CULTURE LUXURY EXCELLENCE
Examining wine value leads to examining broader views on culture, luxury and exceptional know-how. Sense of beauty and prestige are intricately linked to cultural heritages, to considerations on mankind, society and nature, through intellectual and spiritual reflections.
VINDÊME SYMPOSION gathers expertise from wine experts as well as geographers, historians, philosophers or theologians to explore the facets of the beauty of wine. For professional or personal purposes, VINDÊME SYMPOSION turns the audience into Aesthetes of Wine.
Terroir exploitation and valorisation are about local and sensorial management, within small businesses, families or divisions of larger groups. VINDÊME SYMPOSION offers specific expertises linked to innovative business models, luxury markets positioning, investments or leadership with this local point of view.
Local action and management aimed at global markets : crafting luxury wearing farmer boots. VINDÊME SYMPOSION focuses on long-term value creation, independence, familial harmony and entrepreneurial success.
Farmers are intimately related to the environment by nature. Each year, winemakers have to turn specific climate conditions into a beautiful vintage. By taking in consideration the slightest temperature, sunlight or rainfall nuances, vine growers are at the leading edge of climatic change awareness.
Wine agronomy and culture are at stake. During lectures and consulting missions, VINDÊME SYMPOSION links climate, business, culture and patrimony dimensions to think ahead inevitable changes and endeavor to put into practice sustainable production models.

Thanks to Mrs Aurélie Labruyère’s comprehensive approach to the world of wines, I could discover fascinating professional stories of entrepreneurship that deepen and enlighten the general business education that I have received in HEC. I could understand better how people act beyond the great wine labels that make us dream. Let’s seize opportunities in this field now!

It’s like I knew Aurélie Labruyère and Julien Gacon for decades. Getting professionally involved with them after the writing of “Esthétique du Vin - Conversations pour amateurs” was a no-brainer decision. Family business is undoubtedly the best type of company to achieve great wines, therefore the world of wines needs empowered families, and I am glad to participate in this great cause through the innovative workshops and seminars we organise together.

We were thrilled to gather our high potential international executives in Versaille for our annual workshops. In addition to our current matters, this was the perfect place for a broader reflection upon luxury. Jewelry has so much in common with art, great wines or vintage cars that we have reviewed together. So far in many aspects, but so close… thanks VINDÊME SYMPOSION for this lecture.
