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

    There’s a new food and wine lover’s dream in Napa!

    The Culinary Institute of America at Copia has opened its doors to visitors and the local community. After acquiring the Copia property in late 2015, we’re excited about carrying forward the facility’s original goal of providing amazing food, wine, and arts-based experiences.

    Situated next to the Oxbow Public Market on First Street in downtown Napa, this newly expanded California venue offers an array of food and wine experiences for visitors to the burgeoning Oxbow district.
