Saturday, February 19, 2022~ 2:00 to 5:00 PM ~ Mushrooms Gone Wild! Mushroom Celebration at Bedford Tasting Room and Courtyard, Los Alamos


This is our 15th 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.

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.

Bedford’s extensive collection of mushroom related books and field guides will be on hand for those interested in expanding their fungus knowledge. Vendor Branden’s Gourmet Mushrooms will be offering local mushrooms for purchase.

The fungus festivities begin at 2:00 pm at the Bedford Winery Tasting Room and Courtyard located at 448 Bell Street, downtown Los Alamos. $65 per person; $50 for wine club members. This event sells out fast! For reservations contact the tasting room 805-344-2107 or tastingroom@bedfordwinery.com.

Saturday, March 7, 2020~ 3:00 to 7:00 PM ~ Blues Great Mississippi John Hurt 128th Birthday Celebration at Bedford Tasting Room & Courtyard, Los Alamos

Join us to celebrate a country blues master on his 128th birthday!

We always make our events multi-dimensional – fun and educational! The event includes a musical performance by guitarist Joe Payne along with anecdotes and historical musings about Mississippi John Hurt and how he influenced American music culture. Also, an authentic, Mississippi supper researched and created by winemaker Stephan Bedford and the Bedford Culinary team.

Born in 1892 in Mississippi, John Hurt was a self taught guitarist with an extraordinarily lyrical and refined finger-picking style. He sang with a warmth unique in the field of blues, and the gospel influence in his music gave it a depth and reflective quality unusual its genre. Yet John, a humble, hardworking man, spent most of his years as a sharecropper eluding musical recognition. Late in life, to his amazement, he found a mass audience, and was playing concerts in front of thousands of people — for fees that seemed astronomical to a man who had always made music a sideline to his life as a farm laborer. His songs have been recorded by Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia, Doc Watson, Taj Mahall, and others
