It’s almost the most commercialised, tacky day of the year!

I kid…

What I mean to say was… Soon it shall be the 14th February, the day St Valentine (supposedly) shot you in the ass and you found some love.

Whether you’re spending it with the one you love, your mum or your best girl friends, Veeno is definitely the place to spend it!

Veeno was brought to us by Nino and Andrea, lovers of football, quality wine and authentic food. They only opened their first wine bar in 2013 and have taken the UK by storm, opening 10 bars since then! I was ecstatic to hear that one was opening in Leicester as I love the Nottingham one so much! 

I was kindly invited along to their Selezione Wine Tasting back in November, and it was amazing! It consisted of two white wines, one rose and two reds, accompanied by a platter of appetisers that were specifically chosen to compliment each of the wines. All of this was finished off with a dessert wine and their homemade tiramisu (WHICH WAS TO DIE FOR). All of Veeno’s wines come from their family vineyard in Sicily, Italy, ensuring only the best quality wines make it from their vines to your glass!

It was such a great experience to meet other bloggers, bring my love along and try so many different wines, I never knew I liked rosé until I went Veeno! But I am a red girl at heart ngl.

Anywho, back to the point!

Get booked in as soon as you can, even if it’s not for Valentine’s day. It’s great for all social situations, I even went after work to catch up with my gal pal! (hey Izzy) where we tucked in on a mini cheese board and talked the night away at a little instagrammable table decorated with corks! Such a beautiful place I tell ya.

Veeno really is the perfect setting for a Valentine’s date – for only £26.90pp you and your significant other can partake in this incredible Selezione experience, I am definitely going to book in again. They also cater for vegans & vegetarians too so you wont feel like you’re missing out!

Also, if anyone wants to join me on the Blind Wine Tasting they have on offer, let me know! I’m desperate to try it!
