In a small San Joaquin valley town, Andrew Quady discovered an unused patch of the rare Orange Muscat grape varietal, known in Italy as Moscato Fior d’Arancio. These grapes became the first Essensia.

Throw out what you know about vermouth and think again. This time think about quality wine, a culinary selection of whole dried herbs, and expert winemaking. Think about a mountain meadow after the rain, or the comforting aromas of holiday baking. Quady’s Vya vermouths are aromatherapeutic. Relaxing. Enlivening. Enticing.
“The discovery of a wine is of greater moment than the discovery of a constellation,” Ben Franklin once said, no doubt while tasting a newly treasured wine. At Quady Winery, discovery the core of the mission. Quady’s sweet and apéritif wines chart new territories in American winemaking.
