Crab, crab, and more crab -- wine and beer, too!

Crab, beer, and wine anyone? What a great way to start out the new year with the Mendocino Crab, Wine & Beer Days.

For the last 19 years, restaurants, winemakers, and even the fishermen and mushroom pickers welcome locals and visitors alike to join in celebrating Mendocino County’s relationship with the forest and the sea. Wherever you are in Mendocino County this time of year, you’ll find gourmet crab dishes, wonderful wines, and savory craft beer. Check out some of the activities on our event calendar

You’ll enjoy taking part in family style cioppino and crab feeds, gourmet winemaker dinners, wine and crab pairings, beer tasting, outdoor adventures, lodging specials, arts and performances, and more. This annual county-wide celebration, held this year from Jan. 19th through Jan. 28th, is not-to-be-missed.  The highlight of the festival is the Crab Cake Cook-off & Wine Competition, a fundraiser for Mendocino Coast Clinics.
