Andrew Quadys change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia from the
Orange Muscat grape. It was an instant success and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand. Now Quady is the foremost American winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide .In 1975 Quadys first port-like wine was made from Amador County Zinfandel. Now it is made from traditional Portuguese varietals such as Tinta Barocca and Tourigas.
:Vya Extra-Dry Vermouth is a whole new idea in dry vermouth. The objective was to give equal weight to the vinosity of the base wines (a mixture of Colombard and Orange Muscat) and to the selection of botanicals. The resulting vermouth described as like being in a forest after a rain.
