The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone is a branch campus of the private culinary college the Culinary Institute of America. The Greystone campus, located on State Route 29/128 in St. Helena, California, offers associate degrees and two certificate programs in culinary arts and baking and pastry arts. The CIA at Greystone and the Culinary Institute of America at Copia make up the school's California branch.

The campus' primary facility is a 117,000-square-foot (10,900 m2) stone building, known as Greystone Cellars and built for William Bowers Bourn II as a cooperative wine cellar in 1889. Hamden McIntyre designed the gravity flow winery along with other wineries of the decade. The building changed ownership several times, and was notably owned by the Christian Brothers as a winery from 1945 to 1989. It was used as a winery until its sale to the school in 1993, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

  • We just had a short time between winery’s and because of the time we had didn’t want to go to a restaurant. My friend and I stopped at “The Culinary institute Napa”. 😱 The staff and the students were amazing, the food 😋 was even more amazing and guess what 🎊it was just what we needed before our next destination. I highly recommend visit…. #illycoffee
  • First thing first - really cute spot got the castle view stone work and classic dine in area However for most people who come with high hope I’d sadly say it wasn’t satisfying enough. Food Looks good and delicate by that I mean I was still hungry after the 5 course tasting menu. That’s not my main complaint. I understand fancy food comes with tiny portion, that’s just the rule. Flavor wise and pairing wasn’t mind blowing. Taste good but I expect more transformative experience out of the price. No new flavor was introduced sadly. I won’t advise people not to go if experience is more important for you. But after all you’re in Napa where you have many other good options to choose from if you’re after flavors.
