Quady Vya Extra Dry Vermouth

Andrew Quady's change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia from the Orange Muscat grape. It was an instant success and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand. Quady is now the foremost American winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide. Vya Extra Dry was the result of Andrew Quady's two year quest to create a top quality vermouth. 15 different botanicals - mainly leaves, flowers, citrus rind and seeds were added to the base white wine. Lavender, sage, alfalfa and linden are important constituents.


Tasting Note
Vya Extra-Dry Vermouth is a whole new idea in dry vermouth. The objective was to give equal weight to the vinosity of the base wines (a mixture of Colombard and Orange Muscat) and to the selection of botanicals. The resulting vermouth is mysteriously engaging, wine-like with a note of coolness and with an aroma described as like being in a forest after a rain.
