Producer Profile

COS Azienda Agricola

COS Winery stands as a beacon of Sicilian viticulture's revival, catalyzing the island's emergence onto the global wine stage. Founded in 1980 by Giambattista Cilia, Cirino Strano, and Giusto Occhipinti, COS embarked on a journey that revitalized Sicily's winemaking tradition amid an era dominated by bulk production. Originating from an impromptu experiment with grapes from Occhipinti's father, COS evolved into a pioneering force in the Cerasuolo di Vittoria region, ultimately elevating it to Sicily's sole DOCG designation in 2005. The winery's ethos of experimentation birthed a signature style—natural, unadulterated wines that epitomize terroir expression. Embracing organic and biodynamic farming, COS nurtures its estate grapes with meticulous care.
