Years of history

  • Two clay amphorae, still on display today at Herdade das Servas, are crafted to hold the wine produced by the family. Tomé Francisco, the 13th great-grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira, holds the perpetual lease of a vineyard in the suburbs of Vila Viçosa. Aside from this one, at this time he possessed three other vineyards.

  • Manuel Rodrigues Proença, the 8th great-grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira and a notable vintner, paid taxes on his possession of four vineyards, a winery and a considerable production output.

  • Manuel Gonçalves Tavares, the 9th great-grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira and one of the largest producers of wine in the village of Borba, is one of five representatives from the municipality who send a petition to the King to safeguard the protection, valuation and quality of Borba wine.

  • João Martins Frade, the 7th great-grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira, had stored 2,375.15 almudes (an obsolete Portuguese unit of measurement) from the previous year’s wine production. These numbers made him one of the largest producers in the municipality of Estremoz.

  • In the Probate Inventory Certificate of Manuel Martins Frade, the 6th great-grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira, we identify four vineyards, a winery, nineteen amphorae and a vast array of other wine making material. This estate was fully distributed amongst his children.

  • Death of Manuel Ramos Ramalho, the 5th great-grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira. A great landowner, worker, and wine producer, this ancestor would leave behind twenty-nine amphorae in his cellars (with over 400 almudes of wine inside) and countless vineyards located in the parishes of Arcos and Glória (Estremoz).

  • Manuel Joaquim Mira, grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira, was the first in the Serrano Mira family to bottle wine.

  • Barnabé Ramalho, great-grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira, was one of the founders (and the first president) of one of the largest Co-operative Wineries in the Alentejo. His cousin, José João Barroso Jr., son of José João Barroso (also a great-grandfather of Carlos and Luís) was also a founding member.

  • Manuel Joaquim Mira, grandfather of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira, decides to merge his firm with that of another wine making family, giving rise to the Sociedade de Vinhos de Borba. Retiring shortly afterwards, it would be his sons (Francisco José Mira and his brother, the father and uncle, respectively, of Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira) who would carry on with the business.

  • The “Herdade das Servas” project is officially founded by brothers Carlos and Luís Serrano Mira.
