Awarded at a banquet. Incorporated into a bridal bouquet. Pinned to a hat. Pink carnations are at the heart of Gamma Phi Beta celebrations. Chosen as the Sorority’s official flower because of its beauty and long-lasting fragrance, the carnation symbolizes enduring love amongst our sisters. When we see its pink petals, we are reminded of that love. And just like our flower, this rosé is best when shared between sisters. The label artwork, “Carnations of Four, but There is No End,” is an original piece by Laura Lee Hallada (California State-Fullerton) inspired by Gamma Phi Beta’s four Founders.
INTRODUCING FALL 2022 VARIETALS AND LABELS!
\ trü \
1. being that which is the case rather than what is assumed
3. ideal, essential
In 1874, our four Founders gave life and meaning to our Sorority through our mission, vision and ritual. We know who we are and what we stand for. Almost 150 years later, those values are as True and Constant today as when they were first written. Gamma Phi Betas are loyal, faithful and ever striving for the ideal – to inspire the highest type of womanhood. To celebrate the strength of our sisterhood, enjoy the True and Constant Collection with sisters and cherish the time spent together.
We introduce you to our flagship Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, True. This is a premium and classic representation of the appellation’s preeminent varietal. Notes of black cherry, blackberry and plum are complemented by hints 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.

1. steadfast in purpose, loyalty or affection; faithful
2. unchanging in nature or value
3. continually occurring or recurring

We introduce you to our elegant Cuvée Blanc, Constant. This is an alluring and complex white wine blend, 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.
Bold & Courageous
When Gamma Phi Beta’s four founders entered Syracuse University in the early 1870s, they were among a small but bold contingent of women intent on seeking higher education. To knowingly enter a difficult environment took courage and despite the gender disparity they faced, they persevered and completed their degrees. To combat these challenges, Helen, Frances, Addie and Mary created our True and Constant sisterhood, a welcoming haven that offered support, acceptance, enrichment and love for female students. This bottle’s label is inspired by an illustration that appeared in The Crescent in the early 20th century.
Like our Founders, First Moon’s Bold and Courageous Pinot Noir is not afraid to forge its unique path.
We introduce you to our Bold & Courageous Pinot Noir. From the Russian River Valley AVA of Sonoma County, this beautiful wine is influenced mostly by the fog of the AVA and is very aromatic, with a velvet mouthfeel, and has a fruit character that is ripe and intense.
