Jura meets Langhe

A Culinary and Cultural Exploration of Two of the World’s Greatest Wine Producing Regions.

We are thrilled to announce an exciting special event that will take place November 5-7 at Neal Rosenthal’s charming chambre d’hôtes, La Closerie les Capucines, in Arbois, France.

The Jura Meets the Langhe is the debut of a series of in-depth comparisons of the great wine producing regions of the world, during which special guests from these two rich viticultural and culinary regions will engage in discussions, tastings, meals, and excursions celebrating their respective terroir.

Rosenthal Wine Merchant growers from the Jura will present their wines alongside those of one of the most esteemed estates of the Langhe, Luigi Oddero.

Renowned chefs Jean-Paul Jeunet from Arbois and Christian Milone from Alba will create special dishes featuring prized local products from their respective regions, such as morels and truffles. Special guests will also include the Montanaro family, owners of TartufLanghe, a prestigious and pioneering truffle company from Alba.

Other highlights of the two-day affair will include a seminar on the wines and culture of the Jura and the Langhe guided by Neal and special guests Aldo Fiordelli of Decanter Magazine and Gelasio Gaetani d’Aragona of Italian auction house Wannenes; visits to Neal’s growers in the Jura; a walking tour of the Arbois; and guided tastings that will include not only wines from the Jura and the Langhe, but also a few special surprises from Neal’s growers in the celebrated Côte d’Or.

The price of The Jura Meets the Langhe is 1,800 EUR per person and includes all meals, tastings, activities, and two nights’ lodging in Arbois. 

Succession Conference


Managing generational change for family-owned domains in France

2-4 November 2021

Closerie les Capucines

Arbois, France

Continuity, renewal, and succession planning are some of the greatest challenges for family businesses. While most embrace long-term outlook and see themselves as stewards for future generations, they are often too preoccupied with the day-to-day operations of the business to put this as a top priority. For some, the topic can be highly emotive, resulting in a reluctance to get the conversation started. Despite the paradox, not acting upon the long-term issues faced can potentially put the survival of the family business at risk.

Join us for an exciting two-day conference, the first of a series, where we bring together wine producers and private and public sector experts from economics, law, finance, estate planning, real estate, agricultural science & technology to address the unique challenges faced by family-owned enterprises particularly with respect to generational transition. Through a series of presentations, panels, and break-out sessions, the conference will offer a multifaceted approach for today’s family-owned domains to identify the questions they need to ask and propose effective paths toward possible answers and solutions.

Hosted by Neal Rosenthal, founder of the Neal Rosenthal Group, and Victoria Anstead, Advisor to the Group, with the support of the INSEAD Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise, the conference promises to be an inspirational yet highly practical session that will equip growers with the knowledge, tools and professional connections to create and implement strategies for successful successions. The conference also provides an excellent platform for professionals, wine enthusiasts, collectors, and investors to learn about issues facing growers and for them to be an active collaborator in developing solutions for the longevity and success of family businesses.

Professor Morten Bennedsen, Academic Director of the INSEAD Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise, The André and Rosalie Hoffmann Chair and Co-director of the Hoffmann Research Fund together with INSEAD Adjunct Professor Antoine Duvauchelle will be hosting master classes and engaging sessions to ignite the next generation throughout the two-day conference.
