Veeno, the Italian Wine Café, is set to open its seventh store in Harrogate, creating up to 15 new jobs.
In the spring of 2013, Nino & Andrea, two Italian guys in their twenties randomly met in Manchester after a game of football and found out that they shared a unique passion that 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.
By the end of that very same year, Veeno opened its first store in Manchester. A place where both beginners and experts could enjoy great wines and the most authentic Spuntini ‐ mainly platters of meats and cheeses imported strictly from Italian producers.
Veeno’s wines come from the family vineyard back in Sicily where 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.
Following successful launches in Manchester, Leeds, York, Liverpool, Nottingham and most recently in Bristol on 12 May, the guys are now bringing the concept to Station Parade, Harrogate where they will create 15 new jobs.
Nino Caruso, co-founder of Veeno, said “We’re very excited to be bringing our third cafe to Yorkshire, we regularly see customers visiting us from Harrogate in Leeds and York, and when a unit came to our attention at the Everyman Cinema development in Station Parade we jumped at the chance to take it!”
