Belle Ambiance Pinot Grigio 2015Head outdoors and sip this wine as you revel in the sunset with a spring salad and grilled halibut. WINEMAKING Fruit for the Belle Ambiance Pinot Grigio was harvested in the cool hours of the night, delivered to the winery and then immediately pressed into fermenters. A slow, low-temperature fermentation on very low grape solids and aging that took place entirely in stainless steel allowed us to capture all of the delicate fruit and floral aromas that a Pinot Grigio can deliver. TASTING NOTES Delicate floral aromas of lemon blossom, honeysuckle, and jasmine are accented by notes of white peach and juicy pineapple that fram core flavors of sweet honeydew melon, white nectarine and tart lemon. This medium-bodied wine is bright and crisp with a tangy,lingering finish.

La Bastarda Pinot Grigio 2016WINEMAKING It’s the vinification technique that gives the wine its zesty personality. The grapes are harvested at the perfect moment when they’re ripe and fruity but before they’ve become too sweet and lost their natural acidity. After the grapes are whisked to the winery, they’re gently pressed and the juice goes into stainless steel tanks where the fermentation proceeds under closely controlled temperatures that don’t exceed 55 degrees F. That safeguards the fruity flavors and aromas in the finished wine. TASTING NOTES Light straw yellow in color with a greenish tinge. The wine has a rich nose, with apple, pear and tropical fruit notes. On the palate it is fresh with lively acidity and a crisp finish.

Paxis Red Blend 2012Mr. Dino Ventura, one of DFJ's founders ("D), was one of the most innovative sales and marketing men the UK wine sector ever saw. He looked at all aspects of society to find ideas to apply to promoting Portuguese wine. One day he was watching one of his children playing 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 struck him as an ideal way of expressing those times when we escape from the stress of the world and can appreciate the pleasure a great wine can give. Because of that, the Paxis wines are always carefully selected to offer a great ratio price/quality/pleasure. Enjoy!
