Veeno O’clock at St Martins & Lanes
The expansion of the St Martins and The Lanes area of Leicester as the destination for drinking and dining in the city continues with the opening of Veeno, an Italian wine café that specialises in offering a place where both beginners and experts can enjoy great wines alongside the most authentic deli platters of meats and cheeses imported from Italian producers.
Launched in 2013 in Manchester by two Italian guys in their twenties who met randomly after a game of football to find out
that they shared a unique passion they both loved and missed, the Italian Aperitivo; the ritual of drinking, nibbling and relaxing after work. A daily occasion to share moments of happiness with friends and family.
Veeno’s wines come from the family vineyard back in Sicily where co-founder Nino’s great grandfather Antonio planted the first vines in the 19th century. Since then, they have been working hard to ensure that the quality and tradition flows from the bottle to the glass; so much so that they have been nominated for the prestigious “best wine list” award in the English Italian awards.
Nino Caruso, co-founder & director of Veeno said “We’re delighted to be introducing the concept of Aperitivo to Leicester! We already have a strong following in the Midlands in our Nottingham café with some of our customers
travelling from Leicester to visit us there!”
Veeno is at 19 & 20 St Martins, Leicester, LE1 5DE www.veenoleicester.co.uk
