  • Worth the short hill hike. A surprisingly personal cellar tour, with a lovely local guide, filled with her own stories, and practical tips for best enjoying the delicious drink. We paid 14€ for tour and three tastings, enjoyed on their sunny secluded terrace with views of the Douro. Highly recommend.
  • Great tour & tasting. The guide was charming and we ended up leaving with a bottle of Rose for the evening. All of the Port we tried at Croft was very good and paired well with bread & ham.
