Johnny, Vince & Sam’s Italian-style drinks range announces expansion with three new additions


Brand News | October 2023

In 2023, their first ever restaurant, Johnny, Vince & Sam’s Ristorante was launched. In addition to this, they moved their podcast The Saucy Meatballs Podcast to LiSTNR, sold out their live comedy taping of their ‘Off The Boat Tour’ at Melbourne’s iconic Palais Theatre in St Kilda and announced they’re taking their tour internationally. They are currently in the process of creating their first feature film and TV Show.

Sooshi Mango (Joe, Carlo and Andrew) – the Melbourne based comedy trio are back…. but this time to add to their already successful ‘Johnny, Vince & Sam’s Vino’ range. Currently available exclusively through Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores nationwide.

Back in 2022, the Sooshi Mango boys, brothers Joe and Carlo Salanitri and their best friend, Andrew Manfre embarked on their journey to create wines that paid homage to their family traditions, and that would make their characters ‘Johnny, Vince & Sam’ proud.

The range of Italian-style wines already include Sangiovese (red) and Moscato (sweet white). Following the success of their Sangiovese and Moscato, the Sooshi Mango trio are proud to announce they have launched three exciting new additions to the Johnny, Vince & Sam’s range, a Prosecco, Rosé, and a delectable limited-edition Tiramisu Crema.

“We wanted to make a product that could bring the family together and for us that meant that it had to be approachable, not fancy or intimidating! Wine is a very important part of our heritage – it’s a staple that is always on the table when we come together as a family. Making wine is a longstanding Italian tradition that has been passed on by generations,” Carlo, Joe and Andrew said proudly.

Their limited-edition Tiramisu is rich and creamy, delicious when sipped on the rocks or poured over ice-cream. The Rosé is light and crisp and is the perfect pair as we approach the warmer months. And what better way to start a night than with their Prosecco, a bubbly and fruity sip for Summer!

Although the Sooshi Mango trio have taken a tongue-in-cheek approach to their vino launch, make no mistake – their range is seriously delicious!

Endeavour Group Category Manager, Ben Lafford, commented on the partnership with Sooshi Mango, “The boys are back and they’ve got some exciting new products too. After the runaway success of the Johnny, Vince & Sam’s Sangiovese and Moscato we are now excited to be partnering with them to launch a Prosecco, Rose and Tiramisu Crema.

Not only is the quality of these great but you also get a sense of the boy’s personality showing through in each one making them perfect for either your next celebration or quiet night in watching the boy’s latest skit.”

Johnny, Vince & Sam will be making special appearances at selected Dan Murphy’s stores across Victoria & NSW in November.
