True North Club

Wine Club Membership Financially Supports Theta Phi Alpha

True North Club members will receive their shipments in a gorgeous wood crate emblazoned with symbols from Theta Phi Alpha’s history. Members will immediately recognize the Theta Phi Alpha Coat of Arms on the top of the box surrounded by a border of chain links with a hidden symbol of our special sisterhood as a surprise for the keen eye. Our symbolic ties carry over to the sides of the box by showcasing the Theta Phi Alpha membership badge that we all wear on our hearts with pride, the Great Seal, and Ever Loyal, Ever Lasting, the words that describe our commitment to Theta Phi Alpha. Our linked border continues around the remaining side where you’ll find the True North Napa Valley logo.

With every shipment, members of the True North Club are supporting all members through the Fraternity’s strategic priorities and initiatives including membership development and programming; awards and recognitions; dedicated staffing; diversity, equity, and inclusion; and, the alumnae experience.

Inaugural Wines

Ms. Amelia

2018 Red Wine – Napa Valley

Ms. Amelia is the first of ten releases in the Founders’ series. The Founders’ series honors the legacy of Theta Phi Alpha’s Founders, who, in their desire to establish an organization that supported women at the University of Michigan, cultivated a sisterhood that thrives today.

Amelia McSweeney, considered by other Founders as the one true Founder of Theta Phi Alpha, utilized her character traits of strength with humility, resolve laced with kindness, and a steady focus toward achieving a goal desired by many. She was said to have infused that infant group with that brave spirit with which she was so generously blessed.

We introduce you to Ms. Amelia. 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.
$75 / Bottle

White Rose

2019 Chardonnay – Napa Valley

Delicate and fragrant, the beautiful white rose is recognized as one of Theta Phi Alpha’s first three symbols identified by the Founders. As a symbol of friendship, sisterhood, and loyalty, the white rose binds Theta Phi Alphas together in melodious song and inspires everlasting memories.

We introduce you to White Rose. 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.
$45 / Bottle

1912 Reserve

Napa Valley Brut Sparkling – Méthode Champenoise

Founded in 1912, Theta Phi Alpha celebrates a long history of everlasting sisterhood, established by our ten valiant Founders. This premium sparkling wine is crafted using the centuries-old “Méthode Champenoise” and draws inspiration from the courage and leadership that brought Theta Phi Alpha into being in 1912.

We introduce you to 1912 Reserve. 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
$65 / Bottle
