2014 Mendocino County Mushroom, Wine & Beer Festival

Mendocino County provides a feast for mushroom, wine & beer lovers!

Dozens of winery tasting rooms are dotted around the county with a myriad wines to tickle the most the discerning wine lover's fancy. Add in world-class brewpubs with their multitude of beers, ales, stouts, and special brews to suit every taste. Then finish the mix with the over 3,000 types of mushrooms that pop up in the county every year, and you've got a veritable feast for the senses!

Every Fall, beginning in October when the gentle rains begin, the mushrooms flourish in abundance. It’s the perfect place to sample and pick delicious edible mushrooms such as chanterelles, porcinis, morels, and hedgehogs, and even the extremely rare candy cap mushroom, a culinary treat with an intense maple syrup flavor, which grows only along the northern coast of California.

The highlight of mushroom season is Mendocino County’s Annual 10-day Mushroom, Wine & Beer Festival that features a myriad of events that includes mushroom dinners, wine- and beer-pairing workshops, mushroom exhibits, guided mushroom foraging walks and much, much more. Events take place throughout the County, from the inland valleys to the coast.

Let’s get wild! Enter any or all of our great contests with chances to win overnights, tours, and cash! Full details and rules for each contest are at www.visitmendocino.com/mushroomcontest.
