our family vineyard
Our Founder Nino opened the first Veeno in 2013 to share his passion for wine, food and aperitivo. The aperitivo is a moment of the day, a recurrent feature of the daily or weekly life in Italy. Quintessential of the Italian lifestyle, the aperitif time is a friendly moment spent in good company to chill over a drink and a snack after work or during the weekend.
We want to make sure everyone could enjoy great wines and the most authentic sharing boards of meats, cheeses and other appetisers imported from strictly selected Italian producers.
Our wines come from the family vineyard Caruso & Minini, back in Sicily where great-grandfather Francesco 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 your hand.
Giumarella and Cutaja are the names of the family vineyards from where the wines come from.
A total of 120 hectares are located in the land of the Trapani province. The highest hills, dedicated to the cultivation of the whites varieties, reach an altitude of 450 meters above sea level, whereas the valley bottom is where the red varieties grow.
Every single grapevine was planted following the best combination of exposure, soil and climate. The land hosts local grapes such as Grillo, Catarratto, Grecanico, Inzolia, Zibibbo, Nero d’Avola, Frappato and Perricone as well as some international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah and Merlot.
