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!

A delicious wine. Although the palate is quite concentrated, it presents a surprisingly gentle nature. This wine is medium-bodied and brimming with aromas of black cherries, raspberries and the spicy notes. The finish is elegant and persistent.
Excellent if taken with meals or alone, can accompany any dish well seasoned, for example, baked, barbecue, cheese-based dishes, pasta and vegetarian dishes. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 16-18ºC.
