Herdade do Rocim

Climate: Typically mediterranean and set in the sub-region of Vidigueira, where the climatic conditions are the most temperate of Alentejo and provide an excellent microclimate for the production of quality wines. Soil: Poor land, predominantly of granite and schist. Great pedological potential for the cultivation of vines and for obtaining quality wines. Wine Varieties: The varieties Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez are trellised in a vertical shoot position and
the Touriga Nacional in LYS, a multi-spaced system allowing for greater canopy shade. The rows have an east/west orientation with the grape varieties at different exposures: Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez (west) and Touriga Nacional (east). Vinification: Manual harvest into 12 kg boxes. In the winery, the grapes underwent careful selection on a vibrating sorting table before destemming with a slight crushing of the berries. After 48 hours of pre-fermentation cold maceration, fermentation took place in french oak vats and in open fermenter lagares at a controlled temperature of around 24ºC for a period of 11 days. The wine aged in french oak barrels, for a period of 10 months. After bottling, the wine aged in bottle for six months.

Herdade do Rocim

Herdade do Rocim is a property located between Vidigueira and Cuba, in Baixo Alentejo, with about 120 hectares, including 70 hectares of vineyards and 10 hectares of olive groves. Acquired in 2000 by Movicortes, S.A., in the following years there was restructuring and qualification work, consummated with the planting of most of the vineyard that today constitutes the Herdade do Rocim. This process of implantation was made according to specific criteria that allow the production of high quality grapes. The winery is a structuring element of the Herdade do Rocim project, which combines wine production with the aesthetic quality of its architecture and works as a promotional element for the requalification of the region. At Herdade do Rocim all efforts go in the direction of doing well, always improving and with a constant concern for the quality of the wine.
