The countdown to the 2018 Oscars has begun and in one week all the A-list celebrities will be popping bottles, specifically 2,400 bottles of Francis Ford Coppola Winery wine, which serves over 14,000 glasses!

After serving drinks at this year's Sundance Film Festival in Park City, the winery will now serve their two limited-edition wines at the 90th Oscars, the Academy's official Oscars after-party, and The Governors Ball. The "Oscars 90th Edition" rich 2016 Chardonnay and classic earthy 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon have been featured in the winery's award-winning Director's cut wine collection.

As a 14 time nominee and 6 time winner in the Academy, Francis Ford Coppola customized these two wine bottles just for this year's celebrations.


"The Academy Awards is a ceremony that honors daring, fearless, innovative storytelling, and in that tradition, we have developed two exquisite Director's Cut wines that reflect innovative excellence," says Corey Beck, Francis Ford Coppola Winery's CEO.

Originated in Sonoma County the winery strives for consumers to enjoy all the best things in life. In this case, it's taking home the golden statue!

The stars will have plenty to celebrate and sip throughout the night especially the cast of The Shape of Water with a whopping 13 nominations! Cheers with the stars and host Jimmy Kimmel on March 4.

Tune in to E! Sunday, Mar. 4 to watch Live From The Red Carpet: The 2018 Academy Awards at 5 p.m. and again the following evening.
