Croft Pink port is redefining port drinking by providing a light, crisp, fruity and flavorful alternative to the usually sweet dessert wine. In fact, Croft Pink is an aperitif. It can be served on its own (over ice) or in a variety of tasty, simple or sophisticated cocktails.

Winemaker David Guimaraens used a slow fermentation process, one that is twice as long as the traditional fermentation method for standard port and white port-making technology to produce the rosé-style Croft Pink port.

Croft Pink port achieves a light ruby color from gentle contact with the skins of traditional port grapes. At $17 a bottle Croft Pink port is also an inexpensive alternative to both other aperitifs and dessert wines.
