Quinta do Crasto + Roquette&Cazes

STORY

Dating back to 1615, Quinta do Crasto is one of the most spectacularly- situated properties in the Douro, and among the first to break out on
its own. Owned and run by the Roquette family, Crasto has quickly established a worldwide reputation for the quality of both its Port and its red wines. Marrying tradition with the state-of-the art technologies, Quinta do Crasto still uses the food-treading method in old granite lagares. Located in the heart of the Cima Corgo, midway between Régua and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto is officially classified as a grade-A property. The estate covers 135 hectares of predominantly south-facing slopes extending from the banks of the river up to an altitude of nearly 600 metres. Consistent with the Roquette family’s ongoing commitment to quality and to the future, they have recently acquired Quinta da Cabreira in the Upper Douro – 150 hectares, 114 of which planted with new vines, an important complement to Quinta do Crasto ́s wine production.
