Low yielding 60 to 70 year old vines are grown in clay soils with 'Coios', a Spanish term for the rounded stones, which gave this wine its name. These old vines have deep root systems which nourish the vines imparting complex flavours in the resulting wine. Planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare, the vines are grown at an altitude of 550 to 590 metres above sea level. The cool nights extends the ripening period, allowing the grapes to develop rich varietal characteristics while retaining balancing acidity. The grapes are manually harvested when they have reached optimum maturity.

Winemaker Xose Lois Sebio has produced this stunning eponymous collection of wines as a result of a personal quest: to find wines with unique personalities from more risky processing zones and with a very marked identity. This original and quirky range is made from high-quality grapes in areas that are often neglected or simply different; vineyards that are difficult to farm due to the high costs of conventional viticulture. Away from fashions and conventions, the sole intention is to respect and express the soil, variety, and area; producing wines with soul and personality. The wines are vinified with minimal intervention and low sulfur. These are collectible wines for lovers of the authentic and different.
