CIA at Copia Uncorks Wine Tasting Showcase

The Culinary Institute of America at Copia introduces its Wine Tasting Showcase—an interactive and immersive tasting experience featuring a rotating selection of wineries from the Napa Valley and beyond. The Showcase is located in the CIA at Copia’s newly installed Wine Hall of Fame, offering visitors a unique opportunity to taste wines from six different wineries in one place.

Established in 2007 and originally housed at the CIA at Greystone, the Wine Hall of Fame moved to Copia to give broader public recognition to the men and women whose vision and determination have made the American wine industry what it is today. This free exhibit consists of bronze bas relief sculptures of inductees, along with their biographies.

The Wine Tasting Showcase utilizes six custom-built wood bars, designed by local artist Luigi Oldani, that serve as the tasting stations. Each winery offers a selection, and guests can choose which wineries they want to visit and which wines they’d like to taste, giving them the freedom to create their own tasting experience. Stations are hosted by the wineries’ own educators so guests can learn about the wines directly from a winery representative. The collection of wineries will change every few months.
