Kokomo Wine Shop


The partnership between Purdue for Life Foundation/Alumni Association and Kokomo Winery 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.

Because they are limited in production, Boilermaker Wines can only be purchased directly through our website, and they often sell out quickly. Our next release will be this November. Sign up below to gain first access to all future Boilermaker Wine releases. You will be the first to know when these limited wines become available!

About Boilermaker Wines

Toast to the old Gold and Black, and escape to the vineyards of Northern California. Purdue Alumni has partnered with Kokomo Winery to bring you this layered and complex wine. Crafted with tradition in Healdsburg, California, Kokomo’s terroir-driven wines focus on the three distinctive appellations of Sonoma County – The Russian River, Dry Creek, and Alexander Valleys. Kokomo owner and Winemaker, Erik Miller (T’99), established the winery in 2004. Hailing from Kokomo, Indiana, Miller honored his roots when choosing the name for his venture – and his Hoosier hospitality is evident from the vineyard to the glass.

“Purdue equipped me to be an entrepreneur and it gave me the confidence to follow my dreams. I’m glad to be able to do what I love and share our wine with fellow Boilermakers.”
- Erik Miller, Winemaker
