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.
