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!
