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'.
In gaining an understanding of such a complex topic we learn enjoy wine better in our daily lives. For this reason, we host a series of classes demystifying wine topics and make learning fun, hands on and approachable. Cheers!
