Great Port in a Port Cellar

This cool cellar will be a great spot to enjoy port on a hot day. Great staff and great port to sample.

We chose Croft because they made the first and only Pink Portwine in the World. We thought thats pretty cool and turned up for a tour. The tour cost 10 EUR which wouldve been accurate, if the tour wouldnt only last 19 minutes. Lara or Laura (I dont remember the name exactly) was very friendly and passionate about the Port,... More

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.

A very beautiful property and the colors changing were a heavenly sight but FYI if it is raining it is cold and slippery. The port well I was not a huge fan of it but I would love to be there making it because it looks like great fun. Everyone was super nice it was just a very cold day... More

The entire group enjoyed our port tasting experience (except the 15 year old), It was really good of them to give us two glasses before the tour even started, I think the tour may have been less exciting without it. The port was lovely and we bought several bottles from their shop as it was very reasonably priced.

We had an excellent time here. We arrived 10minutes late and they started the tour without us so we were bummed at first, but then the tour guide came and apologized profusely for doing so and offered us a personalized tour for our group of 10! It was amazing and he was amazing ( don't remember his name but he... More

This Port house option was picked as part of a tour so hard to compare. The tasting and tour was €12 including 3 ports. The tour itself is informative if not a little dull. Beware small uphill walk to get to this one but nice view from terrace.

Can highly recommend a guided tour trough the cellars of Croft's. For only 5€ you get some history about Croft's and you get to try 3 Portwines. As I am German I am not a huge wine fan but I really enjoyed the tour and the wines. The staff is extremely knowledgable and lovely!

I went to Croft's in mid March and joined the celler tour. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative, expressed details of the wine production and history of the house. I did not know that the house belongs to the same group as Taylor and Fonceca, and actually the oldest one among those three (and may be among all... More
