Clos MontmatreThe Secret Vineyard of Paris

The French wine industry we know today was started by the Romans who established vineyards a thousand years ago. By 1870 at the time of the Franco Prussian war the last of these earliest vineyards were no more. The Clos Montmarte was created in 1933 and is a vineyard in Paris which is a bit of a secret and when first started was opposed by local authorities who prohibited its building, thus the earnings were donated to charity. The vineyard is 1500 square meters and has approximately 2,000 vines growing there. Every autumn, a five day grape harvesting festival known as the La Fet Des Vendanges is held in which 1,000 to 1,500 of this rare unique wine is auctioned off with its earnings donated to charities.
