L’Academie at La Closerie
For Wine Professionals

A 3-Day Immersion into the Jura
A 5-Day Immersion into the Jura and the Côte d'Or

L’Academie 3 Day Immersion: The Heart of the Jura

Over the course of three days, you will meet with leading producers in the Jura selected for their skills as vignerons and their adherence to the grand traditions of this esteemed and unique wine-growing region. Visit, talk and taste with seven different producers including Jacques Puffeney, Michel Gahier and Domaine de Montbourgeau, whose wines are loyal to the methods of their ancestors and do not make concessions to the demands of the modern market.  These classic wines honor the past while setting standards for the future.  

Each day begins with hearty breakfast before morning visits to the producers.  Lunch will be a robust gathering around a local table with a series of wines by the local growers. In the afternoon, the winery and vineyard visits resume until our return to La Closerie late in the day for a brief rest, sauna or massage. Dinner each evening will be in Arbois, prepared by the area’s Michelin-starred chefs and fine local masters. Of course, each meal will be accompanied by a robust selection of wines from the area – and perhaps a few from Burgundy and La Closerie’s bountiful cellar.

L’Academie 5 Day Immersion: The Best of The Jura and The Cote d'Ôr

This comprehensive program adds to our 3-day immersion with a 2-day extension featuring a deep excursion into the Cote d'Ôr to explore both the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. Cellar visits with a group of the most exalted domaines in Burgundy will highlight this 48-hour sojourn. Engage in fascinating conversations with growers with ample time for exchange with colleagues over indulgent lunches and dinners.

For enquiries, please email elise@closerielescapucines.com.



During your days and evenings, you will be treated to the finest of meals prepared by Michelin-starred chefs and more casual fare around the tables of our long-time friends and colleagues in the regions.


La Closerie les Capucines in the charming town of Arbois will be your home for these days. Constructed in the 1600’s of Jurassian limestone, this intimate maison d’hôte offers luxury and peace --- as well as one of the best wine cellars in the Jura.


As our network of artisans and family-owned producers extends beyond the world of wine, we also provide unprecedented access to world-class chocolatiers, cellars full of Comté and Morbier cheeses, an artisan flour mill, an escargot farmer’s niche production and more.
