Clarendelle, Quintus and Haut-Brion will be the exclusive red and white wines poured at the March 12 Academy Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and at all other Oscar related events. They also have been named the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures' official wine partners in 2023.
The Clarendelle "inspired by Haut-Brion" family of wines finds its roots in the 1935 acquisition of Château Haut-Brion by American financier, Clarence Dillon. Today, under the leadership of his great-grandson, Prince Robert of Luxembourg, the mother company of Clarendelle, Chateau Clarence Dillon, has grown to include famed Paris restaurant Le Clarence (proclaimed one of the 50 Best Restaurants in the World), a fine wine merchant (Negociant) and a number of exceptional wine retail shops, launched in 2015 under the banner of "La Cave du Château". While principally renowned for its excellence in the worlds of oenology and gastronomy, over generations the family company has also become a stalwart supporter of the arts.
