Croft was funded over four hundred years ago. The first signs of activity date back to the16th century when the company was established by Henry Thompson, in the year of 1588. The Croft family joined the business in 1736 and played a prominent role in the Port Wine industry, leading Croft to the prime position that still holds today.

In Detail

Croft reputation as a producer of Vintage Port wine is largely due to the fact of being the owner of Quinta da Roêda (one of the best properties in the Douro Valley) and its legendary wines. The Vintage Croft 1945 wine is still considered as one of the best of that historic year.

With over four hundred centuries of history, Croft keeps innovating and launched in 2008, the Croft PINK - the first pink Port wine in the world!

The Croft cellars are open all year and offer one of the most genuine and traditional tours to the Port wine world. You can have tastings and many other experiences, which stand out due to their educational nature that shows the versatility of Port wine.

"Loved the Croft's Cave tour. Staff were fantastic and our tour guide (sorry we don't know his name!) was so passionate and taught us so much in a short space of time. We loved our experience! We felt very welcome and the Port wines that we were served were delicious! We had a blind taste test at the end and it was so much fun! Thank you Crofts!"

Una Bodega de gran interés que produce algunos de los mejores vinos de Oporto que conozco. Monumental y con más de cuatro siglos. Hoy en día, como en el pasado, sigue siendo un espíritu pionero, sin dejar de crear estilos innovadores, tales como Croft Rosa. Esto sí que és vida, beber buen vino.

"Very well informed tour, and good information about the tasting of the port wine. We expected the tour to be longer than it was, but this is not a problem"

"A must do in Porto ! The main lounge is very authentic and cosy. The Porto are very tasteful. Then you'll visit the cave where huge gallons of Porto are stored and aged. The guide was very instructive and kind. Will definitely come back if in Porto again."
