CIA Acquires Copia

CopiaThe CIA has acquired the Napa, CA property that was once Copia: The American Center for Wine, Food and the Arts.The Culinary Institute of America at Copia will reestablish the facility with its original goal of providing excellence in culinary education and food-based experiences to Napa Valley visitors.

Copia contains a 280-seat theater, two restaurant venues, a demonstration kitchen and theater, library, retail space, classrooms, and exhibition spaces. There is also an outdoor amphitheater with seating for more than 700 and an array of outdoor gardens. Situated next to the Oxbow Public Market in downtown Napa, the CIA at Copia will provide visitors to the burgeoning Oxbow district an expanded array of food and wine offerings.

Plans for the CIA's newest location are in development, but visitors can anticipate new programs focused on food and wine, new dining facilities, an expanded calendar of special events, a public museum, and other consumer-focused experiences. The college's Food Business School, the world's first business school for food entrepreneurship and innovation, will also be headquartered there. Programming is expected to be introduced in spring 2016.
