Born in New York City and raised in France, Antoine’s passion for wine started on a small family vineyard near Pomerol with his grandmother.

After studying Philosophy, a business degree at HEC in Paris and a few years working in finance in New York, he began his career in wine under Frederic Engerer at Château Latour in 2010, as an Ambassador of the Château in the United States.

Since then, he has followed the development of Artémis Domaines under the Pinault family ownership, progressively including other iconic vineyards such as Domaine d’Eugénie and Clos de Tart in Burgundy, Château-Grillet in the Northern Rhône Valley and Champagne Jacquesson, which he represents in the United States.

Antoine has been the Managing Director of Eisele Vineyard since the acquisition of then-Araujo Estate in July 2013. The team at Eisele has now completed its eleventh harvest.
