Placed on the right bank of the Douro river, between Régua and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto is a property with a prime location in the Douro Region.
Quinta do Crasto is owned by the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century. Quinta do Crasto has always been highly sought after by portuguese and international visitors, who are attracted by the history of the estate, the quality of the wines and the unique landscape. The first known references to Quinta do Crasto can be traced back to 1615, long before the Douro Valley became the world’s first demarcated wine region in 1756. The property is a historic one and is recorded as having been awarded “feitoria” status (the highest vineyard classification of the time) in 1761. The original demarcation was marked with a series of granite markers. One of these markers, called “marco pombalino”, dating back to 1758, is still visible at the Quinta.
