From the Winery

Swap your usual bellinis or mimosas for a brunch cocktail mixing bubbly or seltzer with Essensia from Andrew Quady instead, an award-winning sweet orange muscat with subtle apricot flavors.

More about Quady Winery

Quady Winery specializes in dessert wines from under-appreciated muscat varieties, in ports, and in aperitif wines. Essensia and Electra made from Orange Muscat and Elysium and Red Electra from the Black Muscat variety can either accompany or replace a dessert and are best if served chilled. Starboard, a port type wine made in a fruit forward-softer style, is Quady's euphemism for port. It is made in two styles: Batch 88 for current drinking and Vintage Starboard, for bottle aging. Recently, Quady has introduced Vya Vermouths, made in two styles, extra dry and sweet, for use either as an aperitif or to mix with spirits. Vya is the vermouth for the connoisseur.
