http://www.cosvittoria.it COS, Yesterday, today. They began to produce for pleasure, ended to create a company: one of the most characterized of the Sicily. They were schoolfriends, Giambattista Cilia called Titta, Giusto Occhipinti and Pinuccia Strano, three guys of Vittoria (RG). Afterwards Titta and Giusto became architects, while Giuseppina Strano chose to be a social worker. In 1980, the passion for the vineyards, carried them to found a farm called COS (the initials of their surnames). They rented the parents's lands and began to play. Harvesting, pressing grapes (by foot), making wine, they produced 20 hectoliters of wine, which although was an amateur product, it was of great quality. Charmed for the enterprise, they have invested a lot in the wine cellar, equipping it of modern technologies: today their wines ferment with controlled temperature and age in barrique. Among the three protagonists who gave life to the adventure, today, two architects, Giusto and Giambattista, carry the plan ahead and after 23 years they have placed an other important dowel: the resctructure of a majestic residence, become the country house center of COS.

  • Cos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Tried this wine at Urbane Restaurant in Brisbane and it was fabulous. Went really well with the duck. We are keen to get some of this for home use now. In relation to Urbane, they do a matching wine with their menus, however you will be caught out as they only do half pours or less and charge $12-15 per glass which equates to over $120-150 for a...

  • Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More

  • If I were anywhere near New York on the 29th I'd be going to this event. Great wine, interesting winemakers, and lots of old posters, art nouveau or otherwise.
