Cheers to Spring!
Countdown to Spring Release!
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 Sororitys’ strategic priorities and initiatives including membership development and programming; awards and recognitions; dedicated staffing; diversity, equity, and inclusion; and, the alumnae experience.
Spring 2022 Release
INTRODUCING YOUR SPRING 2022 LABELS AND VARIETALS
Ms. Dorothy is the second 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.
Dorothy Caughey Phalan, considered by other Founders as a forward thinker, utilized her character traits of leadership with direction and a steady focus towards assisting in the founding of the Sorority by providing the original meeting space to plan the reorganization of Omega Upsilon. Forever linked to Theta Phi Alpha, Dorothy was the mother of the first legacy and welcomed her granddaughter to the circle of sisterhood.
We introduce you to Ms. Dorothy. This flagship Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic representation of the appellation’s preeminent varietal. Notes 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.
Designated as the official jewel by the original National Constitution in 1919, the sapphire represents loyalty in Theta Phi Alpha – loyalty to the Sorority, loyalty to every friend, and loyalty to the promises that we made, keeping steadfast in our commitment to Theta Phi Alpha.
We introduce you to Loyalty. This Pinot Noir 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.
From North to South, East to West, the compass of Theta Phi Alpha is one of the Sorority’s most treasured symbols. Pointing north, signifying constancy, the compass guides our way in Theta Phi Alpha, keeping it firm and secure, through the ever loyal, ever lasting bonds of sisterhood.
We introduce to you Four Points. This elegant white wine blend is alluring and complex. 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.
