The first known records referring to Quinta do Crasto and its wine production date back to 1615, and it was later included in the first Feitoria, together with the most important Quintas in the Douro. Quinta do Crasto was acquired by Constantino de Almeida, founder of the Constantino brand and wine house, which was notable for the production and export of Port Wine and also Brandy, and whose advertising slogan “Constantino’s fame comes from afar” until today.
In 1981, Leonor Roquette, daughter of Fernando Moreira d’Almeida, and her husband Jorge Roquette took over the majority of the capital and management of the property and, with the help of their children, began the process of remodeling and extending the vineyards, as well as the project for the production of Douro Wines with Controlled Denomination of Origin (DOC), for which Quinta do Crasto is widely known, nationally and internationally. This is thus the fourth generation of the family at the head of the management of this emblematic farm that seduces everyone with the quality it insists on printing on all its products.
