The Fladgate Partnership consists of three venerable and distinguished Port houses: Croft (founded in 1588), Taylor Fladgate (1692) and Fonseca (1815). Each house is family owned and managed, maintaining its own identity, traditions, vineyards and distinctive house style, all in the pursuit of excellence.
Each house's vineyard holdings are significant. Together they comprise one of the most extensive and important estates in the Douro valley, including some of the regions' most famous vineyards. The group's dedication to the development of these unique properties places the Fladgate Partnership as an advocate of the region's finest traditions. And their attention to the best in both old and new winemaking practices make the Partnership a serious source of the highest quality Port wine.
