Crystal Mountain asks that you please be responsible about your alcoholic consumption. We encourage our guests to assign a designated driver or use on-property shuttles when leaving the festival. Cars left overnight will not be ticketed or towed. Those who chose not to drink at the festival will still have to pay the same price for admission as those who are drinking. All attendees have access to a lineup of musical talent, food and beverage vendors, merchandise, festival activities and prizes. For this reason, discounted tickets are not available.

Wineries of Old Mission Peninsula – Divas Uncorked – June 10, 2016

Get Pampered During Girls’ Night Out

Friday, June 10, 2016
5:30-9:30pm

This Girls’ Night Out – which sells out within just a few days – is an evening devoted entirely to women, wine, food, and fun. Enjoy a wine selection served in a souvenir glass with food pairing at each of the eight member wineries, as well as giveaways and pampering. Unwind and recharge as only girls know how!

There are transportation companies which you may hire separately from the event, but most guests simply drive themselves.  The entire peninsula is only 19 miles long and five miles at its widest, so all wineries are within a just a few miles of each other. Click here for a list of transport companies if you’d like to hire a shuttle tour.

Look for updated information as the 2016 Divas Uncorked approaches…

Save the date!
