Pino's aperitifs

The story of Pino's started with Carmen and Neda who share a passion for Italian aperitif culture and appreciate convenience. One day, two friends decided to create an aperitif of their own and started collecting traditional recipes as well as bartenders' tricks and looking for sustainable ingredients.

After months of testing, selecting, experimenting, tasting and cooperating with renowned Austrian winegrowers, partners finally came up with a drink that embodied the lightness of the aperitif culture in the best possible way.

Today, Pino's offers a line of pre-mixed sparkling aperitifs made of high quality wines and specially developed liqueurs and citrus juices. Three flavours — Sprizz, Lime and Bitter — work just fine with three matching snacks — nuts, crostini and olives that are also produced by Pino's.
