Name the Alien October 1 - 31, 2020

This friendly freeloader recently showed up at our property. To be fair we did say all were welcome here. But it doesn’t have a name and we aren’t even sure what gender it is. So we need our communities to help us name our resident alien at Crystal Basin Cellars.

Submit your name ideas in person, email (, or Facebook.

Winner will be announced on October 31, 2020 at 4:00 pm at our “Fireworks-Free Alien Gender Reveal Party”

MASK-ARADE October 31, 2020
12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Sample and taste your way through El Dorado County during this once-a-year event. Participating wineries will be presenting you with special treats and wine pairings hoping to win your vote as the favorite.

Of course, here at Crystal Basin Winery, we have planned out some of the gooliest goodies on the planet. And in case you want some out of this world experiences – we will be having our “Fireworks-Free Alien Gender Reveal Party” for our resident alien at 4:00 pm.
