The house of Croft was founded over 300 years ago. Indeed, 1588 is the earliest evidence of the company being involved in Port shipments.
By 1827, Croft & Co. had become the fourth largest Port wine shipper. One hundred years later, they were occupying the number one position. The house of Croft enjoys a major reputation for its Vintage ports in particular and acquired the famed Quinta de Roeda in 1875.
