  • The earliest evidence of the firm's activity as a Port shipper dates from 1588. The company took its present name in 1736 when it was joined by John Croft, a member of an old and distinguished family of Yorkshire wine merchants. It is now owned and run by descendants of two old Port wine families, the Yeatman's and Fladgate's. The prestige that the brand Croft and its wines have is due in no small measure to its ownership of one of the finest estates of the Douro Valley, the famous Quinta da Roêda. Available services: - Oriented visit and wine tastings - Tasting of Port Wine and Croft Pink with chocolates - Opening of Croft Vintage Port with tongs - Conducted lesson in tasting of Port and chocolate pairing - Special Programs (Fado, "Serra" Cheese and Vintage Croft) - Port Wine Workshops
