 there’s a festival for that, a weeklong series of mushroom, winemaker and brewmaster dinners; exhibits; and wine and mushroom pairings: the Mushroom, Wine & Beer Festival.
Mushroom hunts by foot, horseback and mountain bike; a special mushroom, wine and beer run of the Skunk Train; mushroom workshops and walks at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens; and the Mighty Mushroom Weigh-Off will take place over the course of the week, in every pocket of the county.
Reservations open Saturday for a series of new starlight snowshoe hikes that include a dinner at the Swiss-style mid-mountain Chalet at Alpine Meadows.

Deep in the south of France, Provence offers an almost predictable palette of travel experiences: oceans of vineyards, fields of scented lavender, adorable villages and intoxicating bouillabaisse.
Most Roman towns in Provence had a theater (some had several), baths, and aqueducts; the most important places had sports arenas.

For $100, I could have gotten the Reserve Experience, which features a tasting in the Library, enhanced with barrel samples, a cheese-charcuterie board, plus a tour of the 6,875-square-foot estate house (tasting room), the 7,500-square-foot winery, 12,000 square feet of caves, and vineyards.
Yet, with such an open, welcoming layout to the place, it’s easy to do a self-tour, and my host let me take a peek inside the labyrinthine caves after I asked.
