Alentejo, Portugal

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 has 70 hectares of vineyards, of which 53 hectares are for the production of red grape varieties and 17 hectares of white grape varieties.

All the viticulture operations at Herdade do Rocim are carried out manually, always respecting the terroir and sustainability principles, from the winter pruning through interventions in green until the harvest, where the human hand has a key role.

At the eonology department of Herdade do Rocim, all the wine making processes are aimed at the maximum respect for the terroir. Only wild yeasts are used in the making of the monovarietal or field blend wines.
