Valentine’s Week

Whether you are married, in a relationship, or single you are invited to take advantage of our special Valentine’s offer from 11st to 19th February!

Croft Pink is just the perfect drink for Valentine’s Day!

Show your love with a Pink Blossom a lovingly effervescent cocktail of Croft Pink, St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, sparkling wine and frozen berries. Or be stirred, be shaken, be adventurous and let loose with a Runaway – a spirited blend of Croft Pink, Calvados, Benedictine, lemon juice and Angostura. Spice it up with Pink Cashmere, an exotic blend of Croft Pink with apricot nectar and a gentle kick of black pepper. Get fresh and seductive with an Apple and Pink Julep – a really cool mix of Croft Pink, apple juice and sheaves of mint leaves over mountains of ice….

Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Croft’s visitors’ centre!

What are you doing for #PortDay on the 27th January?

There are many quality fortified and dessert wines, but true Port only comes from the Port appellation in Portugal, one of the world’s oldest regulated and demarcated wine region. Unfortunately, today the Port name is misused on wine bottles across the world and particularly in the United States. Wines produced not from the grapes grown in the Douro Valley are misleading consumers to believe it is Port by improperly putting the name on its label.

January 27 will be “Port Day.” The inaugural event encourages the celebration of this truly unique wine that only comes from Portugal. Consumers from around the world are encouraged to participate in the celebration of this authentic wine and raise awareness about the need to protect the Port name.

Join in #PortDay at Croft’s wine lodges where we will have a special raffle – you can win a very interesting and useful book.

And you? What are you doing for #PortDay?

And they all said “cheese”!

Cheese day at Croft’s was an overwhelming success with hundreds of visitors enjoying delicious cheeses from the “Beira Baixa DOP”.

For most it was a surprise, but everyone commented on the quality of the product.

Unfortunately the Portuguese cheeses have not yet achieved the recognition they deserve, but we are sure that the lucky ones who had the opportunity to visit Croft will not forget the unique flavors of “Beira Baixa” cheeses and (of course) our Ports.

We really appreciate the efforts of Mr. António Feliciano, a tireless ambassador of Portuguese cheeses! http://www.saboresidanha.com/

And yes, we are already preparing the second edition of “Cheese day” – so, stay tuned and say cheese!
