Included in Wine Enthusiast’s list of 10 Best Buys for 10 years in a row, DFJ Wines began in 1998 in Portugal by Jose Neiva Correia based on his belief that the best grapes come from respect for the vine and its environment. Since then, DFJ’s wines have been recognized around the world with thousands of prestigious awards, including the #1 Best Buy of 2012 in Wine Enthusiast magazine, and twice for Red Wine of the Year at IWC (London).
Winemaker: José Neiva Correia
Descending from generations dedicated to the art of viniculture, both on his father’s and his mother’s sides, José Neiva Correia followed in his family’s traditions not only out of preference but also with thorough professionalism. Those who know and work with him make regular mention of his creativity and the enthusiasm that goes into each of his many and sharply differing wines with their blend of improbable grape varieties and surprising results.
