Herdade do Rocim

The “Herdade do Rocim” Alicante Bouschet is a genuine wine, produced from the passion of generations who have always had the greatest respect and tenderness for the land. It is made from the Alicante Bouschet grape variety, carefully foot trodden in a traditional stone lagar. Aged in French oak vats.

Located between Vidigueira and Cuba in the Lower Alentejo, Herdade do Rocim has around 70 hectares of vineyards, with 53 dedicated to red grape varieties and the remaining 17 to white grape varieties. Characterized by clay-sandy and sandy soils, Herdade do Rocim aims for grape production of high quality. The Rocim Winery, a key element of the project, combines wine production with the aesthetic quality of its architecture, serving as a marketing and promotional tool, qualifying the region.

Vinification: Manual harvest in 12 kg crates. In the winery, the grapes undergo a careful selection on a vibrating sorting table, then destemmed with a light crushing. Fermentation in a stone lagar with foot treading. Aging in French oak barrels for 12 months. The wine aged in bottle for a period of 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.
