Club Fifty5 Membership Supports Iota Phi Theta

Building A Tradition, Not Resting Upon One, the motto of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. a motto that should drive each member of our fraternity, to continue to dig, moving forward and upward in our collective and individual plights.

As the first D-9, NPHC organization to work in conjunction with Fairwinds Estate Winery, we are excited to introduce our 1963 Napa Valley wine, and the Club Fifty5.  1963 Napa Valley allows our members the opportunity to strengthen the bond of brotherhood in a different manner by collectively following the light of the Polaris to afford our fraternity the opportunity to solidify programming, technological endeavors and to attack the initiatives of the One Iota Foundation that focuses on mental health and cancer research just to name a few.  Brothers who become members will receive limited production, handcrafted, 1963 Napa Valley wines made exclusively for Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. We would love for you to join Club Fifty5 and know by doing so, not only will you enjoy world class wine, but you will also be supporting our fraternal objectives as One Iota.

Inaugural Release



2018 Red Wine – Napa Valley

Those that create a way for others are looked upon as pathfinders. Those that sacrifice and break from the norm are called innovators. Those that light the way of the long, winding road, we honor. On September 19, 1963, at Morgan State College (now Morgan State University), 12 students founded a predominantly African-American social service fraternity. We pay tribute to these men, the founding fathers of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc.

We introduce you to IDRYTES. 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.
$95 / Bottle

Eternally Golden

2019 Chardonnay – Napa Valley

Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. recognized a pivotal Woman in the early days of the organization by deeming her The Eternal Sweetheart. Ms. Audrey S. Brooks, then a staff member at Morgan State College, was a tremendous behind-the-scenes support, assisting through tough times of adversity on and off the college campus. She will forever be our yellow rose and the foundation of our golden affair with hearts across the world.

We introduce you to Eternally Golden. 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 Valley Chardonnay.
$56 / Bottle

B&G 1963 Reserve

Sparkling Blanc de Blancs – Méthode Champenoise – Napa Valley

Centaurs shall follow the guidance of the Polaris, with Pride, Dignity and Honor. This family, the brown and gold family, shall wear thy shield of Brotherhood, for all the world to see.

We introduce you to B&G 1963 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 100% Chardonnay, this magnificent Napa Valley Blanc de Blancs exhibits beautiful green apple and tropical notes in the aroma follows through in the mouth with a smooth fine mousse. This wine finishes with refreshing, lingering light tropical flavors that beg for another sip.
$85 / Bottle
