If you understand Italian, you can google "vin brulé" + "ricetta" and find dozens of recipes. They will not necessarily be from Venice, but you can probably find one that is similar to the one used there.

Here is a copy of my reply to your(I suppose) post on

Isn't it basically the same as French vin chaud (hot wine)? The venetians (or Italian for that matter?) seem to have invented the name vin brule (sorry I can't write with French accent on the e with my current key-board) using the two French words (maybe they were thinking of creme brule, a French dessert). I had vin brule a few times in Venice last week. It did taste similar to French vin chaud. Usually vin chaud is made of red wine, mix of cinnamon based spices and sometimes a bit of orange juice or slices of orange.
