Mendocino County Crab, Wine and Beer Festival

Jan. 18-27, 2019

Held midway through the long winter months, the 10-day county-wide Mendocino County Crab, Wine & Beer Festival is an opportunity to shrug off the winter blues and indulge in fine seafood and wine. 

Mendocino County is home to fishermen who harvest Dungeness crab and to grape growers and winemakers who reap autumn’s bounty to produce fine wines that pair exquisitely with seafood. During the festival you will enjoy gourmet crab-themed dinners, family-style crab and cioppino feeds, crab fishing adventures, a Wine Competition showcasing local wines, and the ever popular Crab Cake Cook-off that highlights the talents of our county’s chefs!

On January 27th, Handley Cellars will share the bounty of hour harvest in our annual Crab, Wine & Beer Festival Open House in our tasting room. Enjoy tasting our wines paired perfectly with “crabby” bites. Be sure to take advantage of our festival pricing!
