Herdade das Servas winery is in the Alentejo wine region in Portugal. It is a very quality conscious producer with some 200 hectares of vineyards. It is not far from the town of Estremoz. The winemaker, Tiago Garcia, has introduced many modern techniques but is also continuing old traditions. One example in the winery is the lagares. The grapes used to be trodden by foot but the modern lagares have pneumatic feet to increase extraction. Some of the wines are aged in oak barrels. They make a range of white, rosé and red wines.
