The Culinary Institute of America




From the ivy-covered, hand-cut stone walls, grand cathedral ceilings and the highest quality of ingredients, the historic property exudes excellence in beauty and culinary greatness. With a backdrop of the Greystone building, the Herb Terrace offers stunning views of the Napa Valley and is surrounded by flowers and herb gardens that tantalize the senses. As you enter the front doors, the awe-inspiring, 90-foot atrium makes a dramatic first impression for guests as they admire the world's largest corkscrew collection in the adjacent Berns Room. The Vintners Hall of Fame Barrel Room is the grand finale to the evening, offering a dramatic setting that is both rustic and elegant, the perfect setting for a special celebration.
