Born in Normandy, Guillaume moved to London in 1995. He opened the acclaimed “La Trouvaille” in 2001, one of the first restaurant to offer an organic and biodynamic wine list.
Following the success of La Trouvaille, Guillaume opened Antidote in 2011.
Having had years of experience in the industry and built great relationship with natural wine growers around Europe, he decided Antidote would focus on showcasing the best natural wine growers and offer the perfect wine experience to its customers in a relaxed atmosphere.
When it’s not about food and wine then it’s about music.
