Countdown to the inaugural shipment...
12th Gate Napa Valley’s inaugural spring shipment will be on April 30, 2021. This vintage and wooden crates are limited so don’t miss out to secure your club seniority and support Kappa Sigma!
Membership Financially Supports Kappa Sigma
Brothers that join the 1869 Club will be directly supporting Kappa Sigma Fraternity and helping offset expenses of our undergraduate chapters and members. Those that join the 1869 Club will receive two shipments per year (six bottles each) of handcrafted Napa Valley wines made exclusively for the Brotherhood.
There is no long term commitment.

Club Format and Cost
In order to receive shipments and be eligible to purchase additional bottles, you must be a member of the 1869 Club. A $50 one-time, non-refundable deposit will be processed to secure your April 2021 allocation. This deposit will be deducted from your April 2021 club shipment cost. Wines are released in two 6-bottle shipments each year (April and October).
Wines are allocated based on the date each member joined the 1869 Club. The cost range for each 6-bottle shipment is $290 to $450 plus tax and shipping – depending on your selections. Each shipment arrives in a vintage Kappa Sigma wooden crate. Except for your one-time, non-refundable $50 deposit, your card will not be charged until a week before each shipment.
You can customize your wines! New, library and special edition wines will be offered for your selection. There is no long-term commitment, and you may cancel at any time.
Enjoy your wine and remember, when you share a glass, gift a bottle or visit the Fairwinds tasting room in Napa Valley together, you are supporting Kappa Sigma!
