    BTW, Napa Register just reported that Copia may be out of bankruptcy proceedings and it sounds like there are a few interested parties in buying the assets, including the property. http://www.napavalleyregister.com/articles/2009

    The game is getting my creative juices flowing. I am buying a copy to see what I can come up with in the way of a learning experience for Constellation employees. Will keep you apprised…

    Yeah, the COPIA site being sold certainly sounds promising; I'd be curious to know who the “interested parties” were. Might be time to check in with Lew Purdue…

    The game itself is really interesting. It will definitely demonstrate that it's easy to be reckless and even easier to be too conservative when trying to build a winery. The true challenge is finding the sweet spot where, as a winery owner, you grow just fast enough to prosper.

    No kidding, it can definitely be used as an educational tool for people who may not entirely appreciate the challenges of being responsible for all winery operations.
