About the winery
Located on the right bank of the Douro River, between the towns of Régua and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto is a property of 135 hectares, 75 of which are planted with vines. Nestled on a privileged location in the Douro Demarcated Region, Quinta do Crasto has belonged to the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century and like all the great properties of the Douro it dates back to ancient times - the name “Crasto” is derived from the Latin word “castrum”, which means “Roman fort”. The family also has two other properties: Quinta do Querindelo, with 10 hectares of old vines, and Quinta da Cabreira, in the Upper Douro, with 114 hectares of vines. Quinta do Crasto produces a full range of products, from Douro white and red wines and Port wines to extra virgin olive oil.

History & Geography
The first known references to Quinta do Crasto can be traced back to 1615. In 1918, Quinta do Crasto was purchased by Constantino de Almeida, founder of the famous Constantino Port house. Following his death in 1923, his son, Fernando de Almeida, continued to run the Quinta, producing stellar Port wines. In 1981, Fernando de Almeida’s daughter, Leonor Roquette, and her husband, Jorge Roquette, assumed majority ownership and management of the estate. With the help of their sons, Miguel and Tomás, they began the process of remodelling and expanding the vineyards and facilities to enable the production of top quality Port and Douro wines. Quinta do Crasto has now reclaimed its rightful status as one of the great family estates of the Douro region.
