Champagne Thiénot will be the exclusive Champagne featured at the Oscars during the pre-show, as well as at the prestigious Governors Ball, both on Oscar Sunday, February 24, 2013 at the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood. This is the first time the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has elected to feature a little-known, relatively rare Champagne. For many years, Moet et Chandon has been the exclusive Champagne.
“We are thrilled that the Academy has selected our family-owned House for this prestigious event. As a very small and young ‘Grande Marque,’ being selected by the Academy is like receiving an Oscar for Best Champagne!” says François Peltereau-Villeneuve, President & CEO of Thiénot USA.
During the pre-show reception, guests will enjoy Thiénot Brut, while at the Governors Ball the Thiénot Rosé and the Thiénot Vintage 2005 will be paired with the fine cuisine of Chef Wolfgang Puck. see menu Thiénot Champagne comes from the city of Reims, located in the heart of the historic Champagne region. Most of the grapes come from its own vineyards, in the famous Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims.
I am excited for this producer as we distribute it in Illinois through Tenzing Wine & Spirits.
