Wine strengths Copia boasts one of the city’s largest Restaurant Award–winning wine lists, managed by wine director Cherie Moery-Metzka. The selections are organized by grape variety and cover regions around the world, from Hungary and Chile to a local Missouri label. California, France, Italy and Washington are the strongest sections.
Cuisine Guests can purchase bottles to go at $10 below the wine list prices or stay for a meal in the warm, high-ceilinged space. Chef Donald Butler adds Southern influence to steak-house staples, coating blackened ribeye in a rub of Creole spices and serving roast chicken with andouille sausage. There are also several seafood and vegetarian options.
Fixed flights To let guests explore the expansive list, Copia features nine variations of four-wine flights, each with a theme, like “Sweet and Sassy” (including a Moscato rosé and a Riesling) or “West Coast Tour.”
Versatile space In addition to Copia’s wine garden and dining room, there’s also a banquet room, two wine cellars and a tasting room. All areas can be booked for anything from large events with hundreds of guests to intimate tastings.
