartment at 54 rue Lepic, the Van Gogh brothers received their artist friends Emile Bernard, Anquetin, Reid, Pissaro and others.

948 auto 9660e0ae1a51ca962753ef44a27d7b83 08 54 rue lepic c coach hotels

Théo Van Gogh’s apartment was on the 3rd floor, and was probably a two-bedroom. On the first floor of the building was the gallery of Alphonse Portier (1841-1902), a former paint merchant and patron of the Impressionists, who exhibited Corot (1796-1875) and Cézanne (1839-1906)

83 RUE LEPIC, THE MILLS THAT MOVED VAN GOGH

The Moulin de la Galette consists of two windmills: the Moulin Blute-fin to the west and the Moulin Radet to the east, both acquired by the Debray family of millers in 1809. Between these two mills, a public ball opened in 1834, which became known as the “Moulin de la Galette”, as the Debray family used to distribute galettes.
Vincent Van Goh often painted the Montmartre mills and the gardens above them.

18 RUE SAINT RUSTIQUE, WHERE ABSINTHE IS DRUNK

Vincent frequented many bars and cabarets in Montmartre. Fragile and tormented, Vincent drank. He was known to drink excessively, coupled with a poor diet. Bars and cabarets are not, with a few exceptions, the subject of his paintings.

Le Tambourin, located at 62 boulevard de Clichy, was a cabaret-restaurant frequented by Vincent van Gogh. There he rubbed shoulders with Émile Bernard and Paul Gaugin, among others. He paid for his meals with paintings. The owner was none other than Agostina Segatori, who had posed for Édouard Manet.

25 RUE VICTOR MASSÉ: THE UNEXPECTED ARRIVAL

Let’s go back in time. It’s March 1886. Vincent arrives from Antwerp. It’s at 25 rue Victor Massé, then known as rue Laval, that Vincent invites himself into his brother’s home without telling him in advance. The apartment was small. It’s in the backyard, on the second floor to the left.

AT 9 RUE CHAPTAL, ART IS A COMMODITY

Vincent Van Goh’s father and uncle sent Vincent to Paris in May 1875, to the head office of Goupil & Cie, located at 9 rue Chaptal. At the time, Goupil & Cie was one of the world’s leading art dealers. Vincent was shocked to see art treated as a mere commodity, and expressed his displeasure to certain customers, leading to his dismissal on April 1, 1876. Vincent returned to the Netherlands, but in 1880 his brother found stable employment with Goupil & Cie, before becoming manager of its Boulevard de Montmartre branch. It was thanks to this position that he was able to support not only his brother, but later also Paul Gauguin, making Vincent believe that the money was sent by his father.

14 RUE CLAUZEL, CHEZ LE PÈRE TANGUY

Vincent Van Gogh meets one of the most colorful figures in the Paris art scene of the 1880s and 1890s. Known affectionately by painters as Père Tanguy, Julien François Tanguy ran a color store at 14 rue Clauzel, often accepting paintings in exchange for his wares. Van Gogh painted 3 portraits of Père Tanguy, including this one, which the merchant never wanted to part with. The use of bold colors is clear.
In the background, we see the “Japonaiserie” that Vincent Van Gogh loved so much. The Ukiyo-e style is a Japanese artistic movement from theEdo period (1603-1868) that greatly inspired Vincent Van Gogh, particularly in its use of color. He made numerous studies of it.

EPILOGUE

Vincent leaves Paris in February 1888 for Arles. He wanted to reach Provence for the colors he wished to find. He then moved to Auvers sur Oise, where his psychiatric health became increasingly unstable.
During his lifetime, he is said to have sold only one painting, La Vigne rouge, for 400 francs (around 1,900 euros) to Anna Boch, herself a painter, in February 1890. The painting is both narrative and poetic.
Vincent Van Gogh shot himself in the chest on July 28, 1890 in Auvers sur Oise. His brother Theo died six months later. They lie beside each other in Auvers sur Oise.

Stroll and visit the Musée Montmartre

The Musée Montmartre is one of Montmartre’s most romantic and authentic landmarks. Formed by the union of 3 buildings and several gardens, it was here that many artists such as Auguste Renoir, Émile Bernard, Raoul Dufy, Suzanne Valadon and Maurice Utrillo stayed. The museum includes the gardens and its café, the permanent exhibition and the temporary exhibition.
To reach this romantic and cultural site, we’re going to take a route that’s just as charming as its destination. Follow the trail!

HISTORY OF THE MOULIN ROUGE :

Founded in 1889 on the hillside of Montmartre, the Moulin Rouge is the most famous of Parisian cabarets, with its changing decor and revolutionary architecture.

During the Belle Époque, wealthy businessmen flocked here to indulge in the company of French cancan dancers with their famous leg-lifts.

Among them were La Goulue and Jane Avril, immortalized by Toulouse-Lautrec. The Moulin Rouge has been an eternal source of inspiration for artists, film-makers, writers and painters.

During the 20th century, the cabaret moved from the Roaring Twenties to the post-war period, and underwent numerous restorations. Destroyed by fire in 1915, it was rebuilt in 1921. Mistinguett danced there until 1927.

In 1950, Georges France, known as Jo France, completely renovated the hall.

From 1959 onwards, the Moulin Rouge offered a dinner show with a worldwide reputation.

THE MAGAZINES :

Since the 50s, a dozen revues have been created, the latest of which, “Féérie”, has been running since December 23, 1999.
Conceived by Doris Haug and Ruggero Angeletti, this revue alternates between five tableaux featuring 60 Doriss Girls in dazzling costumes. Feathers, rhinestones and sequins will enchant your eyes.
You’ll marvel at the snake swimmer, who performs a dance in her glass pool, surrounded by reptiles.
You’ll be transported by dances inspired by Indonesia.
