The 2017 Governors Ball after The Oscars

The 89th Oscars Governors Ball was once again produced by Cheryl Cecchetto of Sequoia Productions. For 28 consecutive years, she and her team have created a luxury experience for the event. Oscar nominees, A-list celebrities and a select group in the movie industry walked into the space at Hollywood & Highland, where the room had been transformed into a magical party filled with delights.  “I’m in the business of creating experiences and memories that linger long after the last dance,” said Cecchetto.

This year 1,500 guests were entertained by award-winning singer and songwriter Cynthia Erivo. Other entertainment included recording artist Jo-Jo, five-time Emmy nominated music director Rickey Minor, and husband and wife deejays DJ M.O.S and DJ Kiss.

Guest sipped Coppola Family Director’s Cut “Cinema Premiere 89th Edition” red wine blend and Russian River Valley Chardonnay. The red wine blend is made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah.

To toast the evening, the revered French Champagne house Piper-Heidsieck served their Limited Edition 89th Oscars Champagne. Magnum bottles are enrobed in red and have a design of gold encircling the bottle. It’s a beautiful blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay offering sparkling light gold and fine bubbles. The aroma of pear and apple dominate the flavor profile. 

They also  offered a rare 1998 Magnum made from 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. This black and gold bottle has an elegant essence of sandalwood, gingerbread and orange blossom.
