[A conversation with...] Guy Savoy
His restaurant has been named the best table in the world six times. Guy Savoy is genuinely passionate about wine and was the patron of Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris in February 2023. Ahead of the event, he shared his approach to wines and spirits with us.

“The definition of gastronomy is the marriage of food and wine, and sommeliers have taken an important place in the restaurant.”
Chef Sommelier, Guy Savoy restaurant
“The sommeliers stage the wine with the gastronomy; they are the relays of the wine growers and the soils with the complicity of the cooks.”
PHILIPPE FAURE BRAC
Best Sommelier of the World 92
"Our great international meeting to celebrate our profession, our values of conviviality and passion."
At age 27, he opened his first restaurant in Paris and soon achieved recognition on the gastronomic scene. Guy Savoy is now settled at La Monnaie de Paris where he holds 3 Michelin stars and, for the sixth year in a row, the place of Best Restaurant of the World in La Liste. He owns five restaurants, one of them abroad.
Mention “gastronomic cuisine” and he will say that he is a restaurateur. Call him an artist and he will tell you that he is an artisan. However, rave that his food is the stuff of dreams and he will remark that only those who dream are capable of inspiring dreams in others…
