SAN FRANCISCO - Copia: The American Center for Wine, Food, and the Arts - a bankrupt Napa, Calif., nonprofit with about $77 million of outstanding tax-exempt bonds - has abandoned its attempt to secure debtor-in-possession financing, signaling that the so-called wine shrine has closed its doors for good.

Without DIP financing, Copia's main asset, an 80,000-square-foot museum and cultural center on 12 acres overlooking the Napa River, will probably be turned over to ACA Financial Guaranty Corp., insurer of its debt.
