Shoreditch restaurant Manteca has launched its own blend wine, alongside a carefully crafted amaro, or
Italian herbal liqueur. Straight from the vineyards of southern Italy, the wine is a blend of Sicilian varietals from co- operative Valdibella’s 2022 vintage. Named ‘volume one’, it is an aromatic, and textured white wine with notes of honeysuckle and white stone fruit.
