When the Purdue for Life Foundation/Alumni Association approached me to collaborate with them on an exclusive wine project, I was very flattered and honored. I graduated from Purdue in 1999 and started Kokomo Winery five years later, naming it after my hometown in Indiana. Purdue equipped me with the foundation necessary to become an entrepreneur and it gave me the confidence to follow my dreams. I’m thrilled to be able to do what I love and share our wine with fellow Boilermakers.
This partnership was formed with the intention of creating delicious, boutique, small batch lots of wines that highlight and celebrate what it means to be a Boilermaker. Each wine and each release features a unique label representing a different Purdue building or landmark, making every bottle a must have for your collection, wine cellar, kitchen table or gift to family and friends.
