Another all around busy week has given way to the weekend.

Here’s a quick round-up of some of the happenings from the past several days…

Fall in Napa Valley

Copia Seeking Buyers
Downtown Napa’s much maligned Copia, which closed late last year, announced this week that it was (finally) “…seeking buyers with the opening of a formal sale process.” Here’s an excerpt from the press release:

Located on the Napa River in the heart of Napa Valley, the property spans more than 17 acres with three contiguous parcels and will be sold or leased as a whole or as individual pieces. The centerpiece of the site is a two-story, 78,632 square foot building that previously housed the food and wine center, which opened in 2001 as a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and sharing the benefits of wine, its relationship to food and its importance to the American culture.

Napa Valley Marriott Gets Some Ink
Our friends (and neighbors) at the Napa Valley Marriott Hotel & Spa got some love from the Los Angeles Times for their continually creative and savvy use of Twitter and Facebook.

Harvest Kicks Into Gear
Following several weeks of waiting, the annual grape harvest is now in full swing across the valley. Early reports suggest that the 2009 vintage will be of super high quality.
