Redi and son Roberto Quai first planted their vineyards just north of Sparta in 1972. Roberto and wife, Lisa, opened the doors of the winery in 1990 and are pleased to celebrate 26 successful years in the wine industry.
At Quai du Vin Estate Winery (pronounced “K dew vañ”), the focus is the established winemaking and retailing operation that feature and complement the vineyard and the scenic location. Quai du Vin produces 90,000 bottles per year with the top sellers being their Vidal and Baco Noir. Winery tours are available with the length depending upon interest level, ranging from 30 - 60 minutes. Expanded tours that include food and wine pairings are also available by booking in advance.
Jamie Quai now adds to the winery’s legacy as the third generation to harvest and make wines on the fertile lands in Elgin. Jamie is expanding the development of the wine with barrel aging and introduction of new wines such as Viognier (well known in Europe) that are well suited for this climate.
In addition to wine, Quai du Vin offers a pristine country setting second to none and has become famous for their outdoor events. Tickets and event information are available online or by phone.
