More info

Herdade do Rocim is a property located between Vidigueira and Cuba, in the Lower Alentejo, with about 120 hectares, among which 70 of vineyards and 10 of olive groves. The Vidigueira fault, a natural accident that marks the division between Alto and Baixo Alentejo, determines the reason for Vidigueira, the southernmost sub-region of Alentejo. The East-West escarpment, which is about 50 kilometers long, conditions Vidigueira's climate, making it, despite its southern location, one of the sub-regions with the temperate climate of the Alentejo
