About Quady Winery
Famed for its exquisite variety of dessert wines, Quady Winery remains an iconic symbol of US winemaking talent. Established in California in 1975 by Andrew Quady, the vineyard has forged its reputation on innovation and devotion to craft. With its luscious and light hearted varietals, this winery endears itself to wine connoisseurs and rookies alike.
Occupying roughly 1,800 acres of fertile Californian soil, Quady Winery is nestled at the foot of Sierra Nevada. The terrain is an ideal base for expert winemaking - with the rich soil, an abundant sunshine and the perfect amount of rainfall providing the winery with the necessary ingredients for excellence.
Quady Winery's signature invention, a superbly sweet, fragrant dessert wine called ‘Essencia’, is perhaps the most widely acclaimed. Made from the noble Orange Muscat grape, the wine boasts a luscian sage sweetness that pirouettes on the palate. It is a cherished pioneering work that truly showcases the vintner’s craft.
However, its not all about the dessert wines at Quady. The winery has successfully diversified its portfolio to include a variety of fortified wines, displaying a significant breadth of talent that extends beyond the sweet. Of particular note is the ‘Starboard Batch 88’, a port-style wine, and the ‘Vya Vermouth’, a fantastically flavourful tipple that harks back to the Italian tradition of infused wines.
Working diligently to deepen their commitment to sustainable practices, Quady Winery have also pledged to minimising their environmental impact. Grapes are meticulously hand-tended, and they are firm believers in natural biological control over the use of harmful chemicals.
