Wine's amazing. Period. The tour was actually interesting (surprisingly for me too, although I usually don't like tours), there is a lot to find about this British invention (yes!) Worth it!

Great set up and interesting tour and tasting. The audio tour went on a bit at times and is getting a bit outdated but worth a look around.

Dear sralphs, Thank you for your positive feedback on your visit to the Croft cellars. Perhaps you confused your visit to our cellars, as our cellars are guided by a tour guide. Nonetheless, thank you for your feedback. All the best, Croft Port

We walked down the hill from Taylor's to Croft, which has the same ownership. Croft is more rustic than Taylor's. Their tasting was good, including the pink port that they introduced a decade ago. Their wines are good and the service also good.

This is a nice, short walk from our apartment, and because it's ever so slightly tucked behind other buildings seems to be a little quieter than other Port Cellars. We'll see when tourists season kicks in in June. The tour is relatively short, but provides...More

Hi Steve, I remember there is parking a place right in front Croft Port wine Lodge. But it's a little difficult to find the place. We got there by taxi.
