Andy Warhol Tribute

Dom Pérignon debuts The Tribute to Andy Warhol bottlings of the 2000 vintage

September 6, 2010

The Tribute to Andy Warhol bottlings of the 200 vintage of Dom Pérignon.

Andy Warhol is known for his work with bright, bold colors. Now that same iconic style will be associated with Dom Pérignon. As an homage to the artist, the Champagne house has designed The Tribute to Andy Warhol bottlings of the 2000 Dom Pérignon vintage. The labels on these three unique collector items feature the signature red, blue and yellow colors loved by Warhol in his work.

This tribute to the pop artist is especially interesting because Warhol often went to Studio 54 to sip Dom Pérignon. According to his diary entries, he was part of a group of 20 people who planned to buy 2,000 bottles of Dom Pérignon, seal it in a room, and drink it in the year 2000.


To design these collector bottles, Dom Pérignon teamed up with the Andy Warhol Foundation and enlisted the help of the Design Laboratory at Central St. Martin’s School of Art and Design to reinterpret its timeless Dom Pérignon bottle. The stylish new editions will be available in specialty wine shops on October 15 and will retail for about $150.
