One of the world’s premier wine and food destinations, the Napa Valley is a true celebration of the winemaker, the farmer, and the chef. It’s also where you’ll find two amazing culinary experiences, just 20 miles apart—the CIA at Greystone in St. Helena and the CIA at Copia in Napa.

The historic landmark main building at our St. Helena campus once served as the home to the Christian Brothers Winery. So, it’s only fitting that today, wine and food enthusiasts flock here to take classes that are enhanced by the natural bounty of the farms and wineries of the Napa Valley region. Greystone is home to our academic programs in California, and you’ll be able to explore the campus by taking a tour, dining in one of our restaurants, attending an event, or taking a class!

The Napa Valley itself serves as a centerpiece while you explore the “how’s” and all-important “whys” of cooking and baking in one of our multi-day Boot Camps. Choose to take our signature Farm-to-Table Boot Camp, discover the beauty of artisan breads, or enjoy a world tour of flavors and cuisines. There’s something for every taste.

CIA + ATK = A Perfect Partnership!

We know this because two of the experts who develop ATK’s foolproof recipes and star in their award-winning television shows are our very own CIA grads Julia Collin Davison ’96 and Dan Souza ’08.

So, get ready as we bring you one-of-a-kind culinary experiences that will empower you to have more confidence—and more fun—in the kitchen! Choose from single-day hands-on classes for adults or kids or multi-day immersive boot camps at any of the CIA’s locations.
