Quality and tradition
Veeno was established in Manchester during the Spring of 2013. The founders being Italian in a foreign country, they both miss the authentic tastes of the Italian Aperitivo—the ritual of drinking, nibbling and relaxing post work. Their vision worked beyond expectations with 10 operating outlets as of today.
Our wines come from Caruso & Minini, our family vineyard back in Sicily where great-grandfather Antonio planted the first vines in the XIX century. Since then, we have been working hard to ensure that our quality and tradition could flow from the bottles to the glass in a customer’s hand. Veeno is the gateway to Italian lifestyle, where taste meets style and attention to detail is driven by passion.
