Venturi-Schulze Vineyards

4235 Vineyard Road
Cobble Hill, BC

Located in Cobble Hill, Giordano Venturi and Marilyn Schulze-Venturi are committed to growing the highest quality grapes without pesticides or herbicides and are crafting world class wines. The family also produces balsamic vinegar. The vinegary or acetaia was expanded by 2,000 sq. ft. in 1999.

It houses dozens of large “nursery” barrels and 108 ageing barrels custom made in Italy from chestnut, cherry, acacia, ash and oak. Each wine is an adventure woven around the season, the soil and the personalities of the varieties and winemakers. They add minimal amounts of sulphide at bottling to some of our wines. None is added to their Brut or dessert wine. To retain as much of the character of the grapes as possible, we neither fine nor sterile-filter, so storage temperatures become important: they recommend 10° to 12°C (50° to 55°F).

All 750 ml bottles are closed with a crown cap instead of a cork. After so much effort in the vineyard and winery, they are not willing to compromise on quality by putting an unpredictable piece of bark in the neck of the bottle.

  1. Hi Giordano and Marilyn,

    I am in the process of dropping into several of the wineries up island in the next coming weeks. I have appointments with some already. I am looking to hit as many wineries in the area as I can.
    My purpose is to introduce some demo radios for you to examine and test out for a week. (These demo radios are free of charge to use for one week if you’re interested) You could find out if they will work well for your operations. Getting instant communications operating and keeping personal cell phones stored away while your staff are working. I will be driving by, and it wouldn’t take much time for you to take a look at the radios. This way you can see if it works well for the day to day operations. Other wineries tell me that this instant communication when working in such great distance work well. This may be helpful for communications with the winemaker when they are in the field or somewhere else on the property. Would there be any interest while I am in the area?

    Please let me know and I will add your winery to my list of clients I have made appointments with.

    Best Regards,
