Join us at casa VG on Wednesday 4th September 2024 for a special shop floor tasting with Alentejo producer, Herdade do Rocim.

Herdade do Rocim is an estate located between Vidigueira and Cuba, in the Lower Alentejo with 70 hectares under vine. Since its inception in 2000, Herdade do Rocim has invested heavily in the vineyards, replanting vines and introducing new varieties to the region. They cultivate the vineyard sustainably and are associated with the Sustainable Program of the Alentejo Viticulture. They are pioneers in ‘amphora wines’, following the ancient traditions of vinification in pots known as ‘Talha’. Minimal intervention is used in the cellar to produce fresh, elegant and mineral wines. In 2018, Herdade do Rocim was awarded Best Wine Producer by Revista de Vinhos.

This tasting will be led by David Rego, the estate’s export director, in collaboration with team Vino.

Please note, this is not a formal, sit down tasting. It will be a fun, casual tasting on our shop floor in walk-around style with decent pours! There are a few stools to perch on, of course and we’ll have some nibbles in the way of charcuterie boards to keep your palate nice and awake!
