The Croft family can be traced back 700 years, and first became involved with Port wine shipping through their connection with a distinguished family of merchants, the Thompsons of York, through marriage. A great-grandchild of this union, John Croft, was born in 1732 and was to become the most famous personality in the house. In 1788, his treatise on the wines of Portugal was published, an event that placed the Croft family at the forefront of the British community based in Oporto. Croft today is part of the Fladgate Partnership, made up of three of the most historic and highly regarded Porto houses: Taylor Fladgate, Fonseca, and Croft. Their Portos are produced with the attention to quality that is the standard to which all other Port wine houses aspire. It is a family-run company with the present members representing the eighth generation of the Yeatman family, originally from the Port house of Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman, now with more than 300 years of history.
What The Critics Say
"A soft, mellow style that veers on the sweet side, but has a good tang from its wood aging. The Port has a touch of orange peel, just a hint of spirit and soft final tannins."
"Vivid tawny-red colour. Nose of ripe mellow fruit with aromas of figs and prunes set off by an attractive woody and spicy character. Smooth and round on the palate, full of rich jammy flavours."
