Spring 2022 Release
INTRODUCING THE SPRING 2022 VARIETALS AND LABELS!
“I believe that the word Virtue is an inclusive term; that it is not enough that I be merely passively virtuous: I must be positive on virtue’s behalf. Therefore, I will stand aggressively for honesty in all walks of life, and I will speak cleanly, play cleanly, and live cleanly. Whenever I can, I will oppose lawlessness and vice.”
– Past Grand President Oscar E. Draper, Washington State ‘19
Virtue, the first of SigEp’s three cardinal principles, is a word honored by all brothers of SigEp. As seen on our crest, this principle is represented by the Sword of Virtue and has become one of SigEp’s most recognizable icons.
We introduce you to the SigEp Icons Series – Virtue. This 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.
An ode to those who are most special to us, the Serenade Chardonnay was inspired by our loved ones and the songs we sing about them. Drawing on the design from one of the earliest SigEp Song vinyls, the art deco-style label reflects the time-honored tradition of our Fraternity and its sweethearts. Much like our songs, this wine reflects the strength of our brotherhood and our devotion to those we hold dear.
We introduce you to Serenade. 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 golden heart is the eternal emblem of Sigma Phi Epsilon and our inaugural Sparkling Brut. The bond between brothers is true friendship and can never be broken and is best exemplified by the decades of service given by the recipients of SigEp’s highest honor, the Order of the Golden Heart. Gather together and raise a glass of Golden Heart Brut to rejoice with your brothers and celebrate the love you share with SigEp.
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.

Hear About Red Door
Each bottle of wine tells a SigEp story — of our history, our founders, our firsts — and the brotherhood we’ve all found inside the red doors of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
