Sisters who join The Ivy Wine 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.

Fall 2021 Wines
INTRODUCING THE FALL 2021 VARIETALS AND LABELS!
Ten bold women fortified with faith, vision and determination came together in 1872 to build a society for mutual benefit in the spirit of love. In their conviction to create an encouraging space for women, Alpha Phi was born, and with each passing year our members remain inspired by our Founders’ daring spirit. When Clara, Kate, Mattie and the others first pursued the idea of establishing a Fraternity, did they imagine their revolutionary actions would develop over the next 150 years? Did they anticipate their work would launch millions of friendships? Could they have dreamed the heights Alpha Phis would ascend together?
Be inspired to follow your dreams.
Our flagship Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic representation of the appellation’s preeminent varietal. Notes of of black cherry, blackberry and plum are complemented by hits of toasted oak, dried currant and baking spice. Fine-grained tannins and ample brightness on the palate give way to a polished mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish.
In finding the people who inspire, challenge, encourage and love you, there is a spark that ignites you to inspire, challenge, encourage and love them right back. That is the double honor of Alpha Phi. All those who have the honor of joining Alpha Phi understand that Alpha Phi is also honored to welcome them into the sisterhood. Our loyal circle is full of determination and generosity because of the members linked together for a lifetime. We hope the moment you became an Alpha Phi lives on in your heart forever. The moment you joined certainly remains alive in ours.
Honor and celebrate our sisterhood.
Our Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County experiences a lengthy and cool growing season that is similar to the climate of the Burgundy region of east-central France. Unlike Burgundy, our Pinot Noir experiences dense fog that rolls in off the Pacific Ocean; this fog contributes to the ideal climate for Pinot Noir, offering just enough moisture to be beneficial without lingering too long.
Double Honor has aromas of cherries, raspberries, blackberries, and brown sugar with notes of baking spices. On the palate, the wine opens with bright, fruit flavors of strawberries, leading to a round mouthfeel on the mid-palate and soft, velvety tannins on a long, elegant finish.
When we hear certain melodies, they take us back to a moment in time. With every sip of Lovely Girl, we are transported back to days when we were surrounded by our sisters. Memories flood back as we recall the feeling of anticipation of joining Alpha Phi, as we reminisce on the excitement of candle passings to celebrate love’s promise and as we reflect on the beauty of our lifelong connection.
…Forget‐me‐nots will still be blue, And Alpha Phis are true…
Be inspired to reconnect.
This elegant white wine blend is alluring and complex, with a sensuous offering of tropical fruits, white flowers and subtle spice. The nose is like a bouquet of flowers and jumps from the glass with ripe lemon, white peach and orange blossom followed by notes of toast and white pepper. On the tongue, lemon bursts forward with pineapple and other tropical fruit, with undertones of vanilla. The finish is bright and zingy and mellows with vanilla and subtle spices in its length.
