The Winery

Herdade do Rocim

Herdade do Rocim

The Herdade do Rocim is mainly the result of a desire and a dream. "God wants, Man dreams, the Work is born" is the poetic expression of Fernando Pessoa that can best help to understand the circumstances in which the idea and the constructed work came about. This is the path we wish to pursue. In the fragility of our human condition, we dare to think that, in fact, in order to reach the reality that is today the Estate of the Rocim, some God inspired us and some dream moved us.
