Mondavi’s Food-Wine-Arts Center Closes Abruptly

COPIA, the center for food, wine and the arts founded by Robert Mondavi in downtown Napa, California, closed its doors without warning on Friday and is “suspending operations” while it tries to raise cash. The center, which in September reduced its schedule from seven days open to three and laid off 24 of 80 staff members, “has lost at least $4 million a year since it opened in 2001.”
