Private access. Privileged encounters. Unforgettable moments.

Le Clos Montmartre

The experience combines a private visit to this urban vineyard to behind-the-scenes visits that show why the rebellious quartier of Montmartre is the only possible place it could exist. We start with our expert storyteller at Sacré-Coeur — itself a controversial remnant of the French Civil War, built where once cannon emplacements stood — followed by a privileged visit to the private Montmartre Museum, which preserves some of the original artist homes and studios on the hill. Here you’ll learn more about how Montmartre went from being a center of working-class revolution to a neighborhood of cabarets, bars, and cafes, frequented by artists, dancers, and intellectuals during the Belle Époque. Afterward, we visit the Clos Montmartre vineyard, with its north-facing slope providing a lovely view over northern Paris and its suburbs. Here, with an expert guide, we’ll learn how this green haven was preserved amidst the bustle of the city, the challenges of growing grapes here, and we’ll taste both red and rosé wines derived from the very vines you’ve touched.
