Herdade das Servas

Viticulture: Vines planted in red soils derived from brown or crystalline limestone, with spots of schist, benefiting from a Mediterranean climate with high temperature variations and hot, dry summers. After necessary green interventions during the vegetative cycle, the grapes were manually harvested, grape by grape, and transported to the winery in crates.

Vinification: After reception by grape variety, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, followed by pre-fermentation maceration. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks and lagares with temperature control.

Aging: Once malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine partially aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels of 2nd and 3rd year. After bottling, it rested in the bottle for 2 months in our cellar. To preserve all its qualities, this wine was not stabilized and may naturally create sediment.

Longevity: Between 5 and 15 years, if stored in a cool, dark place with the bottle laid down.

Serve with red meats, game, intense cheeses, and cured meats. Decanting is advised.

Winemaking: Luís Serrano Mira.

Viticulture: Carlos Serrano Mira.

Serrano Mira

Serrano Mira is the surname resulting from the union of two families who have been producing wine in Alentejo for 13 generations. Serrano Mira is also the name of the wine group led by Luis Serrano Mira, which includes the Alentejo estate Herdade das Servas and Casa da Tapada in the Vinhos Verdes region.

Luis Serrano Mira was born into a family of producers with a strong connection to rural property and wine. He grew up observing their practices and proudly paying attention to the teachings passed down by great-grandparents, grandparents, and parents. From an early age, he became aware that nothing is achieved without hard work and sacrifice. He believes that dedication and commitment are key factors for the quality and consistency of a project, reaching their highest potential when there is a symbiosis between inherited knowledge and innovations introduced in the present. He considers this to be the mark of his time and the legacy he is leaving for future generations.

The Serrano Mira family’s connection to this universe dates back to the year 1667, as evidenced by two amphorae that have been passed down from generation to generation. This heritage, upon reaching the hands of Luis Serrano Mira, inspired him to conduct an exhaustive historical survey, portrayed and documented in the book “The History of Vine and Wine in Alentejo – Legacy of a Family Producing Since 1667.” These two wine vessels have eight-pointed stars engraved on them, now used in the Serrano Mira logo, symbolizing good fortune, regeneration, abundance, and protection of crops, as well as truth and hope.
