TU Presents Private Label Wine

Fall/Winter 2013

In recognition of Tiffin University’s 125th Anniversary, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations introduced two private label wines under the direction of Fireland’s Winery of Sandusky, Ohio, and Ralph’s Joy of Living of Tiffin. The wine, Founder’s Red is a rich blend of zinfandel and select red varietals, and Heritage White is a crisp, refreshing Riesling.

Founder’s Red and Heritage White are the official house wine for all Tiffin University events and are available exclusively at Ralph’s Joy of Living stores in Tiffin and Fremont. The wines retail for $13.99 per bottle, with a portion of proceeds benefiting the Tiffin Fund.

“Ralph and I are so excited to be in partnership with Tiffin University,” said Julie Smothers, “and to share in celebrating 125 years of TU’s academic excellence. Ralph’s Joy of Living and Tiffin University are committed to serving the Tiffin community and the TU private label wine program gives us an opportunity to collaborate together in a unique fashion.”

The BrandSource buying group of Anaheim, Calilfornia, recently named Ralph’s Joy of Living as one of its 2013 Dealers of the Year. Fifteen dealers in total were chosen from among its 4,000 members, and Ralph’s was named as one of the “best of the best” for their marketplace leadership and dedicated service to its customers and communities.

The Tiffin Fund of Tiffin University helps support the University’s operating budget. Only 80 percent of the cost of an education at TU is covered by tuition, and the balance is subsidized by annual donations.
