Andrew Quady discusses Deviation on Grape Encounters Radio

Deviation wine, incorporating new ingredients from the plant kingdom, delivers higher levels of sensory pleasure than can be done with grapes alone. Its name refers not only to a deviation from winemaking practice but also to the history of specialty winemaking at Quady and as homage to change.   

Mysteriously attractive aromatics, sweet but with a surprisingly dry finish, and ethno botanical significance (of its non grape botanicals) make Deviation a wine for romance. Living up to its name, it is different in composition, in sensory impact, and in its power to induce emotion and feeling from other wines.

For some deviant cocktails try:

Deviation by "Street"
(Devised by: Marissa Gierlich ~ Street Restaurant, Los Angeles)

In a champagne flute or other interesting glass drinking vessel, place:
1 sugar cube
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 oz. Deviation
Top with something bubbly
Garnish with an orange wedge

And as Marissa says "Toast to all that is good, and devious, in life!"

A Devious Cocktail
(Created by: Gary Regan of

2 oz Quady Deviation
1 oz Armagnac
Fresh lemon juice to taste
