 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.
Focusing specifically on artisan producers — small, out-of-the-way wineries turning out innovative, hand-crafted vintages that don’t necessarily follow the rules — the event includes a winemaker mixer, tastings, winemaker panels and tasting seminars, and an after-party.
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.
Impressive physical remains — especially its stately temple and majestic arena — testify to Nimes’ former importance.
Wherever they went, the Romans impressed the “barbaric” locals with massive engineering projects.
Another fine Roman legacy in Provence is the open-air theater in Orange (another popular retirement town for army officers).
When a trove of ancient sculptures and bronzes was discovered underwater a few years ago, scuba-diving archaeologists had to haul them out at night to keep the site hidden from poachers.
The evocative Roman ruins you’ll see there make history an essential part of the picnic of the good life in France.

Modern wineries usually aren’t modest affairs, and something has got to help pay for the spectacular settings, where architects, interior designers and landscape artists enjoy nearly the same marquee billing as the winemakers.
The Gould Evans architecture is stunning, with sloped ceilings supported by expansive glass wings, a rammed-earth wall, and rich finishes of black walnut, travertine and basalt stone.
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.
The owners are George and Pam Hamel Jr., the managing director is George Hamel III, and the winemaker is John B.
