FROM THE PRODUCER
From the Winery
Slow down and take life a little less seriously with Sexual Chocolate, a baller red wine worth every penny and made in small batches by three former twentysomething bootleggers turned startup winery owners.
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 two styles, extra dry and sweet, for use either as an aperitif or to mix with spirits. Vya is the vermouth for the connoisseur.
