Paris vs. Sofia Champagne in a Can Smackdown


OK, I promise not to write about Champagne in a can every single day. No, that’s a lie, I can’t promise any such thing. When there is breaking Champagne-in-a-can news, ES will always bring it to you.

Since SoGood turned us on to the new Paris Hilton-endorsed CiaC yesterday, Brian was desperate to get some for his NYE shindig. While it’s mostly unavailable in this country so far, he did discover that failed actress/successful director Sofia Coppola has her own, slightly less slutty celeb-endorsed fake wine product.

Produced by Francis Ford Coppola’s eponymous wine company, Sofia is a tiny little can of bubbly that, according to the packaging, is both petulant and revolutionary. And let me tell you, both of those claims hold up.

As you can see from the before and after photos after the jump, I was quite skeptical at first, but was ultimately pleased with this odd concoction, which tastes sort of like a fine Champagne cut with cherry Kool-aid. And, it even comes with a fun little juice-box-esque straw.

The verdict: I wouldn’t want to drink these all night, but one is certainly appropriate for a trashy toast. On a Sofia Coppola quality scale, it falls somewhere above The Godfather III and below Lost in Translation. A sort of Virgin Suicides level, let’s say. Stay tuned for further analysis once we are able to get our hands on Paris’ new product.

    Trader Joe’s carried Sofia while I was working there – never quite worked up the nerve to try it, but it definitely sold pretty well.

    I completely concur!! Had Sofia champagne in a can for the first time in San Antonio and being a bubbly fan, was so excited I drank enough for myself as we’ll as many others. The hangover was completely worth it and nothing a spicy Bloody Mary couldn’t cure the next morning of my vacation. On a side note, being from Vegas, it was excruciating not being able to carry libations out on the river walk. However…problem solved! Thanks Copolas. When bouncers and patrolling officers stopped me, I told them it was an energy drink. Lastly, it’s Pink! I rest my case:)
