About Us

Venteux symbolizes the passion and fortitude of two families joining together to create one vision of viticultural excellence.

At Venteux Vineyards, the Goldenberg and Stelzle families are dedicated to producing exceptional wines. From soil to bottle, our hands-on approach allows us to uphold the highest level of care in all aspects of the winemaking process. We are continually working to improve and maintain a healthy and beautiful property for our neighbors, our wine-country visitors and ourselves.

We consider ourselves to be purists. We strive to perfect every wine we produce by using only wild native yeasts and filling every bottle with the finest varietals from select vineyards. Our farming and winemaking practices are 100% natural.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1464721398704{margin-right: 10px !important;margin-left: 10px !important;}”]

Our Vineyard


Our twenty-two acre vineyard property in the Templeton Gap is situated in a unique microclimate known for hot dry days and cool damp nights. Ideal for dry-farmed, head-trained vines, our estate produces intensely bold and flavorful Rhône varietals.

In addition to our estate-grown fruit, we source grapes from local vineyards throughout the Paso Robles AVA. We also travel as far south as Santa Barbara and as far north as Mendocino in order to purchase fruit from select vineyards that we find to be unique, impeccably maintained, and comparable to our own farming standards and expectations.

Our Winemaker

Venteux Vineyards is the realization of Scott Stelzle’s dream of making classic wines.

Our winemaking is artistry in its truest form, showcasing a style of balance, elegance and finesse. The purity of our 100% varietals and the bold flavor of our blends is a testimony to our dedication and passion for the art of viticulture. Scott’s fine palate, extensive wine knowledge, and minute care are all reflected in every single bottle of Venteux wine.
