Quinta da Roêda
One of the most charming estates in the Douro is located in the village of Pinhão and produces exclusively Port wines from the Croft brand.
The Visitors Center occupies the old stables of Quinta da Roêda, which have been carefully restored in the traditional Douro style. This space offers a warm and spacious environment, ideal for tasting Croft's famous Port wines while discovering some unique local products in the store, such as Quinta da Roêda extra virgin olive oil.
Discover the secrets of the vineyard while taking a guided tour of the farm, stopping at points of interest along the way and enjoying the magnificent landscape and stunning views of the Douro River.
Quinta da Foz was built by D. Luís Borges Beleza de Andrade between 1796 and 1810, but it was in 1872 that this property was founded by the Cálem family after its acquisition. It was held by the Cálem family until the end of 2010.
Quinta da Foz is located in the heart of the Douro Wine Region, in the Cima Corgo sub-region, in the parish of Gouvães do Douro, Sabrosa, and shares on its banks the junction of the Pinhão River and the Douro River.
At Quinta da Foz, visitors have the opportunity to visit the facilities of the modern winemaking center and all the historical heritage related to the production of Port and DOC table wines.
