Have read about a balsamic vinegar made in Vancouver by Venturi Schulze. Any idea where it can be purchased? Thanks.

    See the link below-very expensive stuff!
    Personally I can't see paying that kind of money for vinegar.
    They also produce some very interesting wines-I used to be a big fan before they put the prices thru the roof.

      I've bought their vinegar in the past and I have to say that even though it requires a bit of money to buy it, it's worth every cent! It really is a wonderful product that makes all the difference in the world to food. I was lucky enough to tour the facility and I was told that after 12 years of ageing 1000 gallons of vinegar there remains only 25 to 30 gallons. This would partly explain the price. But do take a look at their website and let me know if you decide to try it and what you think of it. I'm curious. Happy cooking.

        The Venturi Shulze vineyard is on Vancouver Island, near Cowichan. There are a bunch of vineyards in this area - not great wines yet, generally - but pleasant drinking & some very pretty vineyards. The cider from Merridale (? forgotten the name) is AMAZING.

      You can only buy it online as far as I know. And the balsamic is very worth it, you don't have to use a lot because it's so punchy. Best balsamic I've ever tasted, $50 is a steal. and yes, it takes decades to produce an authentic balsamic vinegar, BC only produces one that is made in the traditional style of Modena, Italy... it's venturi-schulze's
