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 Sweet Vermouth, inspired by the best Italian sweet vermouths, is all about sensations that stimulate the taste buds, producing a mouth-watering effect. A subtle balance of bitter and sweet. Vya Sweet is made from Orange Muscat (the same grape as used for Quady's renowned Essensia) and Valdepenas (for its red fruit tones), combined with plant infusions.
