INTRODUCING SPRING 2022 VARIETALS AND LABELS!
“Love, Labor, Learning and Loyalty.
Gamma Phi Beta means so much to me…”
Gamma Phi Beta’s core values are True and Constant. They are unwavering reminders of the oath taken to uphold the highest standards. The Values Collection honors these values, beginning with Love. Love for each other, love for ourselves and love for Gamma Phi Beta.
As stated so eloquently by the beloved “Love, Labor, Learning and Loyalty” song from our 1980 Convention:
“There’s a reason here for a reason above.
A lifetime of sisterhood flowing with love.”
The 2019 “The Values Collection” Red Wine is an artful red blend created by winemaker Todd Heth. This wine 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.
Founder Frances E. Haven Moss made her mark as The Artist among Gamma Phi Beta’s founding sisters, and the original The Artist vintage celebrated the arts and culture that is woven into the fabric of Gamma Phi Beta. Inspired by Frances’s legacy, this chardonnay highlights an original work of art, “Wildflower” by Alyssa Hamilton (Northern Iowa), who shared this inspiration: “I imagine my child, and possible legacy, being a wildflower. I have a feeling all that wildness will come together in something undeniably beautiful; bright, vibrant, and full of life.”
This Chardonnay is a real gem. Hailing from the cool and foggy climate for the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, this beautiful medium-bodied wine was grown slowly to build intense flavors over time. This wine was aged in French oak and displays a beautiful balance of fruit, oak and liveliness on the palate and exhibits lush mango and toasted almond. Balanced fruit with tarte acidity makes this wine a classic example of Premium Russian River Chardonnay.
Whether you spot a crescent on a tile, necklace or shining in the sky, odds are you think of Gamma Phi Beta and the countless friendships and memories created. The crescent moon is one of the most frequently recognized symbols of Gamma Phi Beta, and it means so much to each member who knows its true meaning. No matter where you are in the world, when you look up in the night sky and see a waxing crescent – the first moon – you’ll always think of our sisterhood. Our 1874 Reserve brut sparkling was created to celebrate the best of times with our sisters.
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.
