Top 6 Movies for Champagne Lovers

Champagne has been prevalent in pop culture and Hollywood movie-making for years, adding a touch of luxury and glamour to the movies Here’s a few must-watch films for lovers of a good bottle of Champagne.

1. Great Gatsby (2013)

Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s renowned novel, the latest live action instalment brought a particular well-known brand into the limelight: Moët & Chandon. While Gatsby’s character is a Champagne lover, it wasn’t until the 2013 movie that a particular brand was mentioned.

2. James Bond

This isn’t one particular movie, but a whole series. Beloved secret agent James Bond is known for his love of luxuries in life: beautiful women, fast cars and prestige cuvées. The character is seen drinking  Champagne more than any other drink on-screen (yes, even more than a martini, shaken not stirred) – 35 times in total!

The legendary Bond and Bollinger combination is the most famous, but there’s also quite a few references to Dom Pérignon.

“Maybe I misjudged you Stromberg… Any man who drinks Dom Pérignon 52 can’t be all bad.” 

3. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)


Audrey Hepburn played the glamourous Holly Golightly in the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s and was a lover of Champagne often opening a bottle before breakfast.

4. The Seven Year Itch (1955)

“Hey, did you ever try dunking a potato chip in Champagne? It’s real crazy!” – Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch.

5. Casablanca (1942)

Champagne is flowing in the 1942 film Casablanca, not just enjoyed by the characters but as a subtle element to the story, starting from the first scene of Rick finishing a glass of Champagne.

6. Champagne (1928)

We couldn’t miss this classic movie out. Alfred Hitchcock’s 1928 silent movie Champagne famously starts and ends with a shot through the bottom of a Champagne glass.
