Copia Re-opens

On Saturday, February 18, the DeAngelos attended the grand re-opening of Copia in Napa. The museum and educational center funded by Robert and Margrit Mondavi was ahead of its time when it opened in November 2001.  It struggled for several years before closing in 2008.  Of course there was no “there, there” at that time.  Since then the town of Napa has become a destination in and of itself – especially the tourist-friendly Oxbow Market next door and the Wine Train nearby. We visited when it first opened and had lunch at Julia’s Kitchen, named for one of its supporters, the one and only Julia Child.  Now the lovely building on the Napa River has been purchased by the Culinary Institite at Greystone and will feature cooking classes, wine tastings, art collections and dining adventures. We are delighted it has found a new life.
