The weekend of October 13-14 sees the annual celebration of the Harvest Festival (or Fête des Vendages) in Montmartre. Each year the grapes at the Clos Montmartre — Paris’s only operating vineyard — are picked and made into what the New York Times reportedly called the most expensive bad wine in the city. To celebrate this, fireworks are set off at the Sacre Coeur, and this year I made the trip for you.
