Move over Piper-Heidsieck, Brad Pitt’s Fleur de Miraval pink Champagne is set to the sparkling wine of this year’s Oscars. The 94th Academy Awards is set to take place on Sunday, March 27 at Dolny Theater in Hollywood, California.
The Champagne brand, which brings together the film star and two winemaking families – the Perrins from the Rhône and Péters from Champagne – will not only be served during the awards ceremony, but also at the Governors Ball – the Academy’s official afterparty – and at other Oscars-related events in Los Angeles, New York City, and London. It was already served at the Oscars Nominees Luncheon on March 7.
Last year’s ceremony featured some notable drinks, with former and long-time Champagne sponsor of the Oscars, Piper-Heidsieck, poured from a special edition bottle that illuminated with the push of a button, while Francis Ford Coppola’s California winery supplied a Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay in a Gold bottle – inspired by the finish used by Prosecco producer, Bottega.

Last year, Brad Pitt and the Perrin and Peters families announced the launch of the second Fleur de Miraval rosé Champagne, ER2. The new sparkling wine is expected to be priced at $400.
Last month, the news broke that Brad Pitt is suing his ex-wife Angelina Jolie for selling her stake in Château Miraval to oligarch and Stoli Group owner Yuri Shefler, allegedly without Pitt’s knowledge.
