How You Can Sip on the Same Wine As Your Favorite Celebs
Drink like an award winner.
The Academy Awards® air this Sunday night, and whether you’re watching alone on your couch or with 20 friends crowded around a laptop, you can cheers to the celebs with the thing they’re drinking in Los Angeles.
That’s right. Us plebs can have a taste of the good life — and at a very reasonable price point.
After the actual awards ceremony, A-listers will be heading to the 90th Governors Ball, aka the official Oscars® after-party, where they will be served 2,400 bottles of wine from Francis Ford Coppola Winery – which, yes, is owned by the legendary award-winning director of The Godfather.
Enough wine will be going around to fill 14,000 glasses at the Ball, but you can pour your own and make it 14,001 if you head to your local Walmart. The big box retailer is selling the *exact same wines* that your favorite celebs will be sipping on.
The three Coppola wines are available for purchase, including the winery’s 2014 Director’s Cabernet, a bold red with warm spice notes made from ripe blackberries, cherries and more. The wine won a gold medal at the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Festival.
So, just to be clear: You can sip on an award-winning wine, by an award-winning director.
And only for a solid $15.99-$17.99 per bottle.
Coppola’s 2015 Diamond Collection Claret, a red blend, is available for $13.99-$16.99 a bottle, and their 2015 Diamond Collection Cabernet, a “complex wine with a classic flavor profile,” is available for $12.99-$13.99 apiece.
