US: Mondavi redundancies announced
Robert Mondavi Corp. has begun laying off staff. The winemaker has let 360 Napa Valley workers go, most of them from its flagship winery. The move follows Mondavi's announcement last month that it is to focus on 'lifestyle' wines and divest itself of its luxury wine assets and investments.
According to a spokeswoman, some of the 360 staff laid off will remain with the company until early next year, while others were given two weeks' notice.
The breakdown of redundancies includes 83 full-time employees in Oakville, 143 part-time or seasonal workers at the facility and 134 vineyard workers.
