“The Founders were inspired by a vision: a vivid, spiritual and patriotic vision; an ineffable, profound dream of a great people, long estranged by intersectional animosities and torn by a devastating fratricidal way, living together in peace and unity under the healing and transforming power of brotherhood and love.”
The evening of Tuesday, September 11, 1865, was the time of “the Founders’ Meeting.” The place was the back parlor of Otis Allen Glazebrook’s home at 114 East Clay Street, Richmond. There Glazebrook read his work and it was ratified by the signatures of the other two. They signed in alphabetical order. This happened to be also the order in which they had become interested in Glazebrook’s creation.
In his honor, we introduce to you, The Otis. 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.
The Palm branch holds esoteric and spiritual meaning for the Fraternity. A brother’s hand of assistance offered to another brother “under the shade of the great Palm”.
The Palm would also be utilized by “Second Founder” Joseph R. Anderson to emphasize the importance of brothers communicating to one another important news of the Fraternity, its chapters and members.
We introduce to you, The Palm. 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 Chardonnay.

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!
We introduce to you with tremendous pride, Ruh Rah Rega. 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!
