  • The CIA at Copia

    Expanding the College’s Presence in Wine Country and Reestablishing an Innovative Food and Wine Destination

    The Culinary Institute of America acquired the Copia property in November 2015. We are excited about carrying forward the facility’s original goal of providing excellence in culinary education and food, wine, and arts-based experiences for both visitors and our local communities when we reopen as the CIA at Copia in 2016.

    Situated next to the Oxbow Public Market on First Street in downtown Napa, our newly expanded California campus will provide visitors to the burgeoning Oxbow district with an array of food and wine offerings.

    Coming in 2016
