  • My friend and I were treated so well at Croft! We had a terrific Port tasting by the fire place and the staff were so helpful. A little less pretentious than other places. 
  • We are in Gaia at Croft, but this review is about the vineyard. We have more than 6 wineries in the Douro visited and this was by far the worst. Despite the beautiful location lay that at the following:-you could only do a tour with tasting. One of us does not drink and had to pay € 20 for the tour. -the tour has Lasted 10 min and max was only a walk to a part of the vines with a short story. On questions came short and sometimes vague answers. -no choice in type of tasting. -they pretend to be a real vintage port wine House and there good at. At the tasting was only 1 vintage and that was not a very best (2012). For that amount, I expect to be better tasting. All in all very disappointing and I recommend them to look at houses as symington.

  • Traditional port wine cellars offers the samples, even pink port "Croft pink". Price will be charged when making a purchase. Great atmosphere in the Interior.
