PAXIS - the brandname
DFJ VINHOS born in 1998 to export to the UK where two of the DFJ partners (Dino and Fausto) have for more than two decades the most successful company importing Portuguese wines D&F.
Dino Ventura was one the most innovative sales and marketing person the UK wine sector ever saw. He look to all the details of the society to find ideas to apply and develop the Portuguese wine consumption.
One day he found one of its children playing in school a very traditional and physical UK game called Bulldog. During the game he heard children saying PAXIS as a way to express immunity from being caught.
PAXIS was so and in a sense a stage of ideal escape from the stress of the world where we could appreciate a great wine getting all the pleasure to our senses.
Because of that the PAXIS wines are always carefully selected to offer the best ratio price/ quality/ pleasure. Enjoy it!

Quinta de Porto Franco single estate
Destemming, pelicular maceration and pressing. Cooled to 15ºC, the must passes by a vacuum filter with perlites. The fermentation is achieved through active dry yeasts, the temperature being controlled between 16ºC and 18ºC.
The wine is aged in bottle a minimum of one month after bottling.
A fruited wine with notes of tropical fruits and citrus. In the tasting we feel also mineral notes adding more youth freshness to this powerful, intense and persistent white wine. João Paulo Martins; Vinhos de Portugal 2016; "It is intended for foreign markets and therefore internally is only available at DFJ Vinhos. Very fresh and aromatic, with green notes and citrus fruits well present, the wine has a very clear summer side. Good volume in the mouth, well integrated acidity here to patronize the wine, the fruit is in evidence here and works well as a whole."
It is an excellent aperitif and an exquisite complement to shrimps, seafood, soups, salads, fish dishes, sushi and all type of cheeses. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 8-10ºC.
