Enough food for dinner

Your tour guide will greet you at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) for the first of four stops that will compose this gourmet pairing meal.  You will stroll along the river in order to access three other key restaurants that contribute to the San Francisco Bay Area Michelin Guide and the Wine Country’s culinary fame.  You can expect to spend approximately 30 minutes in each restaurant with nice walks in between to balance calories and exercise! Your tour will end at Napa’s General Store, on the south side of Main Street.

Discover Napa's Riverfront through your tastebuds on this carefully curated experience beginning with Julia Child's kitchen at the CIA

Copia at CIA

Copia chefs are up and coming in the CIA program and will cook before your eyes in the kitchen Julia Child established with Robert Mondovi.
