Consistently Sweet and Delicious Wines –

Without the Guesswork

Along with gifts, the upcoming Holidays are worthy of something special – perhaps a delicious dessert, perhaps delicious, sweet wines to go with that dessert.

Quady Winery (www.quadywinery.com) has been making delightful, very creative, award-winning sweet wines in Madera, CA since 1975, shipping their wines to connoisseurs in the U.S. and worldwide.

Quady wines are available at retail in all major markets in the U.S. In addition, Quady ships direct to many states; see www.quadywinery.com for more details.

Something Different – and Predictable – for a Change

And, unlike the uncertainly and guesswork we have all experienced opening a bottle of wine – only to find it has gone bad – these wines are consistently delicious and predictable.

Sweetness comes in many forms, perhaps as an aperitif before a great meal, wonderful as a sweet wine pairing with many desserts – and many people have not tasted excellent sweet wines.

There is Essensia, made from delicious Orange Muscat grapes (known in Italy as Orange Blossom Muscat), a delicious accompaniment to desserts, especially chocolate and those containing almonds, peaches, apples or apricots. With sparkling water, Essensia makes a refreshing spritzer; with sparking wine you have an Essensia Royale. Delicious.

Suggested retail price: $12 – $14 (375 ml), $24 (750 ml).

Elysium – Made from the Black Muscat grape with a rose and litchi scent and especially appropriate for Valentine’s with the heart on the label. Elysium is perhaps the best accompaniment for dark chocolate dessert. A Holiday celebration made simple? A bottle of Elysium, a red ribbon and the finest chocolate dessert you can find.

Suggested retail price: $12 – $14 (375 ml), $24 (750 ml).

Quady’s Batch 88 Starboard, is, yes, Port. But, of course, it can’t be "Port" because that comes from a place in Portugal, the Douro River Valley. Since "starboard" (right) is the opposite nautical direction to port (left) that’s how it got its name. The grapes in this world-class port are primarily Tinta Roriz from the Madera, CA area, a blend of several vintages, 190 proof neutral grape spirits (instead of the usual 140 proof fortifying brandy) and then aged, on average, five years. Superb for those who love a great, after-dinner Port.

Suggested retail price: $25 (750 ml).

Red Electra is a yummy wine with only 5% alcohol. It has a pretty red color, tastes grapy and sweet, and has a tangy sparkly feel. It’s a good wine for angels to drink when they party because with only 5% alcohol, they can party longer.

Suggested retail price: $12 – $14 (375 ml)
