1844 Reserve Napa Valley!
Countdown to Inaugural Release!
Deke Wine Club
Welcome to 1844 Reserve Napa Valley, our new wine club featuring premium wines designed exclusively for Delta Kappa Epsilon in partnership with Fairwinds Estate Winery.
We can’t wait to embark on this new tradition with you and hope that each bottle reminds you of what it means to be a Deke. Every collection is designed to commemorate our rich heritage, traditions, and exceptional members. Together, let’s uncork the bonds of brotherhood and raise a glass to Delta Kappa Epsilon.
INTRODUCING OUR INAUGURAL RELEASE VARIETALS AND LABELS!
Raise a glass to the essence of true brotherhood. Deke Gentlemen, members of Delta Kappa Epsilon, embody the values of character, leadership, scholarship, and service. With integrity and respect, they strive to make a positive impact on society. These men, guided by tradition and united in friendship, celebrate the bonds of brotherhood while inspiring others to be leaders and scholars. Indulge in this exquisite wine, crafted with the same care and dedication as their pursuit of excellence. Cheers to the spirit of DKE and the timeless values of the Gentleman.
We introduce you to Deke Gentlemen. 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.
Savor the taste of excellence and the spirit of scholarship. Delta Kappa Epsilon values academic achievement, fostering a love for learning and intellectual growth. This carefully crafted wine celebrates the pursuit of knowledge and the dedication to academic excellence. Raise your glass to the commitment to scholarship that defines DKE, inspiring its members to reach new heights of success. Cheers to the scholars of DKE and the pursuit of excellence.
We introduce you to Deke Scholars. 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 tart acidity makes this wine a classic example of Premium Napa Valley Chardonnay.
Jolly Good Fellows
Indulge in the vibrant spirit of camaraderie with our exceptional wine. Just like the Jolly Good Fellow of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, our wine brings joy, laughter, and positivity to every occasion. Crafted with care, each sip is a celebration of the sociable and cheerful moments that create lasting memories. Toast to the lively atmosphere, filled with humor and camaraderie, as you savor this exquisite wine.
We introduce you to Jolly Good Fellows. 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.
1844 Reserve – Where Gentlemen, Scholars, and Jolly Good Fellows Uncork the Bonds of Brotherhood.
