If you are a regular visitor of the Mendocino Coast area, then you have probably been counting down the weeks until the Crab, Wine & Beer Festival. If you have never stayed with us in Fort Bragg before, you are about to be introduced to one of the country’s Top 10 Seafood & Wine Festivals.
Happening along the Mendocino Coast from January 20 to 29, this year’s big event has a little bit of something for everyone.
With food and wine tastings, dinner events and more, there are almost endless opportunities to indulge in flavorful seafood creations, local wines and lots of fun.
The week-long celebration begins this Friday, January 20 with the Frey Wines & Crab Bites event in Redwood Valley. Here you can try some locally crafted organic wines, seafood appetizers and live music. Other events we are looking forward to attending include Barrel Tasting 101 and the Crab Cake Cook-Off & Wine Tasting Competition.
Barrel Tasting 101 takes place on Saturday, January 21 and Sunday January 22 and is the perfect event for those who are always looking for a new favorite blend of wine.
All along Highway 101, local winemakers will be opening barrels of brand new wines for guests to sample as they munch on appetizers crafted by some of our favorite local restaurateurs.
Then, the next Saturday (January 28), the Crab Cake Cook-Off & Wine Tasting Competition gives you another opportunity to sample the best crab cakes of Mendocino County, as well as some of the most incredible wine. Benefiting Mendocino Coast Clinics, this gourmet event is one that no foodie in Fort Bragg should pass up.
All across the county friends and families will be getting together to shake off the winter blues during the Mendocino County Crab, Wine & Beer Festival, and you should too!
