Countdown to Fall 2021 Releases!
The Ivy Club
As a member of The Ivy Club, you have a unique opportunity to celebrate Alpha Phi’s history and ensure its future!
Since 1872, sisterhood has been shared hand-to-hand, heart-to-heart and Alpha Phi to Alpha Phi. Now, members have a unique opportunity to support Alpha Phi by becoming a member of The Ivy Club. Sisters who join The Ivy Club will receive two shipments of six bottles of hand-crafted, limited production The Ivy Napa Valley wines made exclusively for Alpha Phi by Fairwinds Estate Winery, while safeguarding Alpha Phi’s heritage and supporting the member experience. Together, let’s once again make a toast that time can never dim.

THE NEW VARIETALS AND LABELS FOR THE FALL 2021 SHIPMENT WILL BE UNVEILED HERE IN THE COMING WEEKS!
Courageous – Rena
Courageous is the first of ten releases in The Original Ten series. These wines honor our ten Founders and the qualities they brought to Alpha Phi. It takes a courageous person to fearlessly pursue her dreams, and courage was in Rena’s nature.
As one of The Original Ten, she served as Alpha Phi’s first chapter president, a college professor, an author, a journalist and the president of the Cook County Woman’s Suffrage Society of Illinois. She raised her voice so that the voices of all women would, one day, be heard and make a difference.
This proprietary red blend – from our award-winning winemaker Todd Heth – exhibits dark blackberry, bing cherry and plum notes perfectly into layers of coffee and tobacco. The finish is dry with long lasting berry fruit. Silky but firm tannins, this wine is enjoyable now but has the ability to age well in the cellar.
Lily of the Valley
Few symbols mean as much to Alpha Phis as the lily of the valley. Delicate and fragrant, the bell-shaped blossom connects us to the feeling of sisterhood and the warmth of friendship. Just like Alpha Phis, lilies of the valley are planted individually before growing closely together, in time joining to create a beautiful garden. Be inspired to grow. Be inspired to bloom.
From the chalky soil of the Carneros region in southern Napa Valley, this gem exhibits lush green apple and bright grapefruit notes while dancing across your palate. This stunning wine is light and friendly with very subtle vanilla and pear blossom hints on the nose. Balanced fruit with tarte acidity makes this wine a classic example of Premium Napa Chardonnay.
Alpha Phi celebrates 150 years of sisterhood in 2022. The anniversary is the perfect opportunity to reflect on all that Alpha Phi has brought to our lives. Our premium sparkling wine is crafted using the centuries-old “Méthode Champenoise” and draws inspiration from the ingenuity and leadership in our first 150 years. Today, we are a membership of more than 270,000 phenomenal women inspired by the same foundation laid by our Original Ten.
This premium sparkling wine – meticulously and artfully made in the traditional champagne method – rivals anything found from the best Champagne houses in Épernay and Reims. Blended superbly from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this magnificent Napa Valley Brut exhibits rich fruit aromatics of strawberry and delicate white cherry that follows through to a creamy mid-palate accompanied with highlights of lime and wet minerality and a lingering vibrant finish.
