Herdade do Rocim is mainly the result of a desire and a dream.“God wishes, Man dreams, the Work is born” is Fernando Pessoa´s poetic expression which best helps us to understand the circunstances in which the idea arose and the work has been created. This is the path we wish to take. The fragility of our human condition enables us to dare to believe that, to really achieve the current reality known as Herdade do Rocim, we were inspired by a certain God and driven by a certain dream.
Herdade do Rocim is an estate located between Vidigueira and Cuba, in the Lower Alentejo, with a size of 120 hectares, 70 of which are vineyards and 10 of olive trees. The Vidigueira fault, a natural landmark which marks the border between the Upper and Lower Alentejo, determines the raison d´être of Vidigueira, the southernmost wine-producing sub-region in the Alentejo. The East-West facing escarpment, of around 50 kilometers in length, defines the climate of Vidigueira, and, despite its deep-lying southern location, makes it one of the most temperate sub-regions in the Alentejo.
At Herdade do Rocim we have always respected the natural vocation of the region´s terroir, producing fresh, elegant and mineral wines.
