Rising castle-like on the western hills, The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone is one of the Napa Valley’s most historic and majestic properties. It’s also one of the world’s most unique and inspiring locations for culinary education. Built in the late 19th century and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, our impressive Greystone facility in St. Helena was once home to the Christian Brothers Winery.
