A Lasting Partnership: Piper-Heidsieck and the Oscars®
Each of the House cuvées boasts the audacity and excellence of its founder, whose ambition was to offer a “cuvée worthy of a queen” to Marie-Antoinette, the first avid enthusiast of Florens-Louis Heidsieck’s Champagne. The historic association with the Academy of the Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was inaugurated in the three years between 1990 and 1992, and the bond formed between the two parties was finalized in 2016 with the mutual intent to form a lasting relationship, through 2020 at least.
The alliance is one that was meant to be, linking the body that grants film’s highest awards with the most awarded Champagne House of the century — more than 300 medals since 2002. It has won the fervent approval of Wolfgang Puck, the legendary Chef of the Oscars®. Totally won over by the quality of wines by Régis Camus, Puck opened the doors of the sumptuous Oscar® ceremony to Piper-Heidsieck. This immense honor is one of the many distinctions granted Régis Camus since he joined Piper-Heidsieck in 1994, and made Piper-Heidsieck the most awarded House of the century.
