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 as top port wine categories such as Late Bottled Vintage and Vintage Port. While using state-of-the-art vinification technology, the quinta has always retained its traditional foot treading method in granite tanks, called “lagares”. All the investments made in the past combined with the tradition and passion that is put into the wine making, has given Quinta do Crasto a prominent name in wine market scene, at home and abroad.
This visit is going to be included in the documentary that is been filmed and produced by Zev Robinson – Life On The Douro.
Casting of this episode: Tomas Roquette, Manuel Lobo de Vasconcellos, Roy Hersh, Mario Ferreira, Sandy Becker, Ruth Becker, Luiz Alberto and, of course, the wonderful Douro Valley and its incredible wines.
I tried to capture with these pictures the beauty of the property and a little bit of the incredible hospitality of the Roquette Family.
We had a great time that day...
