The family owner of the estate proudly live up to the motto coined by their forefather, Constantino de Almeida.
The HONORE project, which commemorates Quinta do Crasto’s 400-year history, pays homage to the men and women who, through the centuries, invested in cultivating the vineyards and creating unique authentic wines that have long been recognized as some of the finest worldwide.
A special wine was chosen to commemorate a unique date in the history of one of the oldest quintas in the Douro. HONORE is a very old tawny Port, over 100 years of age, from a very limited number of casks containing wines made before 1918, belonging to Constantino de Almeida’s private stock nurtured during three generations on the quinta.
A limited series of 400 bottles, the number of years the company is celebrating, was carefully blended for this special edition of HONORE Port. An outstanding wine beyond compare, a fair symbol to mark such a historic event.
The materials used for the HONORE package are superb – handcrafted silver, the purest crystal chosen by master craftsmen to guarantee the finest shine and transparency, noble oak and handsewn leather.
Each of the numbered 400 decanters was made of the most pure crystal, hand-blown by the master craftsmen of the world-famous Atlantis company of Portugal.400 unique items, exclusively designed and fashioned by this edition of HONORE Port.
Each flask bears a band of hand-engraved sterling silver, designed by Topázio, an eminent centuries-old company renowned for its work in this most precious material.
This highly luxurious edition is the product of the mastery and craftsmanship of a team of the most experienced Portuguese artisans who worked each individual piece with great care and detail, thus making it absolutely unique and exclusive.
Memory is the identity of a people…
HONORE is the gratitude of 400 years of History.
