Herdade do Rocim in the Press

Southern Portugal's Herdade do Rocim has been receiving notice from several different publications as they continue their upward trend of producing quality indigenous wines from Alentejo and beyond. The blog Bigger Than Your Head recently featured the Olho de Mocho Reserva Branco 2014 as their wine of the day, and Wine and Spirits Magazine singled out three of their wines as representing the Best of Portugal.

Located in the Lower Alentejo region in the southern half of Portugal, between Vidigueira and Cuba, lies the estate of Herdade do Rocim. Catarina Vieira has been in charge of the development of the estate and she believes that Alentejo has the unique conditions required to produce world-class wines. Joining her as General Manager of the estate is Pedro Ribiero. He contributes to the winemaking decisions, as well as running the sales and business affairs of the estate. Since purchasing the estate, Caterina and Pedro have invested greatly in the land by completely regenerating the vineyards and building a new state of the art winery. They believe that Rocim has great potential for producing high quality wines with worldwide recognition and have created a project that gives value not only to Alentejo, but to Portugal as a whole
