The Croft cellars are open for tours all year around, offering one of the most genuine and traditional visits to the world of Port wine.
The “Croft experience” includes a visit to the ageing cellars and a tasting of three special Port wines: Croft Pink, Reserve and Tawny 10 years. Bookings for the Croft experience are only required for groups. If this is not your case, then you just simply need to turn up as there are no schedules or pre-defined languages and each tour starts every 40 minutes.
On sunny days our terrace is the perfect place for a refreshing and irreverent PINK – the first rosé Port wine in the world, created by Croft in 2008. Alternatively, during the winter months, the warmth of our fireplace together with the charm of the room will invite you to enjoy the Port wine’s unique flavours in total relaxation. In order for you to find this experience the most comfortable possible, please feel free to share your photos or your opinion with friends because our Visitors’ Centre offers you free Wi-Fi connexion.
It is possible to book other experiences at the Croft Cellars, including those that point out the Port wine’s educational side and reveal its versatility.
Do not miss: exquisite Port wine tastings by the glass perfectly paired with delicious side dishes are available daily.

The Visitors’ Centre also organizes activities, subject to previous booking, such as The art of the wine taster (where the group is challenged to create a tawny Port), the program To drink a tale and to listen to a Port (where traditional tales are associated to a Port wine tasting) or even Fado, Serra cheese and Vintage Croft (where three Portuguese elements come together in a perfect pairing).
