Minter Dialogue with Antoine Abou-Samra

Antoine Abou-Samra is a seasoned founder, entrepreneur, and C-level executive who has been CEO of two businesses. Today, based in Beirut, being passionate about food and wine, Antoine is now founder/producer of A Table For Two and creator/host of The Wine Hour podcast. In this conversation, we discuss Antoine’s path, having traversed so many experiences, lived and travelled in many places. We look at the lessons learned while being CEO. He shares his perspective being based in Beirut these difficult days. We also explore his wonderful personal mission that drive his two ongoing projects, building bridges around the world through cuisine and a good bottle of wine.
