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 three styles, extra dry, whisper dry and sweet, for use either as an aperitif or to mix with spirits. Vya is the vermouth for the connoisseur.

Red ElectraRed ElectraFor several years, some of our avid Electra fans have been asking for a red version of Electra. In the year 2000 we had fun making a small batch. The reception was so overwhelming, it flew out the doors. The wine even received a double gold medal at the San Francisco Fair. It has continued to take flight and win medals ever since. . . .more

Ports and Starboards
