Our Producer – Azienda Agricola Cos
Cos is an exciting natural winery, founded in 1980 by three university friends on a shoestring budget: Giambattista, Cirino and Giusto. The name comes COS comes from the initials of the surnames of the three friends, Cilia, Occhipinti and Strano. Their wine was an instant success and the producers are considered forward thinkers in both low intervention winemaking and biodynamic viticulture.
The winery is located in the south eastern Sicily, between Ragusa and Gela just a few kilometers away from the sea in a stunning setting of vegetation filled with vineyards and olives, almond and carob groves.
