OUR HISTORY

In 1936, this house was bequeathed by will of the original owner José Manuel da Silva to our grandfather Mariano, his nephew and godson. On December 25, 1937, our grandparents Esmeralda and Mariano got married, and have made this house their family home ever since.

This winery operated until Adega Cooperativa de Borba came into operation in 1957. Adega Cooperativa de Borba was founded in 1955 and had our grandfather Mariano as a founding partner.

Respect for our family, love for Borba, respect for the people of this land and for the intangible heritage that was passed on to us were the great driving force for this project.

Installations

The Museum is located on the ground floor of this house dating from the 19th century, where we have the wine cellar with 46 original clay pots, the vinegar cellar, the courtyard, the old stable and the well. In the past, wine, vinegar and brandy were made here. On the upper floor of the house is the family’s living space.

THE MUSEUM

This is a house with a past, from our past, but to which we wanted to give a future, a future with history that only gains the dimension it deserves when and if shared with everyone.

We want you to feel and imagine the smells, conversations and work that went through this winery every day. The journey is a guide through new technologies!

Our challenge is to Innovate with Tradition! Tradition of wine production in carved wood, an ancestral technique that dates back to Roman times and which Alentejo has never lost. Innovation using multimedia: your cell phone or tablet will be the window to a reality, which although old, returns to the future and hides in this space, which was and is a wine cellar.

The museum’s objective is to make everyone who visits us aware of the characteristic aspects of winemaking, namely carved wine, from a regional historical and cultural perspective through multimedia content and digital interactions.

The entire museum is equipped with digital equipment, with one of the rooms entirely dedicated to multimedia, where it is possible to watch a film about the process of producing carved wine, the history of Borba, local traditions and family history.

The presence of interactive content is one of the museum’s main attractions and differentiating features.

At the end of the visit, you can enjoy a space for tasting wines, cheeses and sausages or simply enjoy the atmosphere of the patio, in the shade of a lemon tree with the smell of mint.

OFFERS / SERVICES

The configuration of the museum space allows for versatile use, making it possible to hold business and personal events, such as meetings, workshops, wine tastings, concerts, birthday parties, Educational Services/Schools, among others.
