Saturday, January 27, 2024 ~ 2:00 to 5:00 PM ~ Los Alamos Mushroom Festival at Bedford Tasting Room and Courtyard, Los Alamos

This is our 17th year for this event and it keeps getting better! For those with a penchant for edible fungus, this is a culinary event not to be missed. The afternoon event unites mushroom and wine lovers alike to revel in the gustation of mushroom-centric dishes and Bedford wine. It’s a sellout every year, so make reservations now!

Each year “local” and cultivated mushrooms are featured along with those brought in from Oregon. Dried and fresh, there is a multitude of varieties including Chanterelles, Hedgehogs, Shitake, Porcini, Oyster, Maitake, Candy Cap, Huitacoche, and Black Trumpet.  Dishes will range from simply grilled buttons to complex layered patés and wood-fired flatbreads prepared by the Bedford Culinary Kitchen headed by winemaker Stephan Bedford. The event is a casual walk around with stations. Additional dishes arrive continually. This year we will also have live folk music.

Legendary mycologist Professor Bob Cummings will hold court to answer your questions and expand your fungus knowledge. Have something strange growing in your lawn? He is the person to identify it. Stephan Bedford’s extensive collection of mushroom related books and field guides will be on hand to peruse, as well as, edible and inedible mushroom displays.

The fungus festivities begin at 2:00 pm (rain or shine) at the Bedford Winery Tasting Room and Courtyard located at 448 Bell Street, downtown Los Alamos. $80 per person includes a glass of wine. This event sells out fast! For reservations contact the tasting room 805-344-2107 or email tastingroom@bedfordwinery.com.

Saturday, November 4, 2023 ~ 5:30 – 9:00 pm ~ W.I.N.O Radio Dinner Show at Bedford Tasting Room & Courtyard

It’s back! Step back in time and embrace the excitement and spontaneity of an old-time, live, radio dinner show. The original production embraces the excitement and spontaneity of live, radio dinner theater of yesteryear, and has been touted as an up-tempo Prairie Home Companion – on wine.

Each year the show has a different theme and a completely new script that is performed only once by The Bedford Radio Players hosted by Fred “Garrison” Sanders. The program is a compilation of entertainment featuring the folk and blue grass music of Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble. Comedy skits include another installment in the Adventures of Peno Noir, Wine Detective series, and cameo appearance by the comical Captain Bucky, a salty barnacled puppet via puppeteer Kevin Carlson. Other highlights include the smart phone challenge where guests can win fabulous prizes utilizing their cell phones. All this and a Harvest Dinner created by winemaker Stephan Bedford and the Bedford Winery Culinary Team, served with Bedford wines.
