Venica

One of the most famous winery in Collio: high quality mono-varietal wines

The history of Venica winery begins in 1930, when Daniele, grandfather of the current owners, bought the main body of the company, including the farmhouse and the surrounding vineyards. Since 1930, many generations have been succeeded with the same passion for producing quality wines that brought the winery to excel in the landscape of the Collio.

Today the brothers Gianni e Giorgio Venica, with their families, manage the winery and the agritourism. Here they work in eight blocks of vineyards, three and five in the bottom of the valley on the hills, where the names of the vineyards are written directly on the labels. Fertilization to natural manure is every 3 years or so. The use of technology is very important both in the vineyard and in the cellar: in fact, the vines are equipped with irrigation systems, which are also used mechanical blowers that allow the cleaning of the grapes for the rational use of treatments. The goal that drives Venica to engage deeply in every aspect of winemaking is to get a consistent quality over the years, which can distinguish their own labels thanks to a unique stamp of recognition that makes the wine ready since their youth. For this and as usual, their production is focused only on single-variety. The love for the land and the passion that drives Venica to act better in every phase of the production process of the wine cellar has made this a point of reference in the Collio.
