Arianna Occhipinti

I started making my own wine in 2004, right after I'd graduated from university. Everything started with my uncle (note: Giusto Occhipinti, the O of the COS wines) when I was 16; he invited me to come help him out at Vinitaly, and I thought to myself: "I can miss 4 days of school!", so I quickly agreed to come with him.

I knew nothing about wine, but it was a fantastic experience. I met a lot of people and was immediately drawn to it. I decided to study it, and while I was in university, I started learning more about agricultural and oenological practices, which ultimately led me to focus on natural winemaking.
