Santa Barbara – On Wednesday evening, at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Moet & Chandon presented Director Quentin Tarantino with the American Riviera Award, which recognizes an artist who has had a strong influence on American Cinema. Quentin celebrated the honor backstage in the Moet Lounge with a mini bottle of Moet, with no flute necessary! The quirky director told fellow guests that the flute atop the mini champagne reminded him of a shot glass, so he pulled it out and drank directly from the bottle! Sounds more like Quentin Unchained than Django Unchained! To celebrate the director’s big award Moet presented him with a crystallized jeroboam of Moet Imperial, which he said was going straight to his bar at home.
