Herdade do Rocim is one of the emerging wine producers in the Alentejo region, it is between Cuba and Vidigueira that we combine ancestral techniques with modern processes of production of carved wine, with the greatest respect for the terroir and the raw material that results in wines extraordinary freshness. Herdade do Rocim is a meeting point for technologies and affections where reason, emotion, dedication and knowledge are mixed.
The Romans spread the vineyards in Alentejo, ancient Lusitania, over two thousand years ago. In Vidigueira, the legacy of the production of amphora wines remained, which led many producers to improve their techniques and raise the value of amphora wines to a level not seen before.
Herdade do Rocim is one of these producers, and pioneered the organization of the first event dedicated to these wines in 2018, the "Amphora Wine Day",
we have developed a wine tourism experience dedicated exclusively to carved wines and their production.
For this, we selected some partners between Vila Alva and Vila de Frades and designed this experience that gives participants the opportunity to learn about the history of these wines, the specificity of Vidigueira's terroir, the production methods and, of course, the tasting of wines with differentiated profiles and native grape varieties.
The Amphora Wine Tour is, therefore, a one-day experience to explore Vidigueira's Via Vitis Romana, discovering the amphora wines of the region.
Highlights of the Tour:
- Visit, tasting and lunch at Herdade do Rocim, paired with Herdade do Rocim amphora wines;
- Visit and tasting at two local partner producers.
