The new partnership will expand on Caffè Nero’s authentic Italian cafés by bringing a new reason to visit and stay at the store by enjoying Sicilian wines.

“The worlds of artisanal coffee and artisanal wines are symbiotic in Italian culture as is enjoying time with family and friends,” said Antonio Bertone, co-founder of Alileo. “We’re thrilled to be the first to partner with Caffè Nero to bring this truly Italian experience to their customers and have them enjoy our fantastic wines which are meant to be shared when gathering with friends and family.”

Created by husband and wife team Antonio Bertone and Alexandra Drane, Alileo is produced in partnership with Bertone’s family in Sicily and imported to the United States.
