Winery Notes:
Located in the Lower Alentejo region in the southern half of Portugal, between Vidigueira and Cuba, lies the estate of Herdade do Rocim. Catarina Vieira, daughter has been coordinaLng the development of the estate and she believes that Alentejo has the unique condiLons required to produce world-class wines. Since purchasing the estate, Caterina invested greatly in the land by completely regeneraLng the vineyards and building a new state of the art winery. The label Mariana was inspired by the picturesque love story between the nun Mariana Alcoforado from the Convent of Our Lady the ConcepLon in Beja and the French gallant soldier, Marquis of Chamilly, who was in Portugal with his troops by the end of the restoraLon war (17th Century). The love leEers wriEen by Mariana to her lover Chamilly were published in France in 1669 and became famous. Chamilly returned to his homeland, got married and was promoted to Marshall of France. Mariana lived unLl the age of 83 in seclusion and became known in history as Soror Mariana.

Easygoing, vivaciously fruity, and very fresh, the Mariana shows notes of bright red berries, elderflower, and melon. A great summer sipper on its own or with seafood, oysters, or pizza.
