PIPER-HEIDSIECK CELEBRATES 5 YEARS AT THE OSCARS®
The French Champagne House Returns for the 91st Academy Awards®
Hollywood, CA (January 22, 2019) – Piper-Heidsieck, the revered French Champagne house known worldwide for its red label, is thrilled to announce its return as the sole Champagne to be served during the 91st Oscars® awards season. The 2019 Academy Awards® season marks the fifth year of a long-term partnership between Piper-Heidsieck and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
We are extremely proud of our five-year partnership with the Oscars and are particularly excited to be pouring Piper-Heidsieck Brut for the 91st ceremony,” declared Benoit Collard, General Manager for Piper-Heidsieck. “This bottle represents the eternal union of the Red and the Gold – the glamour of the red carpet and the prestige of the gold statuette. These symbols have been the source of inspiration for the limited edition bottle created especially for the Academy. This Champagne, bottled in Reims and enjoyed in Los Angeles, is the very expression of the universal magic of cinema, to which we are paying tribute.”
As in previous years, the Piper-Heidsieck limited-edition magnum is custom made for the Oscars and features the House’s signature Cuvée Brut and will be poured exclusively at the awards ceremony and Governors Ball, the Academy’s official Oscars after-party. In addition to the awards ceremony on February 24, Piper-Heidsieck champagne will be poured at Academy events in Los Angeles, New York and London, including the Oscars Nominees Luncheon on February 4, as well as the Governors Ball.

A Grand & Bold Story with the Cinema
The house has long supported cinema with boldness and grandeur, dating back to 1933, when a bottle of Piper-Heidsieck appeared in SONS OF THE DESERT, the debut film of Laurel and Hardy. In 1964, Piper-Heidsieck celebrated Rex Harrison’s Oscar for his role in MY FAIR LADY with a tailor-made 48-liter bottle that was literally as tall as the 5-foot-10 actor. Piper-Heidsieck continues to support the enrichment and preservation of film heritage through the French Cinémathèque and has been the official champagne of the International Cannes Film Festival for more than two decades.
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 and most awarded Champagne houses. With a grand history, Piper-Heidsieck has been synonymous with excellence, boldness, and grandeur for over 230 years. Piper-Heidsieck is part of the EPI Group.
Champagne Piper-Heidsieck is imported in the United States by Terlato Wines.
