Napa, CA — September 4, 2019 — The Culinary Institute of America at Copia is the first location in Napa County to offer Volta charging stations for electric vehicles.

Located in the Oxbow District in the heart of wine country, The CIA at Copia is open daily to the public and offers an array of entertaining culinary experiences delivered by CIA chefs and experts. The Volta charging stations are yet another new amenity the CIA team has put in place to provide a sustainable convenience for visitors.

“We are deeply rooted in this community and always looking for ways to make visiting our downtown Napa location as enjoyable as possible,” said Tom Bensel, managing director of the CIA California. “Like the CIA, Volta is sustainability-oriented, and the charging stations will provide some peace of mind for those living in or traveling to Napa with electric vehicles in need of a quick charge.”
