Cheers to fall!
Countdown to Fall Release!
The 1904 Club
As a member of the 1904 Club, you have a unique opportunity to support Pi Kappa Phi.
Introducing the 1904 Club, a partnership between Pi Kappa Phi and the Fairwinds Estate Winery. Celebrate the history of the Fraternity through exclusive two shipments (three bottles or six bottles each) per year of white, red and sparkling wines from 90 Broad Napa Valley, Pi Kappa Phi’s exclusive private label from Fairwinds Estate. These libations commemorate many of the concepts we hold dear that are special to the Fraternity.
By enjoying a glass of wine through the 1904 Club, you support Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity to ensure our exceptional young leaders continue to enjoy uncommonly great opportunities.
We would love for you to consider joining the 1904 Club to celebrate our great Fraternity and give back to the organization that has such a special place in our hearts.
Great wine and fraternal friendships have something special in common. They both possess a richness, a sense of fullness, and complexity that improves with age. This limited release – MET – is an homage to those bonds, old and new, depleted and restored, sustaining and transformative, forged during Mark Edward Timmes remarkable 28 years as Pi Kappa Phi’s Chief Executive Officer.
Fall 2022 Release
INTRODUCING OUR FALL 2022 LABELS AND VARIETALS
This red wine is named for one of the founders, Lawrence H. Mixson. This is the final wine in a three bottle collection highlighting our founders. Founder Mixson was fond of humor, particularly the fellowship it provided in the company of brothers. Red wine is seen all over the world as a drink of appreciation. Share this bottle, and a few laughs, with your Pi Kappa Phi brothers as you appreciate the bond of brotherhood that began so many years ago with our founders’ bond and has grown to over 150,000 men.
We introduce you to Mixson. The 2019 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.
The Gifts: Rose
The Gifts wine series highlights anniversary gifts to the College of Charleston from Pi Kappa Phi. A seventy-five bush rose garden, was the diamond anniversary gift to the College of Charleston and reaffirms our commitment to the College. The Red Rose is the flower of Pi Kappa Phi, and title of our serenade song, which has been sung by members of the fraternity for years to special people in their lives as a gesture of appreciation.
We introduce you to The Gifts. 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.
The Pi Kappa Phi bell is rung three times as our call to gather. Three Rings Brut from 90 Broad is a call for all Pi Kapps to gather and toast our accomplishments while celebrating our brotherhood. Pop the cork as a call to “raise your glasses high, oh brothers drink a Pi Kapp toast!”
We introduce to you Three Rings. 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.
