Welcome to the Vina Vita University. At Kuhlman Cellars we believe that wine is product that is 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'.
In gaining an understanding of such a complex topic we learn how to enjoy wine better in our daily lives. For this reason, we've launched a series of classes that will help demystify some of the topics at hand making learning fun, hands on and approachable. Cheers!

Join Winemaker Benédicte Rhyne and Kuhlman Founder Chris Cobb for an afternoon discussion about the winemaking process. In an industry that relies as much on its artistry as chemistry, we'll examine how small decisions inflict great change. Learn the theory, then put your skills to the test blending your own wine!
Topics of discussion include:
Basic Winemaking practice and terminology
Understanding the effects of the winemakers decisions
Identify the cause and effect of building 'structure' in wine
Try your hand at blending your own red wine! Blending will be a team event to acheive the ideal wine. Submissions will be judged by Sommelier Jennifer Beckmann and prizes will be awarded!
