Kappa Kappa Gamma launches line of handcrafted wine in partnership with Fairwinds Estate Winery
DUBLIN, Ohio — Kappa Kappa Gamma is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Fairwinds Estate Winery and introduce The Fleur Napa Valley, a line of handcrafted wines made exclusively for Kappa’s alumna members.
“This is a first for Kappa, and we are so proud to have Fairwinds working alongside us,” said Kari Kittrell Poole, Fraternity Executive Director. “Together, we’ve created a premium wine brand that will delight members with Kappa’s rich history and stories. We hope members will join us and raise a toast to dreaming boldly and living fully.”
Through the partnership, Kappas may join The Fleur Club and will receive two shipments a year of limited-production wine, private member store access, and more. Proceeds support Fraternity initiatives and enhance the membership experience while celebrating and supporting Kappa’s mission for the next 150 years.
“With every glass of The Fleur Napa Valley wine, members are strengthening the Kappa experience. The Fleur Wine Club allows our members to support the Fraternity’s impact all while celebrating all that makes Kappa special and meaningful.”
The inaugural release features winter varietals and labels, including 1870 Reserve, a 2018 red blend – Napa Valley; Oh Pat!, a 2018 chardonnay – Russian River Valley; and Sapphire, a sparkling blanc de blanc. Fairwinds proprietor and CEO Brandon R. Chaney believes the selections are perfect for toasting to all of life’s special moments.
“It is such an honor to make these wines for Kappa Kappa Gamma,” said Brandon. “Kappa’s core values of connection, truth, respect, optimism, knowledge and trailblazing are the foundation to The Fleur Club experience. When you enjoy these premium handcrafted wines, you are celebrating Kappa's rich history and supporting an organization that is ready to embark on its next 150 years.”

About Fairwinds Estate Winery
Fairwinds Estate Winery is nestled in the hillside off the Silverado Trail in the northern realm of Napa Valley. The historic winery was the fourth established in Napa Valley after Prohibition. In September 2020, the winery suffered extensive damage in the Glass Fire that reaped havoc in the wine country. Serendipitously, Fairwinds’ wine inventory and production were spared in its underground wine caves. Planning is underway to rebuild the damaged structures on the majestic property to create an iconic architectural statement for visitors to enjoy in the future. Fairwinds is currently open for tastings and events in its 22,000-square-foot wine cave by appointment.
