Imagine a starry, tropical night accompanied by a softly spiced, aromatic dessert wine. This unique wine is Deviation.
Deviation is Orange Muscat wine infused with Rose Geranium and Damiana. The Rose Geranium leaves gathered from the Quady garden impart an herbal quality and an unusual finish in a sweet wine. Damiana, wild harvested from South America, was first used by the Mayans for its aphrodisiac properties and continues to be popular today for luck in love.
To make Deviation, the herbs steep in Orange Muscat wine for seven days. The wine is filtered and bottled, and held for one year before release.
Wines infused with plants are “aromatized wines.” Whereas there are several aromatized aperitíf wines, Deviation as a dessert wine is unique. It is a deviation from traditional winemaking and the usual after dinner experience.
Enjoy Deviation with pie, truffles, cookies, vanilla, cheese and fruit, as a palate cleanser, or in a cocktail.
Deviation was introduced in 2006 after Andrew Quady enjoyed experimenting with the aphrodisiac properties of Damiana.
