Quinta do Crasto is located on the right bank of the river Douro, halfway between Régua and Pinhão. The quinta covers 130 hectares, of which 70 are planted with grade “A” vineyards. Sitting on a privileged location in the Douro Demarcated Region, Quinta do Crasto has been in the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century. Like other great Douro quintas, its origins lie in ancient times (the name CRASTO comes from the Latin word castrum, a Roman fort). References to Quinta do Crasto date as far back as the early seventeenth century, long before the Douro became the world’s first demarcated wine region in 1756. Large investments were made over the last years to restructure the vineyards and install modern winery equipment, guaranteeing the production of high quality table wines, such as Crasto Douro Red, Quinta do Crasto Douro Reserva Old Vines, single variety wines (100 % Touriga Nacional and 100% Tinta Roriz) and single vineyard wines (Vinha da Ponte and Vinha Maria Teresa), as well Read more »

Quinta do Crasto on Snooth

  • Crasto 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Don't not let the modesty of this entry fool you: here is a wine with wonderful berry and plum nose with a savage nature that compels and does not alienate. The palate is soft, luscious and just a teeny bit sweet with blackberry, wild huckleberry and other flavors of a wilder state. Balanced, full with a hint of bitters, this wine is a steal....

  • Quinta Do Crasto Red Blend Douro 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Aged in 100% new French oak Tight, cocoa, cafe au lait and nutty almost almond toned aromas greet the nose along with deep, violet laced plummy fruit. Rather broad shouldered and structured in the mouth with slightly angular tannins and good acidity, this is a bit tight and blocky in the mouth,turning tough and a bit chewy on the modest finish. ...
