At Quady Winery we make sweet dessert and aperitif wines from varietals and in styles hard to find anywhere else. We received eight 90+ point scores from Wine Enthusiast in 2016.

Our wines are full of character: spicy and floral, fresh, fruity, and well balanced. Andrew made a name for himself in the '80s as the muscat king by introducing first Essensia, an Orange Muscat varietal and then Elysium, made from Black Muscat. These two aromatic and intense wines broke new ground in the dessert wine field, and today are used behind the bar as high quality cocktail enhancers for signature cocktails. Andrew then introduced Electra, the first U.S. moscato; Deviation, an aromatized dessert wine; Palomino Fino, an Amontillado style Sherry; and Starboard, a port-style wine.

Like our wines, our winery is made up of some extraordinary characters. Our dedicated winemaker, Michael Blaylock and our general manager, Cheryl Russell have been with us since 1984. Thanks to 30 years of hard work and dedication, the fruits of Quady Winery are appreciated around the world. Some people say we’re the best. They’ve even given us awards that say so. But don’t take their word for it. Try some for yourself.

We’ve been keeping it sweet since 1975 as the makers of America's premier sweet muscats, port-styles, and artisanal vermouth. Come and visit us! We have a tasting room and make slushies in the summer.
