Leonardo DiCaprio Invests in French Champagne Company

Leonardo DiCaprio proudly announced that he bought a stake in the eco-friendly company Champagne Telmont.

The Oscar-winning actor and environmental activist said he was, “Proud to join as an investor in Champagne Telmont.” DiCaprio explained that the sustainable brand aims to offer a greener future.

“Champagne Telmont, together with its partner wine-growers, has set its sights on producing 100% organic champagne, ensuring a completely sustainable production lifecycle in the coming years,” he said.

DiCaprio did not disclose how much money he invested in the company, and his rep did not immediately respond to our request for comment.

Champagne Telmont takes sustainability to a whole new level. Not only does the brand focus on eco-friendly production, it also practices upcycling by collecting used bottles at the Telmont estate and transforming them into candles made with soy wax and untreated wood sticks.

The company was founded in 1912 in northern France.
