IT ALL BEGAN ... when Brandon Chaney INDIANA 1993 was pouring his Estate Cabernet Sauvignon from his Napa winery for pledge brother Jim Cunnane INDIANA 1992. It occurred to him in that moment that Sigma Chis all over the world did not have a wine specifically made for them to celebrate their brotherhood and the great history of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. 

HE ALSO REFLECTED ... on the tremendous impact Sigma Chi has had on his life – the bond of his pledge class, the memories at the Lambda chapter house, his life’s journey based on the ideals of the White Cross and the sense of being part of something bigger than himself. He wanted to give back to Sigma Chi.  

THE 1855 CLUB WAS BORN ... after Brandon shared his idea with the leadership of the Sigma Chi Foundation and Sigma Chi Fraternity, they collectively decided to introduce In Hoc Napa Valley and the Sigma Chi 1855 Club to the brotherhood and produce wines that would stand on their own for quality and pleasure. In Hoc Napa Valley celebrates the history and core values of the Sigma Chi fraternity and funds scholarships for the International Balfour Award winner and finalists.

“Everything we do in life – we do it to share. Sharing things together is the foundation of our brotherhood. As Sigma Chis, we can create great things in life – but if we don’t share them, it is meaningless. Nothing brings people together better than wine – with a meal, or celebration, or just enjoying with family and friends.

I am not the first Sigma Chi to own a winery in Napa Valley, but I am first to realize how important it is to share my lifelong dream – to share these very special wines and celebrate our fraternity’s brotherhood and history – to give back to Sigma Chi.

I am proud of being a Sigma Chi and feel honored to make these wines for you. I hope you will enjoy them and share them generously in the years ahead.”
