Not just any old Port in a storm, Ficklin Vineyards is America’s oldest Port winery and was founded in 1946. It is a family owned producer of premium, medal-winning Ports. Visit the winery to taste their wines and tour the adobe building that is home to their Port Library and Solera, this is a must whenever you are in the region.
Quady Winery specializes in dessert wines from under-appreciated muscat varieties, in ports, and in aperitif wines. Stop by their vineyards and take the tour, attend a free tasting, and spend your vacation budget on their fabulous selections. Examples include:
The Essensia and Electra wines made from Orange Muscat
Elysium and Red Electra from the Black Muscat variety; they can either accompany or replace a dessert and are best if served chilled.
Starboard, a port type wine made in a fruit forward-softer style is Quady's euphemism for port. It is made in two styles: Batch 88 for current drinking and Vintage Starboard, for bottle aging.
Vya Vermouths, made in two styles, extra dry and sweet, for use either as an aperitif or to mix with spirits. Vya is the vermouth for the connoisseur.
This wine trail will take you on a tour of the wineries making award-winning wines just south of Yosemite National Forest. Madera County has a long tradition producing wine and is one of the oldest grape growing regions in America.
Guests visiting the Madera Wine Trail reap the benefits of the region’s rich history, knowledgeable staff, and tasting rooms that are still small enough for you to be able to chat with the winemakers themselves.
