An aroma of roses accompanies dark fruit – cherry, boysenberry – balanced with fruit acidity to finish clean.

In 1983, a nearby grower brought Andrew Quady some Black Muscat grapes that were previously destined for sacramental wine at a local church. When the church ceased operations, the grower was left with truckloads of ripe, unwanted Black Muscat. The grower heard through the grapevine that newcomer Quady had some success with Orange Muscat, so he knocked on Quady’s door, and the rest is history.

Quady handled the Black Muscat in the same manner as Essensia: crushing, chilling and allowing the grapes to macerate. He added wine spirits to arrest the fermentation. On draining the tank the winery began to smell of roses! In his amazement he held a naming contest and selected Elysium, “state of eternal bliss” in Greek, as a name for this exciting muscat wine.

Elysium’s violet-crimson color and litchi-rose aroma develop after the fruit attains full maturity. This requires a warm climate. In warmer years the color is darker and the aroma is more intense.

Elysium is wonderful with cheeses, especially goat cheese or Gorgonzola; with desserts containing red fruits, such as English Summer Pudding; with dark chocolate and with cream desserts and cheesecake. Elysium poured onto vanilla ice cream is an effortless favorite.

Elysium makes stunning spritzers and cocktails. Try the Elysium spritzer in the summertime as a light patio pleaser. Or mix it up with whiskey, lemon, and sweetener for an Elysium Sour. Add it to sparkling wine in place of creme de cassis to make a black muscat rendition of the popular French ‘kir royale.’ To peruse Elysium cocktail recipes, head over to our recipes page.

The heart on the Elysium label is drawn by artist Ardison Phillips. The label design is by Laurel Quady.

Fortified to Approximately 15% Alcohol by Volume.

This sweet, full-bodied red wine offers rich plums, cloves and dark cherries on a warm, broad texture that heats up on the finish.

My favorite wine. Not too sweet, soooo smooth and no headaches.

Only con: The twist top makes the wine feel cheap to me but I still buy it by the case.
