Wine of the Week - Herdade do Rocim Vinho Verde 'Goivo'

Vinho Verde is a quintessential summer wine for good reason. Light bright, slightly spritzy, and low in alcohol, it's the perfect fit for hot weather. The Herdade do Rocim Vinho Verde 'Goivo' is made from the indigenous grapes Lourejo, Trajadura, and Arinto. Bright lime along with some slightly rounder notes of peach as well as a light minerality. Drink when you need pure refreshment.

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.
