The week in pictures

Champagne House Piper Heidseick kicked off a star-studded week as the official sparkling wine partner for the 90th Academy Awards.

Over 1,500 bottles of French fizz, were popped and more than 8,500 glasses served to Academy Award winners and revelers throughout the evening.

Not to be outdone, Francis Ford Coppola winery signed a three-year deal with the Academy Awards to become its official wine sponsor in 2017 – a natural fit for the California winery owned by film director and Oscar winner Francis Ford Coppola.

Coppola wines — which are also the exclusive choice of the Sundance Film Festival — were the only ones to feature at the awards dinner and Grovenors Ball afterparty.
