Cos Winery

COS are an exciting natural winery in the Vittoria region of Sicily, founded in 1980 by three friends with a dream and ambition to recreate the wines of their ancestors. The acronym of their surnames (Cilia-Occhipinti-Strano) was the beginning of the COS name.
 
In 2000 they began to use clay amphora, trialling a vessel that would not impart any flavour and would allow a true expression of the grapes and vineyard.
 
From this, Pithos was born - a Cerauolo di Vittoria fully fermented and aged in amphora. It was a moment which began a definitive move away from conventional production, a move that has over time evolved into the Cos style: wines of individuality that thwart fashion.

Today COS is credited by many with the revival of the district of Vittoria. Their wines have a passionate following worldwide and are poured in some of the best wine bars and restaurants around the globe.
Minimal use of sulphur, no filtration.
