Thank you for your question. I'd like to clarify that you are asking about a Wine Cap mushroom (since I'm unable to find any "wine cap" plant, and mushrooms are not plants). One drawback to growing mushrooms around blueberries is that blueberries need ample sun to produce berries, and mushrooms prefer shadier, cooler environments.

Here is an article about wine cap mushroom cultivation that explains how to begin it: https://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=12000

If you have more information, I'll try to supplement. Thanks!
