Herdade do Rocim in Wine Enthusiast

Stalwart Portuguese winery Herdade do Rocim is known for producing a wide range of bottlings, fully expressing the unique terroir of their Alentejo estate (and their Vale de Mata property in Lisboa). Roger Voss, writing for the Wine Enthusiast, has provided reviews for the most recent vintages, and the results are great! With multiple 90+ point scores, Rocim continues to raise their game, producing an in-depth portrait of their land and what it can yield.

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, daughter has been coordinating the development of the estate and she believes that Alentejo has the unique conditions required to produce world-class wines. Since purchasing the estate, Caterina invested greatly in the land by completely regenerating the vineyards and building a new state of the art winery. She believes that Rocim has great potential for producing high quality wines with worldwide recognition, and has hopes of expanding the brand under the umbrella of quality for the region. She has created a project that gives value not only to Alentejo, but to Portugal as a whole.
