    CIA at Copia

    The CIA at Copia, in downtown Napa, offers a variety of food and wine classes on a daily basis held in the Napa Valley Vintners Theater. For more information on classes and demos at Copia, please visit our Copia website.

    CIA at Greystone

    On weekends, the Greystone’s DeBaun Theatre comes to life with live cooking demos performed by the college’s renowned chef-instructors. During these one-hour events, you’ll taste seasonal flavors of Napa Valley wine country paired with wine from GREYSTONE CELLARS. Recipes change every weekend, so you’ll want to attend our California cooking demonstrations again and again.
