Welcome to Vina Vita University. At Kuhlman Cellars we believe wine is a product born of passion and should be enjoyed with the same celebratory vigor. Wine should enrich our lives and should be shared with friends, family, fellowship and most importantly...Food. We call this enrichment Vina Vita, or the 'wine life'.
Vina Vita University strives to help our club members and friends of Kuhlman Cellars gain an understanding of the rich and complex topic that is wine and winemaking, so that we may enrich, demystify, and better enjoy wine in our daily lives. Vina Vita University hosts regular classes on wine topics. These classes are hands on, approachable, and tons of fun.
Upcoming VVU Class: Sense of Smell, Decoding the Aroma in Wine
This second installment of our wine appreication series helps us make sense of how we taste using our sense of smell. Everything we smell in our glass of wine has a meaning, a reason. Identifying these reasons starts to give us more of an understanding of our wines. This class brings understanding of how smell works and how we can use that sense to tailor our food and wine preferences.
