Relax, sip, shut your eyes, and be transported to a mountain meadow on a river of dry white wine, Orange Muscat, angelica, orris, linden, lavender and more.
Made in California’s San Joaquin Valley from a blend of dry white wine that includes Orange Muscat, Vya Extra Dry is carefully hand infused at Quady Winery with a selection of over fifteen dried herbs. In Vya Extra Dry the flowers and leaves of the plants are used for the infusion, whereas in the Vya Sweet, the roots and seeds of different plants are used. The flowers and leaves of different plants make Vya Extra Dry powerfully herbaceous, crisp, and refreshing. A few of the herbs used include lavender, linden, sage, orris, alfalfa, and angelica.
Fresh and aromatic, Vya Extra Dry wakes up the taste buds, and makes a wet martini or an aperitif on the rocks that livens up the end of the day.
The base wine is a blend of fresh, clean, and light wines that may include Orange Muscat. The Vya philosophy is to maintain a base wine of high quality, with appropriate viscosity and balance, yet very little varietal character, allowing for a complete integration of herbs and wine.
Vya Extra Dry Vermouth spends six months in French Oak barrels before bottling. The refreshing, aromatic character of Vya Extra Dry Vermouth adds to the pleasure of mixing unique, signature drinks including classics like the Wet Martini, Scofflaw, Perfect Manhattan, and Brooklyn cocktails. It also makes for an excellent aperitif on its own.
