A Grand & Bold Story with the Grand Cinema
From the early 1930s, the house has long supported the grand cinema with boldness and grandeur. In 1964, PIPER-HEIDSIECK created a tailor-made 48-liter bottle to celebrate Rex Harrison’s Oscar for his role in MY FAIR LADY. In order to support the enrichment and preservation of film heritage, PIPER-HEIDSIECK works with the French Cinémathèque and the American Cinémathèque. It has also been the official champagne of the International Cannes Film Festival for more than 20 years.
Created in 1785 by Florens-Louis Heidsieck who aimed to create a wine worthy of a Queen, PIPER-HEIDSIECK is one of France’s oldest Champagne houses. With a grand history, the House has been synonymous with excellence, boldness, and grandeur for over 230 years. One of the world’s most awarded Champagnes, PIPER-HEIDSIECK benefits from the expertise of celebrated winemaker, Régis Camus, who has been named “Sparkling Winemaker of the Year” eight times over the past ten years.
PIPER-HEIDSIECK is imported in the United States by Terlato Wines.
