Veeno On Castle Street To Host #WOBizClub Festive Networking!

We are delighted to announce that on Wednesday 30th November from 4-7pm our last Business Club event of the year will be hosted in the lovely Veeno on Castle Street!



We are inviting you to join us at Veeno, a relaxed and intimate Wine Bar, in the heart of the city centre on Castle Street for a tipple or two and to celebrate and reflect on a year's worth of great events and networking...

Tickets for this event are just £5 for members of our Business Club and £10 for non-members; this will include a glass or two of wine and some delicious nibbles! If you are not a member of Business Club, but would like to be, simply email businessclub@thewo.org.uk for more details


Veeno will be providing us with their quality Sicilian wine and Italian food in the style of 'Apertivo' - Delicious sharing platters including cold meat cuts, breads and cheeses all from Italian producers paired with expertly sourced Sicilian wine!


'Apertivo' is a big part of Italian culture and it means; 'Nibbling and drinking in a relaxed and informal atmosphere' - And frankly we couldn't think of anything better!

Andrea and Nico, the owners of Vino grew up in Italy and moved to Manchester to follow their studies and jobs, and the story of how they started Veeno (which now has cafes in multiple locations across the UK) is a great one!

“We started playing football together: after one of our matches, whilst having a drink, we found out that we had something in common – we both were Italians abroad with a strong passion for quality wine and authentic food. In Italy, we have the culture of Aperitivo – it means nibbling and drinking in a relaxed and informal atmosphere with friends & family during the later afternoon and early evening. Because this was missing in the UK, we decided to make it our mission to share this amazing tradition with our friends in the city of Manchester.

Thanks to the expertise of our family vineyard in Sicily, we brought our wines to Manchester and then we began to source the best quality “spuntini” (Appetisers) from Italian producers. We opened our first Italian Wine Café in 2013 just off Albert Square in Manchester city centre. Within a year, we opened cafés in Leeds and York.

Today, we have Wine Cafés in multiple locations across the UK, we are growing very fast and spreading the Aperitivo culture’


We are delighted to be partnering up with Veeno to host this festive networking event, it’s going to be a fantastic celebration of a year's’ worth of great business networking, and we hope you’ll be able to join us for a drink or two and a celebration to start the festivities with!


Thank you to Veeno for sponsoring this event!
