Introducing the Spring 2022 varietals and labels!
Erskine Mayo Ross, born in Culpepper County, Virginia, in 1845, entered VMI in 1860. He moved to California after the civil war, studied law at night, and was admitted to the California bar in 1869. Elected a Justice of the Supreme Court of California 10 years later, he was reelected in 1882. He was appointed a judge of the U.S. Southern District of California in 1886 and the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 1895. He was the founder of the city of Glendale, California. Rossmoyne, a suburb of Glendale, perpetuates his name and fame. He died Dec. 10, 1928. Possessed of personal courage and strong quiet judgement, Judge Erskine Mayo Ross left his Fraternity a $5,000 bequest, which established the ATO Foundation Fund.
The 2019 Founders 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.
White Tea Rose
The White Tea Rose, adopted by the 1892 Congress as the Fraternity’s flower, was selected because of it white petals and green stalk. A bouquet of white tea roses tied with a sky blue and gold ribbons contains the fraternity’s quartet of symbolic colors.
We introduce you to White Tea Rose. 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.
Ruh Rah Rega
Ruh Rah Rega can be heard around campus when ATO’s celebrate a victory!
Ruh Rah Rega! Alpha Tau Omega! Hip hurrah, hip hurrah, three cheers for Alpha Tau A! T! O!
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. It should be shared among brothers in celebration of all life’s victories! Ruh Rah Rega!
