Veeno Italian Wine Cafe Chester

Recently I was delighted to be invited to Veeno, an Italian wine cafe in Chester, to experience their Selezione wine tasting menu.

"Our ‘Selezione’ Wine Tasting experience features some of our more premium wines. In this truly special experience you’ll enjoy two whites, a rosé and two reds. On top of this, you’ll taste some of our most exclusive and authentic spuntini (appetisers) on a delicious sharing platter which complement each of the wines. Finally, you will taste a sweet wine with our homemade Italian tiramisù. £26.90 per person"

Veeno are the first Italian wine café chain, proud to offer quality Italian wines and appetisers across the UK. In 2013 two Italian guys in their twenties met in Manchester and created Veeno from their mutual passion for Italian Aperitivo - to me and you that means drinking, nibbling and relaxing with friends and family, who doesn't love to do that?! Their wines come from their own family vineyard in Sicily where one of their great-grandfathers' planted the very first vine a very, very long time ago! I love the story behind the brand.

Anyway, our host, Josh (who was pretty damn amazing and very knowledgeable) brought us over a freshly prepared platter of delicious cured meats, olives, cheeses and breads and advised us not to eat it all at once as each part was paired with one of the wines we were about to taste - it was very hard not to just throw it all in my mouth but I am glad we waited.

I won't go into too many details as I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone wanting to go (plus the pictures speak for themselves) but what I will say is that I have never tasted wine like it. We got to try 5 different wines which, for once,  I actually enjoyed the flavours and they tasted crisp, fresh and full of flavour, not just like your usual Pinot you would guzzle at a bar! Josh talked us through each one and the wines had really lovely stories behind them.
The meal was finished off perfectly with an authentic dessert (which I forgot to picture, I just dived straight in) and a sweet wine which I have never tasted before, it was equally as delicious as everything else I had tasted. My friend who I took with me, Maria, was very impressed and her family originate from Sicily so it must have been good!
This would make a perfect treat for friends, a great date idea or even with family! Plus you get 20% off all wines if you were to buy a bottle to take home and after looking at the prices, it is pretty reasonable as they are perfect wines for special occasions, gifts or even just a little treat for yourself!
