August 16 and 17 Special Tasting Events!

Space is limited so book now!

We have been getting phone calls and emails asking why you haven't received a newsletter yet this year. That's a long story which I'll send soon!
The wait is over and with so little time for you to plan, we want to let you know about our special Venturi-Schulze tasting events for the release of our stunning new vintages of Brut Naturel and Millefiori. 
The 2010 Brut Naturel (my favourite to date) is 60% Pinot Auxerrois and 40% Pinot Gris. The 2012 Millefiori is also a wonderful vintage and you simply must not miss them. We'll have yummy nibbles, some surprises and a whole lot of fun planned. We have been working way too hard and miss you all terribly, so please book in as soon as possible as space is limited. If you visit Vancouver, you can try the Brut Naturel 2010 at the Blue Water Café in Yaletown.
We will also be handing out our new "Friends with Benefits" cards with special perks  to our loyal case lot purchasers. You can apply to become a Friend with Benefits if you purchase wine by the case and you'll receive case discounts, special access to wines not released to the general public (such as the extrememly popular Piccolo 2012 (exclusively available for the summer of 2014 at Fable Kitchen in Vancouver, Pizzeria Prima Strada in Victoria, and Bridgeman's Bistro in Mill Bay), a waiving of our drop-in tasting fee, invitations to exclusive Friends with Benefits events and access to some of our library wines dating back over 20 years.
Please use our contact page to request a reservation for noon or 3 pm on either Saturday August 16 or Sunday August 17. Don't forget to give your name, phone number and number of people. We'll get back to you to confirm the reservation. There is no charge for our returning customers.

It's an amazing year so far

2014 is shaping up to be a fabulous vintage and we can't wait to show you around. There have been challenges over the past year unrelated to weather. The wonderful things far outweigh them, not least of which has been having Michelle's son Connor share in our life here at the vineyard and see his exuberant enjoyment of every aspect of vineyard life. Our second grandson, born to son Cameron and his wife Allison in the Lower Mainland, is another joy.

If you can't make it to the vineyard, we're happy to ship.
