Wine of the Week - Rocim Amphora Branco

This week our featured wine comes from the southern part of Portugal - Herdade do Rocim's Amphora Branco.

2,000 years ago the Romans introduced amphora winemaking to the Alentejo region of Portugal, specifically the small southern wine region of Vidigueira. Winemaking with amphora, or talhas as they are called in Portugal, is rarely commercially viable today. But estates such as Herdade do Rocim are rediscovering this ancient tradition with much success. To read more about this fascinating method of winemaking, click here.
